ikea platta floor decking

This floor decking is a perfect solution to a mini home renovation, well, without the actual renovation. From IKEA, the Platta Floor Decking made of solid acacia and durable hardwood is highly suitable for outdoor, and even indoor use. Lay over tired concrete or grass for an instant make-over. Get creative and use indoors as a cool alternative to a bath mat. Just as a note though, wood contains tannic acid which, after a time, can leak out and discolor the sub-floor. Never lay wooden decking on a surface where it would matter if this happened. Remember to treat the furniture with oil at regular intervals in order to protect and retain the wood. Make sure that it is clean and dry before being re-oiled. If treated properly, it can stay outdoors and look beautiful all year round.
