Floors : Timber & Parquet

A number of companies stock a variety of wood flooring. Parquet or board can be found in a variety of woods such as native or European traditional oak or elm, pine etc. Where sourcing tropical hardwoods, care should be taken in ensure that the woods are certified as from sustainable locations, as mismanagement is adding to climate change and the extinction of species.
