Owing to aesthetic looks and easy maintenance, parqueting is growing most popular for flooring options. “Laminate parquets are easy to assemble ans clean. This is the reason why people opt for laminate parqueting,” said Bimal Agrawal, Director at Ebony Furnishing. Appropriate for living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, corridors and staircases, parqueting has become a popular option for city dwellers to beautify their living space.
Made up of compressed wood dust, laminate parquets are suitable for all rooms except the kitchen and bathroom areas. Prices start from Rs 150 to Rs 450 per sq ft and come with three to 20 year warranty periods. They come in 8 mm to 12 mm thickness and can be easily transferred. Reportedly, 8 mm parquet slabs are more popular than 12 mm. These products are imported from India, China, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Malaysia.
Ebony Furnishing also offers wooden parqueting from the Nepali brand Nemo Parquet. “Wooden parqueting is double the price of laminate parqueting. This is the main reason why the demand for wooden parquets is low,” said Agrawal. Made up of sisau wood, these wooden parquets come with a 50 year warranty, however, they need to be polished every year for a fresh look. “For customers who want inexpensive products at affordable prices, we have PVC parqueting that looks like laminate flooring,” he added. Being water resistant, PVC parqueting is perfect for living and dining areas. These PVC parquets come in 7 inch width and 39 inch length with 2 mm and 3 mm thickness. They cost Rs 160 to Rs 175 per sq ft.
PVC tiles are substitutes to tiles that come in 8X8 inch and 12X12 inch sizes. He said that being water and sound proof these flooring options are appropriate for dining rooms, kitchens and corridors. PVC tiles are pasted on the smooth surface of floors with glue.
Ebony imports tile carpets from France that come in 20X20 inch. Available in six designs, these tile carpets costs Rs 175 per sq ft. “Unique design, transferable and durable, these tile carpets are suitable for living rooms and bedrooms,” he said, adding that unlike other whole carpets one can replace certain portions of the carpet easily if damaged.
“The demand for laminate flooring is ever growing,” said Gaurav Panday, Chief of Balterio at Navin Distributors, adding, “Being scratch proof, they imitate real wood or tiles and are easy to maintain. That is the reason why most customers opt for laminate flooring.” He said that the company offers more than 50 colour options on Balterio laminate flooring from Belgium.
Citing that Balterio is more expensive than other brands, Panday said, “It is worth the investment in a branded product for its quality and durability.” According to him, they provide 20 to 25 years of warranty on their products with prompt customer care service. The price of their product starts at Rs 160 to Rs 430 per sq ft depending upon quality, texture and grooving system. He said that laminate flooring is used for all rooms except the kitchen where there could be water movement.
