If the environment in which you have decided to create a new kitchen has a worn floor, you have two choices:
- Replace it with a new floor
- Overlap a new floor over the ruined one.
This last choice is certainly the fastest and most economical, as it avoids the excessive waste disposal costs. Keep in mind that it is feasible only if you leave the kitchen in the place where it was the previous one and you don’t have to remake tracks and installations in the floor. If you decide to overlap the flooring and want to create a rustic environment, the best choice is the terracotta floor . You could also opt for the porcelain stoneware that imitates marble in the grain or wood. You can have the parquet effect by choosing it from various shades with the comfort and strength of porcelain.
Renovation of the kitchen walls
: splashes, paint or tiles?
In the last few years the choice to replace the paint with tiles has been widely used . These are washable paints that with a damp cloth return shining in an instant. The problem of encrustations and food splashes in the tile joints is avoided. Obviously when this paint is applied, the surface must be cleaned of crumbling plaster, finished with stucco and finally painted. We recommend up to three hands with the chosen color in one direction only. Perfect insulating effect.
If you decide to use the tiles we at Case Restructuring offer you the delicious cement tiles . They are resistant and very popular. You can choose those that use cement in the alloy as in the ancient nineteenth-century technique, or porcelain that imitates the designs. The graphic design of the cement tiles will give your kitchen a unique and unforgettable vintage effect.
The splashback is a panel of the same material as the worktop (wood, granite, or aluminum) which is sometimes preferred over the use of the tile in the total length. It is only next to the stove and the sink. We recommend it in homes where little is cooked, or in kitchens placed in living rooms, where a row of tiles would not be harmonious to see because they do not fit in with sofas and the rest of the furniture. For those who own an island, there are hi-tech sketches made with aluminum and glass that avoid the problem.
