Q: Is it possible to paint parquet flooring as an alternative to replacement?
A: I think you can paint about anything, but I am not sure why you would opt to paint the parquet rather than having it stained and finished, for example. The only concern I might have is that there would be no way for the floor to “breath”. If moisture or excess humidity is not a problem, I wouldn’t expect a negative result. If the alternative is replacing the floor, there seems little to lose except a few gallons of paint if it doesn’t work.
