I used to be completely skeptical of the possibility that parquet flooring could be real wood. So how can you tell if it is? Read on to discover what I learned about this unique type of flooring.
The thing about real wood is that its grain is very clearly visible when viewed at a distance, giving the impression that it is. The same cannot be said for parquet flooring. The way it will look when it is finished will not be clear until you have actually seen it in person.
My first and best indicator of whether or not a floor is parquet is its surface. The appearance of the finish can be very subtle or be very dramatic. My best indication of parquet floors was the very smooth texture that it gave. It gave off a very warm and natural feel.
One thing to look for in different types of flooring is how smooth it looks. For example, in parquet, the slats are tightly fitted together but not glued together. Because of this, they slide easily and each slat has an equal amount of room to move. This gives a more "carpet" like appearance.
In terms of color, I don't think there is any other floor in the world that can provide the kind of rich color that parquet flooring Dubai can give. The effect of this is that you will rarely see any grain. The difference in appearance is stunning.
The texture of real wood floors is another thing that makes them seem to offer a softer feel than other types of flooring. Parquet floors can be a little more rigid than their counterparts, but they still offer the same soft feeling. No other floor in the world gives me that. In fact, I often find that the softer texture makes the room feel a little smaller than it really is.
Another way that parquet flooring Dubai gives me a more comfortable feel is because it is able to soak up a lot of moisture. This makes it a good choice for areas that are frequently in contact with water. This is also the reason why it is such a good choice for bathroom floors.
Other characteristics of real wood include the color that it gives off. When it is new, parquet will almost always come out in light shades of brown or some browns but the color will often fade or darken over time.
You can really tell by the way the finish ages, and even more so by the difference in color when it is new versus new parquet. It seems that the color of parquet floors will always deepen and darken over time.
For those that are concerned about the cost of a new floor, think again. There are many people who are considering investing in real wood floors simply because they know that they will not care much about the cost. The cost of flooring is very low compared to buying real wood, and it provides a luxurious feel.
Parquet flooring Dubai is the flooring type of choice for all sorts of rooms. It makes a room look very stylish, professional, and soft.
