Refinishing a Parquet Floor
January 9, 2004 11:10 AM Subscribe
Mrs MattR and myself have long wanted a hard wood floor to replace the carpet in our house...after some research and pricing, I decided to go for a light oak or beech coloured hardwood panel system - and discovered that an important aspect is the base.
On peeling back my carpet to check - I found a beautifully laid, but in bad condition Parquet floor...in very dark wood...now I'm torn, cover this up? Or use the floor which is the wrong colour?
Or is there a third way - someone tells me that parquet flooring can be bleached to different colours and reconditioned...anyone seen this done? Anyone had it done? Whats your experiences of parquet floors?
