You will also find yourself spoilt for choice when it comes to colour. In addition to the traditional warm tones available, you can choose from whites, greys, honey tones and more.

Not always solid wood

Solid wood parquet flooring can be a tempting option for some, but it does come with its drawbacks. For one, the cost can be out of budget for some homeowners. And let’s not forget the maintenance that comes with solid wood, which will also come with additional costs over the years.

Solid wood also may not be a suitable choice for certain rooms in the home as particular environments can cause the wood to shrink, expand or even warp. This means that solid wood is not viable for bathrooms or rooms with underfloor heating.


However, LVT is a great alternative as it offers the same style options as you would find with solid wood. The difference here is that this option is resistant to things such as moisture and temperature, meaning it is suited for pretty much any room in the home!

With the click-flooring options available, the installation has never been easier. Even if you don’t fancy installing the flooring yourself, professional installation will cost significantly less than it would for solid wood.

The beauty of LVT is that it comes in both LVT wood and stone finishes, and this applies to parquet flooring! You can still achieve a parquet stone floor without risking cracked tiles or cold feet.
