The floor covering
Coating mainly appreciated for its ease of maintenance, kitchen tiling has been regaining its former glory for some time now. The models of different shapes, sizes, colors, patterns and renderings (matt, glossy) open up the field of possibilities in terms of decoration. The must-have is all the same to combine two materials for the floor of the kitchen : tiles and wood, polished concrete and wood, vinyl floor and tiles.

QUARTZ AND WOOD
Quartz has established itself in our kitchens due to its good resistance and ease of maintenance. Its choice of color makes it an ideal element for design enthusiasts.
