            What is open-plan flooring?

            Where can open-plan flooring be used?

            Open-plan flooring can connect different rooms, like your hallway and living space, or your kitchen and dining room. It can also be used across an entire floor. To extend your flooring into a utility room or bathroom, look for Aquablock technology which can withstand splashes and spills.
