What is Parquet Engineered Wood Flooring?
Parquet is a type of decorative flooring that was first used to signify status and grandeur amongst the aristocrats of 17th-century Europe. Unlike standard hardwood floorboards, cut into long planks and arranged side-by-side, parquet flooring is instead cut into short ‘battens’ and arranged in a variety of geometric patterns.
Our range of parquet flooring differs from that of the 1600s, in that it is made using engineered wood. We start by layering slim cuts of birch, pine, poplar, or spruce ply and then top it off with a surface layer of oak or walnut, which we then finish with precision bevelling and low-VOC lacquer, which enhances and preserves the wood.

The Benefits of Parquet Engineered Wood Flooring
Underfloor Heating Safe
Thanks to its engineered wooden base, our entire range of parquet flooring can be laid safely over most modern underfloor heating systems, such as electrical and hot-water circuits.
It is natural for wooden flooring, engineered or otherwise, to fluctuate in size due to changing temperatures and moisture. This is especially true when installed over underfloor heating systems of any kind. But engineered wood flooring stands above the rest with its resistance to this kind of swelling, due to the robustness of its layered composition.
Whether your property is a period snapshot or a glimpse into a modern future, our range of parquet engineered wood flooring can slot in seamlessly with your aesthetic. We have combined historical design with the refinement of today, which has resulted in a range of engineered wood flooring that is highly adaptive and ultimately timeless.
Tongue & Groove Fittings
The mosaic arrangements of traditional parquet flooring is understandably a specialist craft, which is what has made it so desirable, and so inaccessible, across the centuries. At V4 we have simplified the installation process using tongue & groove fittings, which allow for easy and secure fitting across all subfloors.
Parquet flooring relies on precise lines and mathematical arrangements in order to be fully impactful, and our tongue & groove edges ensure the perfect finish time and time again.
Finished with UV Oil
UV Oil provides a natural and tactile surface that accentuates the natural grain of the wood and properly embodies its history, whilst providing lasting stain and water resistance.
CARE FOR UV-OILED FLOORING IN-DEPTH MAINTENANCE GUIDES
We take the time to carefully bevel the edges of our parquet blocks, which will prevent future splintering and damage due to sharp edges that catch.
With precision 4-point bevelling, we ensure your finished parquet engineered wood flooring looks and feels seamless.
Reasons to Choose V4 Wood Flooring
Our 35-Year Guarantee
We know our parquet flooring will stand the test of time. We trust our high-quality timber and our time-honoured manufacturing methods completely, which is why we offer an open-handed 35-year guarantee on all domestic installations.
Our Dedication to Sustainability
Our parquet engineered wood flooring has received an FSC© certificate, which means all the timber used, from our European oak to our American walnut has been sourced from managed woodlands that meet the standards of The Forest Stewardship Council.
For every tree we harvest to make our parquet flooring, several more saplings are planted in its place. Our construction methods also waste much less than traditional hardwood manufacturing, which requires average cuts of up to 14 and 22 mm. Engineered wood is only required to be 2 to 6 mm thick, with the main bulk coming from the layered, plywood base. This is a 60% increase in yield per tree used.
