Actually, the choice of wood flooring is not only divided by color. Wooden floors are divided based on constituent material. You can find other types of wooden floor, such as solid wood flooring, laminate flooring, and engineering wood.

 

Solid wood

 

As suggested name, it is made from solid wood species are relatively expensive piece of wood. Unfortunately, although able to provide its own prestige value, solid wood flooring is not very suitable for tropical areas with high humidity levels.

 

In addition, solid wood flooring also has the possibility to expand and contract. This type of flooring is generally produced with a thickness of 10 mm to 18 mm. After being used for some time, you can sandpaper back.

Solid wood available with and without finishing. However, it can not be installed in the basement and can not be installed right on top of the concrete. So, if you want it, you should contact a professional to install this type of floor.

 

Engineering wood

 

Engineering wood using wood that has been treated with a multi-layer technology. This type is commonly referred to as parquet engineer. This type of wood is relatively resistant to shrinkage and bending, and are generally available with a thickness of 15 millimeters.

 

Engineered wood flooring you can use in the basement and attached directly to the concrete. Unfortunately, most of this type of flooring can not be re-finishing. Others may once or twice in re-finishing.

 

Laminate flooring

 

Laminated flooring is often also known as imitation wood. It is made from wood pulp pressed together with glue and paper decor with patterned laminated wood. Same with solid wood, this type of floor covering is also not suitable in environments with high humidity.

 

For laminate flooring, flooring is much cheaper than other types of wood flooring. You can put it in the basement or upstairs. However, unlike other types of wood, the type of wood will sound hollow and did not seem genuine.

Creative and Highly Functional 65 Sqm Office Space

Researched by Spacio Furniture & Interiors Team

spacio-architectes-Hypernuit-8

The 65 square meter space is well-lit with a simple geometry. The commission consisted in fitting-out a working area including five identical desks, a common meeting room and shared facilities.

The refurbishment project had to reflect the dynamic and innovative spirit of the agency in a serene and contemporary space. It also had to include a maximum of shelving for storage, the creation of exhibition walls for the display of photography shows. The schedule for the building works was very tight. h2o architects created for these offices a sort of indoor landscape thanks to a play with blocks. These volumes of varied form and size constitute the living space for each person working there. Their combination help compose the furniture, the desks, the separation and exhibition walls, the coffers etc.
