"Classic wood flooring consists of wooden planks wider than 10 cm and longer than 1 m. For parquet, we use smaller pieces of wood arranged in different patterns to make the floor more attractive and decorative.

Geometric and angular shapes are very popular."

"If your comparing hardwood flooring then Hardwood planks are long and thin planks of flooring, whereas parquet blocks are much smaller and uniform in size."
