Is wood flooring too delicate? Can I lay it in the bathroom and in the kitchen? Is it difficult to maintain? Today we discover the whole truth, debunking some clichés.
Let’s answer some common questions on wood flooring
1) «I cannot lay the wood floor as I have underfloor heating.» Of course, you can!
As we already stated in one of our articles, wood floor and underfloor heating get along well. Wood, in fact, radiates heat like any other type of flooring. Most floors are suitable for installation even on floors with underfloor heating. Experience the wonderful feeling of walking barefoot on our floors!
2) «Solid wood is more valuable than multi-layer wood floor.» Not true!
Solid wood is composed of single-layer small boards or planks. It is certainly enduring and can undergo several sanding operations. However, it is also easily subject to natural wood variations caused by temperature and humidity. The multi-layered wood floor, on the other hand, is more stable and deforms more difficult than atmospheric variations. Furthermore, it reduces shutter speeds a lot. Prices are now equivalent.

More and more often, bathrooms and kitchens now have wood floor. The natural beauty of wood is irresistible in all home environments. Obviously, the most water-resistant wood species should be taken into account, such as Doussiè, Iroko and Teak.
