Masonry work is a term that you might come across when doing your renovation or in the renovation contract. Masonry is work that involved concrete such as laying of floor and wall tiles.
Floor & wall tiles – Kitchen is one area of the house that experiences heavy foot traffic and regular spills. Tiles are one of the most durable forms of flooring available and it’s easy to clean. It’s also water-resistant which makes it a good choice for areas that might get wet.
Kitchen cabinet base – It is a concrete base which your kitchen cabinet sits on. Its primary purpose is to AVOID WATER from SEEPING UNDER the CABINET due to washing or cleaning of floor.
Bottom kitchen cabinet has a depth of 600mm from the wall to the front of the cabinet, kitchen cabinet base usually done to a depth of 550mm from the wall. This small space allows your toes to slip in and have a more comfortable position preparation for your stuff.
Fridge base & Washing machine base – Both serve the same purpose as the kitchen cabinet. It elevates the fridge and washing machine so that water won’t be stagnant under the appliances and causes RUST UNDERNEATH.
Depending on how frequent and how you wash your kitchen floor, if a simple cleaning and mopping are sufficed, then the concrete base is not necessary.
