What other differences are there in parquet?
Oak, walnut or beech, plank or ship's floor: The appearance is one of the most important criteria for choosing the right floor. After all, the floor is a long-term investment in your home. The room effect results from several characteristics of the floor: the type of wood defines the colour, the surface the structure. Whether the room appearance is more calm or rustic is determined by the grading. And last but not least, the size of the individual planks has a decisive influence on whether the room appears larger or smaller.
The large number of variants in the range is also created by the so-called grading. The wood of the tree has different structures, with more and less knots. This wood is "pre-sorted" into groups. The range extends from harmonious to lively. Harmonious pre-finished parquet looks very elegant because of its calm grain and the few knots. In a plank with a lively grading, the natural inclusions, spindles and grains of the different wood species are more visible. This is characterised, for example, by a greater number of knots and cracks. The feet clearly feel the natural character of the wood.
