What are the different types of parquet?

There are two main types of real wood flooring: multilayer and solid wood floorings. These differ from each other through their construction.

Multi-layer wood 

Multi-layer or “engineered” wood floors comprise either two or three layers of wood, which are laid at right angles. The top layer is hardwood and the layers below are also wood-based products, for example, high-density fibreboard and pine.

According the thickness of the real wood wear layer a distinction is made between:

  • Parquet > 2.5 mm 
  • Wood floorings < 2.5 mm 
  • Veneer floorings < 0.7 mm 

These floors are available in a wide range of formats and thicknesses, which offer a low-cost real wood alternative to laminate.

Solid wood 

Solid wood floors are made up of one solid plank of wood, which is removed as a block right from the tree. They are then processed into flooring planks with tongue and grooves edges and are either pre-finished or finished on site.

According to the standards a distinction is made between

  • mosaic parquet (8 mm), 
  • lamparquet (6 - 13 mm) and 
  • solid parquet (> 13 mm).
