I don’t know if your feet are on the ground or you usually hover a few centimetres above it, but a good floor is always useful. Anyway, not only to walk;). Demolition continues in the apartment for rent, but this does not prevent the designer from looking for suitable finishing materials.
It seems that we usually choose wooden floors or laminate floor panels, so it’s worth knowing a little more about them. Wooden is certainly a more expensive and more luxurious solution, but are they completely flawless? Two- and three-layer wooden floors dominate the market. The construction of this covering consists of layers of wood arranged perpendicular to each other. The middle part is the thickest, while the bottom part – the so-called backpressure, usually has the same thickness as the outer one we walk on. The accepted standard for thickness around the world is 13-15mm, but there are of course deviations. If the topic interests you deeper.
