Types of Flooring

In a house there are several different room functions, such as; living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and terrace. Well, to get a comfortable home, you should be careful in choosing the material floor of each room because each type of material has a different character.

Flooring has a decisive effect on the overall impression created by rooms, the quality of accommodation and maintenance costs.

Here are some examples of floor types:

  1. Natural stones floors: Limestone, slate or sandstone slabs can be laid rough hewn, in natural state, or with some or all edges cut smooth or polished ⟶ ① – ②. The surfaces of sawn tiles, limestone (marble), sandstone and all igneous rocks can be finished in any manner desired. They can be laid in a bed of mortar or glued with adhesive to the floor sub-layer.natural stones floors type

  3. Ceramic floor tiles: Stoneware, floor, mosaic and sintered tiles are shapes of coloured clay which are sintered in the burning process, so that they absorb hardly any water. They are, therefore, resistant to frost, have some resistance to acids and high resistance to mechanical wear, though they are not always oil resistant.
  4. Parquet flooring is made from wood in the form of parquet stripes, tiles, blocks or boards ⟶ ⑨ – ⑫. The upper layer of the finished parquet elements consists of oak or other parquet wood, in three different styles. Pine or spruce are used for floor boarding. Tongue and groove planks are made from Scandinavian pine/spruce, American red pine, pitch pine.parquet floors type
