Vinyl flooring in the kitchen
water resistant and shockproof

A strong and robust floor covering is required for the kitchen. From time to time, heavy pots and other objects may be dropped and grease and liquids may land on the floor. A floor that is moisture-resistant and robust is needed. In addition to that you should have to consider the abrasion, as you are "on the move" a lot in the kitchen and have to turn around. Tables or chairs are also moved and dragged around. Thanks to properties such as impact resistance and water resistance, vinyl flooring is perfect for use in the kitchen.

What should I bear in mind when installing vinyl flooring in the kitchen?

When installing vinyl flooring in the kitchen, it should be noted that the floor must "float". In practice, this means that the flooring must be laid around fixed fixtures - such as a fitted kitchen. This ensures that the floor does not curl. To do this, simply lay the flooring close to the feet of the fitted kitchen.

The planeo floors tolerate joint widths of up to 5 mm for tile joints. For thicker joints, you will need to level the joint.The first row of the flooring is pushed against the wall. After laying further rows, a gap of 5 mm to the wall must be left.
