Parquet flooring is a geometric mosaic design made from wooden blocks. It has a timeless beauty and emphasises the stunning decorative possibilities of wood floors created using traditional techniques. Stockbridge Flooring of Edinburgh has a great deal of experience in fitting parquet flooring in Edinburgh and the Lothians. We pride ourselves on the skill and excellence that goes into each and every job.

The word parquet originates from the French word ‘parqueterie,’ which was the practice of laying large diagonal squares used first at the Palace of Versailles. Parqueterie was used because the constant washing of marble flooring rotted the joists beneath the floors. The benefits of choosing a parquet floor today would be the durability and beauty of the finished product. Moreover, little maintenance is required for a parquet wood floor.

The French oak hardwood blocks used in parquet flooring can be placed in a variety of patterns in order to emphasise and enhance their surroundings. All of the blocks are cut in geometrical patterns, the most popular of which is herringbone. At Stockbridge Flooring we can advise you on all aspects of parquet flooring as well as being able to supply and fit the pattern that most suits your home.

When it comes to choosing your design, we can provide you with sustainable French oak blocks which are available in a variety of sizes. These blocks are machined to precise standards which create interlocking joints. The parquet hardwood flooring blocks are machined in order to provide a thick wear layer to give maximum strength and durability.
