Parquet - real wood instead of decorative layer

They are far superior to laminate and wood parquet.

Due to the high elasticity, cork does not tend to be damaged when hard objects fall on it. The floor covering is offered as ready-made parquet and for gluing. Cork is the ideal covering for children's rooms. Like parquet, it is only resistant to moisture to a limited extent.
