The Essentials Of Installing Cork Floor Tiles In Your Kitchen


 
Home Improvement
The kitchen is just as an important room as the living room and the bedroom and having its floor well maintained is an important factor to ensure it is always comfortable, clean and attractive. Cork floor tiles are an amicable solution that can deliver desirable results when it comes to cork flooring kitchen. However, it’s important to note that installation of a floor that is cork floating under the cabinetry is not a good thing to do. The option of cork flooring is not only an ecofriendly alternative but also an attractive and unique design for this purpose. How then does one proceed in the installation of cork floor tiles?

Installation of cork tiles for your kitchen will usually require the application of two polyurethane water based coats, which allow the floor to be sealed against possible water damage. However, in the event of huge water damage concern cork tiles can be used instead. Installation of cork floor tiles requires one to have some tools at their disposal, which include a tapping block, rubber mallet, a tape measure and a pencil, a crowbar, a saw and an adhesive tape. It’s expected that the installation step comes after all decorations work. Before starting off the sub flow should be vacuumed or swept clean and ensured it is dry and flat. Installation on a concrete floor should come at least thirty days after the concrete has been completed.

Installation will normally proceed by the planks lengthwise in line with the sunlight direction. Color consistency and the harmony should be given consideration by plank relocation for managing abrupt patterns. Installation on a concrete floor will require a moisture barrier such as polyurethane sheeting. Determining the plank number that will be adequate for floor covering will require measuring the room and dividing it by the plank width. A partial board should be started with in the event that 2.5 inches measure is left as a remnant on the long wall to allow for stabilization. An expansion gap of 10mm should be spared between walls and the flooring or any other obstacles preferably using spacers. Staggering planks is essential for reduction of seams visual appearance. The first row is completed by having planks angled together one after another.

The second row begins by insertion of the next plank’s tongue ridge into the first groove preferably at an angle of 20- 300 with the floor. Use your hands to press downwards until the plank clicks in. a rubber mallet and a tapping block can be used for straightening rows or tightening the seams while avoiding damaging blows to the flooring. On reaching the end a mallet and crowbar can be utilized in tapping the last piece into position. Fixing subsequent rows proceeds in the same manner. It’s advisable to ensure the expansion gap is uniform along the walls which can be ensured by taking measurements at the room’s two wall ends. Measuring accurately is one of the guiding principles to ensure accuracy of the results when flooring with cork floor tiles. Now that you have installed cork floor tiles for your kitchen knowing its cons are just as good as the pros.
