Wood is a hugely versatile material. With over 60,000 species of trees, it is possible to find wood for any situation. Whether it be a cosy living room or a practical kitchen, there is a grain and a colour to suit your needs.
A parquet floor also comes with many other benefits, the biggest of which being the environmental ones. Steel manufacturing releases 40 times more pollutants and 3 times more CO₂ into our atmosphere than wood. Concrete releases 6 times more pollutants and brick 4 times more. Wood is also biodegradable which means that if you do decided to replace your wooden flooring it won't be filling up landfills.
Wood is also a smart investment; a wooden floor doesn't depreciate, in fact it usually increases the resale value of a home. Wood is also an amazing insulator. To achieve the insulation of just 1 inch of wood, 15 inches of concrete must be used. Wooden floors are also very sturdy: an average carpet needs to be replaced 3-6 times before a wooden floor will require a retouch.
