Parquet Industry Looking Up
Things are looking up for the parquet flooring industry after new figures have revealed production has increased by a noticeable degree over the course of the last 18 months. The parquet industry has previously spent a lot of time and money in the development of the flooring, only to see the global financial recession cause production to drop significantly despite all of their best efforts. Now however, things appear to be going back in the other direction at last, with figures from 2010 showing that production has risen by 4% over the figures recorded in the previous year. While a 4% rise may not seem like a great deal, given that production had dropped by 5% for two years in a row in 2008 and 2009, any improvement certainly appears to be a cause for celebration, with those in the industry hoping that they have turned a corner and that the only way is up for parquet flooring from here on in.
Parquet flooring has become reasonably popular with people who like the idea of having a wood floor in their home, not least because it tends to be more durable than other types of flooring, making wood floor repair something most would not have to think about for several decades. These are people who would also like something a little more imaginative than the norm in their home. Parquet flooring, which creates a patterned affect using wooden blocks, allows for the traditional quality and durability of wood floors with a little extra – and individual – style.
