See the unbelievable difference new kitchen floors can make in your remodeling project
As we approach this final detail of your kitchen remodeling project, let’s review what’s important to look for in kitchen flooring. As you take a look at your flooring options, you’ll want to keep a few things in mind, namely; use, durability, and the style. Let’s take a look at some of the kitchen flooring types available today:
Hardwood. This choice of flooring creates a warm atmosphere and is commonly found in the traditional kitchen. Hardwood floors are beautiful and provide a sturdy surface for the homeowner. In addition to the good looks, clean up is a breeze! Popular hardwood types range from oak, ash, cherry, and walnut.
Laminate. If you are searching for a cost-effective choice for your kitchen flooring, laminate may be it. Although it’s not as sought after as its neighbors, marble and hardwood, it can be created to imitate their looks and it is a low maintenance, long lasting alternative. The laminate flooring is made of several different layers and installation is relatively easy because it can be placed over existing floors.
Marble is a unique flooring choice because of its durability and great looks. Marble tends to be on the higher end for price, but it does have some minor drawbacks because of its natural porous properties, it can be vulnerable to staining. A marble floor can also be quite slippery when wet which is why we recommend selecting the proper finish, such as tumbled, that helps create traction on the floor.
Vinyl. This happens to be another affordable yet great looking candidate for your kitchen floor. Some of vinyl’s great properties include durability, resistance to moisture and stains, and ease of installation. Vinyl can be customized to the look that you want to achieve like stone, wood, or even marble.
Ceramic Tile is a well suited choice for kitchen flooring especially with high traffic areas that are exposed to water and other elements. When it comes to selecting the right ceramic tile for your kitchen, you’ll need to determine the size, color, shape, and finish so that it aligns with the space’s design and style.
Stone Tile. This type of tile comes in many different textures and colors. Depending on your style, you can find tiles of the traditional, contemporary, or rustic variety. Tile floors are easy to maintain and clean, making them a great choice for long term durability. If you end up choosing stone tile for your floors, you’ll want to make sure they are sealed to be moisture resistant.
