i am considering the above for my kitchen but cant decide, tiles i
think are better quality and feel more long term/solid. laminate
probably easier to lay but not as long lasting.
has anyone experience of both of these floorings for a kitchen? the
heating pipes run under the floor so it shouldnt get too cold. its
only a small kitchen and i have just taken up the old ceramic tiles,
leaving a pretty even surface of concrete, black tar like adhesive and
some old thin vinyl style tiles (probs there when the flat was
built-30-or so years ago)
i only found one small area where the concrete was loose and this is
where heating or water pipes had been installed and is right near a
wall where there will be units so i guess i could either leave it or
fill it in with some sort of cement(?).
once i've cleared the rubble and dustpan/brushed it all (im guessing i
dont need to worry too much about dust so not planing to hoover). then
what do i do next to prepare. ive heard self leveling isnt very good.
as i did with the walls should i use pva?
appreciate the help and advice guys, i'm finding you lot more helpful
than the diy manual!
