Bolon floors are very durable as the warranty is 10 years and can be used both at home and in offices and commercial buildings. In my opinion, though the true beauty of pattern and material is revealed in large areas where you can see it from afar or from a higher level. The material can also be installed on walls and ceilings which gives designers complete freedom of imagination. On the website of Bolon you can see videos for installation and maintenance.
