A Comprehensive Guide by VOGUE Parquet

Hello, I’m Daisy , the proud CO-Founder of VOGUE Parquet, America’s premier provider and contractor of exceptional hardwood flooring. Our journey has always been about bringing the beauty and warmth of natural wood into your spaces. Today, I want to take you through the various types of wood flooring, helping you make an informed decision for your home or business.

1. Solid Hardwood Flooring: The Timeless Classic Solid hardwood flooring is the epitome of traditional elegance. Each plank is milled from a single piece of timber, usually 3/4 inch thick. It's known for its longevity and can be sanded and refinished multiple times. Popular choices include oak, maple, and cherry. However, it’s susceptible to changes in humidity and is generally not recommended for basements. Best-Selling Solid Wood Species? Our French oak has been the most requested material this year, 2023.

2. Engineered Hardwood Flooring: Versatility Meets Stability Engineered wood is a modern marvel in the flooring world. Composed of a thin layer of hardwood atop a core of high-quality plywood, it offers the look of solid wood but with greater stability and resistance to moisture. This makes it suitable for a wider range of climates and installation areas, including over concrete subfloors.

6. Exotic Hardwood Flooring: Unique and Bold For those seeking something out of the ordinary, exotic hardwoods like Brazilian cherry, mahogany, or teak can be a captivating choice. They often offer richer colors and more dramatic grain patterns. However, it’s crucial to ensure that these woods are sourced responsibly to avoid environmental harm.

7. Reclaimed Wood Flooring: Rich with History and Character Reclaimed wood flooring comes from historical buildings and structures. It’s not only an environmentally sound choice but also brings a story and an unmatched character to your space. Each plank is unique, showcasing signs of wear and age that add to its appeal.

8. Parquet Flooring: Artistic and Elegant Parquet flooring is a mosaic of wood pieces, delivering an artistic and elegant appearance. This type of flooring often comes in geometric patterns, adding a sophisticated and unique look to your floors. It’s a testament to the artistic possibilities of wood as a material.
