PARQUET TO RENEW THE IMAGE OF THE KITCHEN

Although it is always better to install the floor before there are kitchen cabinets, the parquet can be laid even when the furniture is already there. This way you could renew the image of your kitchen, keeping the furniture but changing the floor, the handles and some visible accessories.

Experts advise to do it as follows: first, we can always vacuum or mop in the direction of the sheets of the deck. This prevents dust from accumulating in the grooves . Next, prepare a bucket of water with a little scrubbing detergent, better if it is neutral, until it makes a little foam. And we can now scrub, yes, with the mop well wrung out.

SLASH IT TO GIVE IT BACK ITS FIRST DAY LOOK

If you wonder how often it is convenient to stab the parquet (which consists of sanding and varnishing this type of floor to give it back the appearance of the first day), you should know that the noble part of wood of a floating parquet ranges between 3 and 4 mm in thickness. thickness. In the stabbing 1.5 mm are lowered. If it is a solid parquet there is no noble layer but the whole piece is made of wood. Stabbing is recommended every 8-10 years.

“Floating parquet is a wooden floor that can be solid or multilayer. The first is made entirely of hardwood and the second is made up of a high-density pressed wood backing and a top layer of hardwood. It is often confused with laminate flooring, but the latter is not a material in itself, but an installation system. It is also common to confuse it with laminate floors, since they imitate the pattern of wood, but they do not need the same care or maintenance tasks ”. Laura Tomás, Gabarró Hermanos Marketing Manager , explains what a parquet is that simple . Everything else is a wooden floor but it is not considered parquet.

So you see, yes, you can put parquet in the kitchen. Evaluate the pros and cons that we have given you and solve the dilemma. Of course, a parquet is a natural wood floor and as such it must be valued. But if you do not want to give up the appearance of wood, although with more comfort, then you can always resort to other types of materials such as porcelain imitation wood, laminates or synthetics.
