As opposed to surface stained floors, parquets smoked by oxidation are stained deeper and provide a more unique and sustainable colour.

Decoplus Parquets can help you find a professional for laying your wood flooring.
Floating a wood floor, or "floating installation", is the quickest and easiest installation method for non-professionals, and can be undertaken by any DIY enthusiast.
The principle is very straightforward: assemble the flooring by glueing or clipping the strips together using their tongue and groove joints. The strips themselves are not stuck to the floor at all, hence the term "floating installation". This is an easier and more adaptable method to use when laying over the top of an existing floor-covering (plastic floorings, carpets, tiles, stone…). Advice : add 10% to your existing surface
