Found Parquet floors under carpet
esmelcerNovember 29, 2013
We found old parquet underneath carpeting in a study when preparing to put in hardwood. Should I take out the parquet and put in the new hardwood to match nearby rooms as intended or leave the parquet and have it refinished? Is this style of 1 inch parquet strips coming back? At some time I was going to replace the slate foyer, but didn't intend to do it now. If I leave parquet it means seeing three types of flooring when you enter the front door. Slate foyer, parquet in study to the right, and dark hardwood in dining room to the left and family room straight ahead beyond foyer. Thoughts???
