If, in the past, resin floors were only reserved for the industrial sector, the trend is that today resin also dresses the interior of our homes. Usable both in renovations and in new construction, it is a resistant and easy-to-maintain material that inevitably has many advantages to seduce. As solid as a tile, and pleasant to the touch as linoleum, here is everything you need to know about resin floors.
Why choose resin flooring?
Little knowledgeable owners tend to think of only two solutions when it comes to coating their floors: tiling or concrete. However, there is an alternative: resin. This material has proven itself, and everyone who tries it is delighted. Find out why.
The resin can be used anywhere in your home
Unlike parquet, which is only useful in the home, the resin can be laid both indoors and outdoors. Thus, it is perfectly suited for a family living room as for a garage or the contours of the garden pool. The colors being modifiable, it is possible to match it with the rest of the room.
A resistant and not very dirty material
The Resin Flooring is very resistant. Inside the house, you, therefore, do not risk having furniture marks as soon as an element of your house does not move for several months. Outside, the passage of a car or a van will not harm it.
In addition, the resin is very slightly dirty. It absorbs tasks more than it undergoes them. This saves you the hours spent trying to give new life to your soil and beautiful clarity in any season. Also, note that the resin allows for a slippery floor. On stairs, it is a guarantee of safety not to be overlooked, especially for the elderly or young children who can easily lose their balance.
Beautify your resin floor
The resin allows elegance or eccentricity. If you choose to have the work carried out by a company specialized in resin coating, it can take advantage of the flexibility of the resin to create original patterns. You can quite imagine in your garden a super rosette or in your interior two distinct colors to mark a sleeping area and an office area. Obviously, the rendering is to be discussed upon making contact so that during the installation, the employee can know your expectations perfectly.
A large choice in coatings
All coatings are not the same. Specialists in these coatings create materials, made from resin, incorporating natural stones such as marble or granite. This gives very elegant coatings that adapt everywhere.
Advantages of Resin floors:
Resin floors are uniform and have a modern appearance. Although they are often seen in shops and industrial buildings, they also adapt to almost any room in the house. Here is an overview of the pros and cons of resin floors based on five important criteria when choosing a floor covering.
Maintenance and hygiene
One of the biggest advantages of resin floors is that they are very easy to maintain. Since they are uniform, the dirt is easy to clean, as there are no joints. Think of all the dirt that gets stuck in tile or parquet floor joints and the dust that collects on carpets. You will never have this kind of problem with a resin floor.
Resin floors are just a few millimeters thick. If you want to renovate a floor, this is an interesting solution. Indeed, the resin can often be poured on an existing floor. The greater the thickness of a floor covering, the more difficult it will be to use this covering during a renovation. In this case, consider, for example, adapting the doors to the new floor. Another important advantage of resin floors: they are self-leveling, that is to say, that the liquid resin spreads over the entire surface where it is poured. This allows perfect flatness without having to level the ground afterward.
Resin floors have a lot of applications. They adapt as well to industrial environments as to private homes, in all rooms. It is even possible to lay a resin floor in the bathroom. Many people also choose liquid resin as a finish for bathroom walls, to create a harmonious and elegant look. Under certain conditions, you can even install a resin floor outside.
