Updating Parquetry Floors
If you have an older parquetry floor it may be an orange colour or out of date style. The parquetry style of flooring that was popular in 1960s and 1970s homes is just not what homeowners are looking for today. Whether you are wanting to remove and revamp the flooring for you and your family or are looking to sell there any many ways that older parquetry flooring can be updated, giving your home a great modern look at a cost effective price.
Thinner woods used in parquetry are not as desirable as thicker styles now, so if your parquetry is on the thinner side consider that there are only a limited number of times you can sand it down. If there is enough wood left, sanding down the flooring to get rid of orange and dated colours and staining the floor an ebony colour. This is a good neutral tone and it can make your room appear really spacious. This also makes the older style less noticeable.
