Walnut Parquet Flooring
Natural Tones Unique Warmth
Walnut parquet flooring is made from walnut hardwood which is native to America, Europe and Asia. The timber is used for furniture and high-end cabinets which provides durability, hardness, and strength without being excessively heavy. Walnut wood displays straight grain found in the trunk and is light to dark brown in colours with intense reddish tones. Although it is a softer species of hardwood parquet, Walnut has beautiful natural colours and tones that hide dents and stains well.
Why install walnut parquet flooring?
Walnut parquet floor exudes a very unique warmth that grabs attention in any interior setting. This type of flooring is of high quality, very attractive and a pocket-friendly alternative. Although engineered walnut floors are cheaper, they do not add as much value to rooms as solid pre-treated or unstained walnut floors.
Precaution and Maintenance
To give it a longer shelf life, the floor should be cleaned to remove dirt, molds and dry wet patches on the floor. Walnut floors can be maintained by regular waxing and sealing. Adding a thin wax layer to the hardwood brings back the shine to a dull floor and restores its natural look. It is important to limit exposure of direct sunlight to prevent premature darkening of the colour tone.
Areas Suitable for Walnut Flooring
The floor is best suited for places with minimal foot traffic to avoid frequent damages. In a residential home, a walnut parquet flooring can be used in washrooms, corridors, kitchens and bedrooms. In commercial venues, the floors can be installed in private offices, waiting rooms, and kitchens with minimal staff.
Benefits of Walnut Parquet Floor
Walnut is considered an exotic flooring option due to its wide variety of natural tones and impressive visual appeal. It is extremely durable and safe to mop without worrying about rotting and warping. Being a strong wood, walnut is resistant to insects, chipping and other damage.
It may be expensive than other hardwood choices but walnut has a longer shelf life making it ultimately valuable for any home.
In case a homeowner wants to blend a different colour with the walnut floor colour, walnut is versatile and receptive to staining - making it a good choice.
