This engineered flooring with aged finishes offers all the advantages of solid wood with affordable installation. It matches perfectly all type of decoration, no matter the color of the furnitures and walls.
This finish is an alternative to older wood with colours that have been weathered over time. This treatment speeds up the aging process of wood's natural colours and depending on whether it contains knots or sapwoods, can achieve different colour shades. Moreover, the weathering effects become more pronounced and improve with time, revealing the wood'score. As opposed to surface stained floors, parquets smoked by oxidation are stained deeper and provide a more unique and sustainable colour.
Triple-smoked finish : the treatment that speeds up the aging process of wood's natural colours is repeated 3 times. Colours are more intense and deeper in the wood.
In the style of oldtime parquet, bevels can be hammered and are known as broken edges to give an unequal and irregular effect.
Engineered multiplis flooring : Noble wood glued onto a multiply wood base of 6 layers of real wood. The main advantage of engineered wood flooring is its dimensional stability: the cross-ply construction means the wood is largely unaffected by swelling and does not warp significantly.
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
