It's getting time to re-floor the back of the house. It will only be for 2 bedrooms & a hallway, about 450 sq ft, in a 1k sq ft basement condo. Carpet was back there originally (and was gross) so we installed some temporary resilient vinyl planks last year with some heavy duty glue.

Question is: Is parquet still a good choice? We've enjoyed the stuff in the living/dining rooms, but would it be looked at with disdain by others? I think I might like it checkered like this sample:
