Criteria for choosing imitation parquet tiles

This is especially true for the kitchen, which is a room that is exposed to our many comings and goings and to humidity. You should also take into account its resistance to chemicals and aggressive products and its ability to withstand corrosion. Also check its width to see if you can install it in your large rooms. Finally, don’t forget to look at its design and whether it gives an effect that seems to enlarge the room (if you are looking for that).
