Kitchen flooring has come a long way since the days of linoleum. Choosing the correct floor that will be durable and attractive is a big decision and walking through showrooms can be overwhelming. Here is a quick guide of great options to make shopping easier.
Hardwood - This classic, beautiful option will keep your kitchen floor from looking dated over time. Hardwood flooring is available in many different stains, colors and sizes, making it perfect for almost any home.
Laminate - Laminate flooring is a low-cost alternative to hardwoods and can produce more durable results. Laminates can be made to mimic almost any flooring material, are easy to clean, and are easy to patch if damaged.
Stone or Tile - These are excellent choices for heavily trafficked areas due to their durability. Ceramic tiles are available in a wide variety of colors and patterns to best suit your home.
Polished Concrete - This type of flooring provides an industrial look. Concrete is non-porous and easy to maintain. Concrete also stays cool even when the weather is warm, making it ideal for locations with hot climates.
Cork - Cork is an excellent choice for kitchen floors because it is soft, which provides comfort underfoot. It is also shock absorbent, causing it to reduce noise as well as reduce the likelihood that dropped glasses or plates will break.
