Your DH is correct.

Yes, we have all through our downstairs except the kitchen. I love it.

I love the proper old fashioned stuff with small wooden tiles. Not so keen on the modern version that looks like big planks or even laminate. It just doesn't have that same warmth and texture and just looks like it has a lot of edges to start peeling.

I pretty much decided to buy our current house (1930s) because of its parquet flooring. It was the only original feature left and, although it is currently in a dreadful state, I think it will look fabulous when it has been sanded and polished. So I'm siding with your DH.

Always reminds me of a school hall. Or my grandparents house.

We ripped ours out. Wasn't original or anything, before anyone panics wink

I ❤ it.

Ours is ancient, has a lovely patina and fits with the house. It does have a few wobbly bits though and takes ages to polish.
