How Parquet Flooring is making a comeback? 

Who remembers that zig zag style flooring you only ever found in your Grandparent’s home? Well that is what we like to call parquet flooring! The big question on a lot of people’s minds, is why exactly is it suddenly making a comeback?

Vintage is making a serious comeback, in the era where programmes like Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey are taking over our screens, it’s understandable why parquet flooring is shooting back into the limelight. The first question that needs answering is, what actually is parquet flooring?

What is Parquet Flooring?

Parquet Flooring is very easy to recognise, due to its patterned tiles and unique geometric shapes. There is an incredibly broad range of choice on show, so you’re bound to find something that suits you! They can pretty much be shaped into any design that you wish, and add a slightly different look to your home, that can’t be provided by other flooring types.

So the next big question is, why is parquet flying back to the top of the market? We live in a time where vintage clothes are the current fashion, and vinyl records are the new MP3, so it’s hardly surprising that vintage flooring is on the rerise. Today’s parquet flooring has been given a modern twist, but still holds all it’s old fashioned values. It’s extremely resilient, and will last you a very long time! So if you’re looking for a long term solution, this is the one for you!

One of the many advantages of parquet is you can pretty much mould it into any design you wish. They come in fixed lengths and sizes, and are usually best fitted in your kitchen or dining room. It’s best to install it when you know the exact design you’re looking for, otherwise it can look a little chaotic and cluttered.

Patience will be needed, as the installation can be incredibly time consuming! However once they are fitted, they truly are a beautiful addition to any home! If you’re looking to add to your vintage collection, then parquet flooring truly is the one for you! For more advice go to!

    Ohh I think this is a question of country? In scandinavia and atleast in Switzerland I know that parquet is what everyone has and wish to have at home ever since I can remember. But I know that in England and US it is very popular to have carpet floor…which I quite dislike!😅
