The kitchen is often described as the heart of the home, but it’s amazing how often the kitchen is overlooked when picking the floors for your home. Home owners usually focus in nice cabinets and countertops, but the floors are completely forgotten, and they can add to the whole combo to not only look stunning, but also to add value to your home.
However, looks are not the only thing to look for. Nice kitchen floors must withstand spills, high traffic, spills and a lot more. These floors are probably the most important ones in any home other than bathrooms, for those reasons.
So, what are the best flooring options for your kitchen? Let’s see!
Durable and easy-to-clean, tile is a great choice that comes in various sizes and styles. In fact, you can have nearly any look you want, ranging from stone-look to wood-look, thanks to inkjet technology. Another feature we love about tile is its water-resistant nature. Porcelain tile is waterproof, and ceramic is water-resistant meaning you won’t have to worry about all too common spills in your kitchen.
If you’re searching for a natural material with timeless beauty, look no further than stone. Stone flooring is easy to maintain and it’s extremely durable. The beauty of stone is that no two pieces are ever the same, which creates a uniqueness in your flooring that you won’t get with other products. And, because it’s naturally formed, stone features a variety of colors, movement, and veining.
Hardwood is a popular flooring choice for kitchens because of its high-quality look. It adds warmth and richness to a room. Not to mention, hardwood is ageless and increases the value of your home. It’s a material that’s easy to maintain and clean, and it has long-term durability.
Worried about cooking spills in your kitchen? With water-resistant flooring, you get the beauty of wood-look floors (and now even real hardwood with AquaGuard Engineered Water-Resistant Wood) with the power to resist common spills and splashes. Water-resistant floors can also bet wet mopped meaning you can easily clean everyday messes in your kitchen.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury Vinyl Flooring looks and feels like real hardwood, but it’s 100% waterproof. It’s also dent-resistant so you don’t have to worry about utensils dropping or chairs scratching your kitchen floor! It comes with a pre-attached natural cork underlayment, which allows for a quieter, warmer floor in a busier part of your home.
So, surprisingly enough, you have 3 great options other than the classic tile and stone duo. Hardwood, Water-Resistant or Luxury Vinyl are as reliable as tile and stone.
