Parquet - Should I refinish? What color?
I just bought a short sale house and after pulling up the 80's "shag" style carpet I found parquet flooring underneath. Seemed (at one time) to be decent quality, 1 inch thick red oak individually laid strips...the floor needs some repair and refinishing...is it worth the effort to keep the floors original and refinish? Does anyone have any advise on the process and/or stain colors to use? Replacing will be expensive and I'd rather put the $$$ elsewhere. Thanks!
