Floors of the Week: Parquet Flooring

Parquet flooring

We recently added a Parquet section to the Floormaker website, which means that customers looking to add parquet wood flooring to their homes can now see all the best options on one handy page.

If you're unfamiliar with parquet flooring (composed of small wooden blocks, which can be arranged into a variety of decorative patterns), you may be wondering why it's such a popular, sought-after option. Well, like any wooden floor, parquet flooring is robust, luxurious, and easy-to-clean; on top of all this, however, parquet also allows the owner to create something a little more unique than the average floor covering. You can use your parquet flooring to form an eye-catching herringbone pattern, a wooden mosaic, or another pattern of your own devising. The choice is yours!

Here are four of the best parquet floors from Floormaker's collection:

Cherry parquet flooring

Parador Cherry Parquet Flooring

Black parquet flooring

Parador Black Oak Parquet Flooring

Limed oak parquet

10.5mm Limed Oak Parquet Flooring

Oak wood parquet floor

10.5mm Oak Wood Parquet Flooring

Floors of the Week: Traditional & Modern Laminates

Laminate floors

Laminate flooring is a tremendously contemporary flooring product; with a colossal variety of styles and designs to choose from, one can now find a laminate to fit even the most modern and cutting-edge of interior designs.

That said, laminate flooring is also excellent at emulating traditional wood coverings. In this week's Floors of the Week blog, we're going to take a look at a few examples from both sides of the traditional/modern divide - Floormaker's Laminate Flooring department has plenty of both!

Cavallo oak flooring

10mm Narrow Board Cavallo Oak

We'll start with our terrificaly bright Cavallo Oak design, which suits this modern dining space perfectly!


Grey brown oxford oak

11mm Anti-Slip Grey/Brown Oxford Oak Flooring

From the slightly more old-fashioned end of the spectrum comes this Grey/Brown Oxford Oak flooring. The beautiful, weathered-looking design will add depth and authenticity to any space.


White oak laminate

11mm Riffel White Oak Laminate Flooring (Anti-Slip)

This light-coloured product also has a slightly weathered design, but it also also has a crisp breeziness that we think would be ideal for contemporary interiors.


Oxford oak flooring

11mm Anti-Slip Oxford Oak Flooring

A lighter alternative to the Oxford Oak flooring that you've already seen, this product has a wonderfully detailed surface that makes it look almost exactly like a traditional solid oak floor.


Belfort oak laminate

11mm Belfort Oak Anti-Slip Laminate Flooring

Here's a smooth-looking wood effect floor that we think would work equally well in modern and traditional designs. What do you think?


Parisienne oak flooring

10mm Parisienne Oak Flooring

We'll end with the darkest of this week's selection. If you're trying to give your home a dark, dusky elegance, this sumptuous oak-effect floor is just what the doctor ordered!

Without further ado, then, here are our latest Floors of the Week: four stunning herringbone products from Floormaker's Engineered Flooring department!

Floors of the Week: Strong & Sturdy

Sturdy flooring

Life can be tough on a floor. Whether it's a spileld drink, the cat's claws, or just the hustle and bustle of the daily grind, there's always something threatening to ruin your beautiful boards.

Fortunately, our floors are more than up to the task of coping with you and your family. Here are six examples of the tough, resilient products that we have to offer:

Rustic oak flooring

Luxury Vinyl Clic Flooring - Rustic Oak

Our Luxury Vinyl floors are superbly tough, and this design looks just like real oak!


Herringbone oak floor

10.5mm Oak Wood Herringbone Floor

Engineered wood flooring is inherently sturdy and long-lasting. That traditional-looking herringbone pattern hides a superbly robust construction!

Black slate tile

Another offering from our Luxury Vinyl range, this time in the style of beautiful black slate.


Playground laminate flooring

White oak flooring

13.5mm Engineered Prussian White Oak

Finally, here's another gem from our Engineered department. You might think that white flooring is a foolish choice for a busy family home, but this floor is easy to clean and superbly long-lasting!

Floors of the Week: Laminate, Engineered, or Solid Wood?

Laminate and wood flooring

So you've decided that your home needs a new floor, but you're not sure which type to buy. Do you want a hard-wearing Laminate floor, a robust Engineered product, or a sturdy, sumptuous Solid Wood surface?
