What to Do with Parquet Floors?

Good Questions

Q: I am potentially moving forward on this place in a lovely vintage condo building. The floors though are huge square footage, and really don't think the vintage basket-weave type flooring (parquet?) is my style. Would love some feedback on how to upgrade or update these...stain? Completely gut and start over? Would love to make it economical, but something rock solid that will last since it's a purchase. Thank you so much in advance!
