The most popular floors chosen across Europe have been revealed as part of a report on parquet flooring and the results are surprising.
Ceramic floors are the most popular option, which can be explained by the hot weather in some European countries where the tiles help to keep homes slightly cooler.
In second and third place were wood and laminate floors, which fits in with the current trend for authentic wood as flooring.
Solid wood floors are seen as a great investment so many people will be buying them with the view to keep them for many, many years to come.
Although laminate is not a long term investment in the same way as solid wood floors are laminate floors provide a good value product which looks like hardwood but without the cost.
However, despite the great choices which are in the majority of homes, around 60% would like to change their floors.
This conclusion was found in the European Consumer Survey on Parquet, although it is unclear why so many Europeans would choose to change their floors.
One possibility is that the economic climate has caused many people to stick with flooring which they had anticipated being able to change.
