modern kitchen and dining area


A traditional raised floor provides an elevated structural floor above a solid substrate for creating a hidden void for the passage of mechanical and electrical services. Modern raised floor designs are not only functional, providing convenient storage spaces and hiding beds, but very decorative and stylish also.

Raised floor pedestal structures are one of modern interior design trends that make rooms look unique and contemporary. Traditional raised floor structures are widely used in modern office buildings, IT data centers and computer rooms where there is a requirement to route mechanical services and electrical cables. Decorative raised floor designs are excellent for defining zones and adding original accents to interior design.

Raised floor designs vary in styles and height, from 2 inches (51 mm) to 4 feet (1,200 mm), adjusting interiors to their functions. Residential raised floor pedestal structures lift floor up to 10 inches (250 mm), dividing rooms on zones and balancing rooms proportions for creating pleasant, comfortable and modern interior design.
