Parquet is by far the most appealing type of flooring!
Finished the small tile 70s, the floor appears in our interiors and warms the atmosphere … Today there is an infinite variety of flooring style and suddenly, when we must choose we no longer know where to give the floor. head! I tried to summarize what it is and to refer you if you are in project of renovation …
If you follow me on Instagram , you may have seen that we found our new apartment and are more than happy! A nice apartment with a large terrace where everything is to think, the dream would you say to me! But it requires to dig your head mine nothing;) And everything starts with the ground … Let’s go around the different variants of parquet …
Which size to choose?
Wide battens against wide narrow … Who win? Ten years ago I would have told you slats wide but today the more the blades are narrow better! Why, I speak only of style and trends, narrow slats refer to the Scandinavian style that we still love as much and especially reflect a more natural side of the floor.
What color ?
Again, for the color of the floor there is a multitude of choices. History of not getting tired and get an airy atmosphere in your interior, I suggest clear shades like here, the chain blond or light gray bleached. My favorite is the white parquet !! I am a fan fan fan.
And if I already have parquet? You can give it a second life! You can relook a parquet without stripping with Sublim Wood, the easy renovation product of the Mauler brand. If you were tired of your floor too dark, you do not have to change it;)
Laminate or raw?
Great question! What is important to know? The plain parquet obviously does not have the same price as a laminate parquet. Count about 50 € per m2 against 15 € for laminate. The crude has several disadvantages, its price, but also the fact that it can not be installed in damp rooms and the maintenance it requires, etc., for all these reasons the laminate seems to be a good solution. Nevertheless at the level of the aspect nothing will replace a beautiful rough floor but it is sometimes very well imitated so you can darken;)
And for my health?
We spend more than 3/4 of our time in confined spaces and indoor air can be up to 10 times more polluted than outdoor air, because of formaldehyde, invisible and highly volatile gas classified as carcinogenic by WHO . The brand Mauler offers to clean the indoor air with a revolutionary floor cleaner , smart!
