Parquet flooring is an addition to a home that brings a touch of beauty, comfort and warmth to your space. We are on team wooden floors because they could give your whole space a huge makeover and you didn’t know that until now. Yes, it’s a big deal to decide on changing your floors from let’s say ceramics to parquet floorings because they’re completely two different materials. It’s not just the material we’re talking about, it’s the ambience itself, the feel, the comfort, the warmth and the overall look. There’s always something special about having a natural look to your flooring that just brings all the elements of your home together.
If you don’t have parquet installed as your flooring you should start considering that makeover.
We’ll be mentioning some of a benefits of having parquet floorings as well as the different types and the process of installing it just so you wouldn’t get overwhelmed about the process itself, we’ll put your mind at ease and tell you that it’s a very simple, mess free process.
The process itself is simple and we’ll list them down as steps:
– Taking the desired areas measurements.
– Picking the right type ( we’ll be explaining this point more in details later on )
– Picking the right color for your desired space.
– Having insulation paper to place on your current flooring before installation ( we’ll also be chatting about this point later in details )
– Start the installation process by putting the pieces together.
Yes, it’s actually that easy of a process and you probably thought you’ll need so many tools to get it done. The beauty about parquet is that it’s designed to work like a puzzle, all you need is to attach the pieces together and you’re good to go. Yes, some parts could be a bit tricky specially around the edges or if any cutting is required, but that’s still not that hard to do if you have a saw or any cutting machinery you’re good to go. We would usually advise you to get help or supervision when cutting any parquet boards if you’re not capable of doing so yourself or just seek for a help from a professional if you’d rather not take any risks. Either way you’ll have a beautiful flooring installed in the same day because it’s not time consuming, depending on the area you’re covering.
We mentioned in the steps that you need to pick the right type of parquet before you think about installing. You ask why should we do that when flooring is supposed to work on all floors? It’s not about the floor itself it’s more about the space you’re thinking about getting parquet for. Let’s say you’re thinking about installing parquet in your kitchen or bathroom, obviously those two areas require constant cleaning more than any rooms around your house and also has sources of water that could harm your floors because not all parquet are considered water proof so you need to keep that in mind. There are two types of parquet that we’ll mention, one being your regular natural wooden parquet that could work for bedrooms, living rooms and basically any room that doesn’t have a direct water source. The second type is called SPC which stands for Stone Plastic Composite. It’s designed to be 100% waterproof and have so much features that works perfectly with kitchens and bathrooms like being anti-bacterial and germs 99%, it’s also scratch and stain resistance.
You should keep such features in mind for the desired areas in your home, other than that the installation process is the same for both types.
The second point we wanted to mention was the insulation paper that’s put on your current flooring before the parquet installation. If you’re thinking what’s the point of this type paper why not install the parquet right away? Well, it has it’s benefits obviously otherwise it wouldn’t be necessary. The paper has a couple of different uses first being a protective barrier between the current floor and the parquet you’re installing so you wouldn’t damage or scratch your existing flooring in case you decide to remove the parquet for some reason. Second use is that it helps in absorbing sounds of footsteps, it also helps in balancing the moisture so your floors wouldn’t be damaged. All that from just having insulation paper put down before the parquet.
