Parquet is a type of wood flooring made by arranging small slats of wood in distinct, repeating patterns. While traditional parquet floors were installed one piece at a time, most modern parquet comes in tile form in which the wood slats are bonded to a backing material. Parquet tile flooring is installed by gluing, nailing, or stapling the tiles to the subfloor. Because the parquet strips are hardwood, parquet flooring is similar in look and performance to traditional solid-hardwood strip flooring.
