The Hardwood Floor Through The Time


The Hardwood Floors began to use in the seventeenth century and often as cutting boards. In the 1980s there was the emergence of pre-finished Hardwood Floors turning towards the classic and clean look of Hardwood planks. Due to the way pre-finished Hardwood planks were constructing, and chipped edges were common.

Before the mid-nineteenth century, there were few finished Hardwood Floors; the popular one was parquet finishing, it is the method to place pieces of hardwood in geometric patterns and place the portions on the sub-floor with small nails. Decorative Hardwood Floors began to use before the parquet finishing.
