Parquetry Flooring Sydney
Parquetry is a flooring technique which employs small pieces of timber arranged to create a decorative pattern. The result combines opulent artistry with the worldly charm of a timber floor. There are many different types of patterns that can be used: from the simple to the elaborate, and the zany to the ordered. You can choose the pattern that best suits your home or office and create a unique style all of your own.
Parquetry became popular in France in the 17th century as a replacement for difficult to maintain marble in well-to-do houses. Solid timber floors at the time were considered lower-class, as they were much cheaper and less ornate than marble. However, marble was too difficult to maintain, and trapped moisture underneath, which promoted rotting floor joists.
Parquetry flooring has emerged as an alternative to marble as it is both decorative and durable. The same is true today for parquetry flooring, and if you’re looking for a floor that strikes a balance between beauty and durability, it is a great option for you. Parquetry floors are simple to maintain: they can be swept and mopped clean without the slightest inkling that they were ever dirty. They can also be sanded down and resurfaced many times as they degrade with age.
