Getting overwhelmed by the plethora of options for your kitchen floor? There are so many factors and options to take into consideration when contemplating your next kitchen remodel. From natural flooring to engineered products, there are benefits to each type of flooring, but it’s up to you to decide which one is the best fit for your home and kitchen needs. Here are just a few options to whet your appetite.
The epitome of beauty in a kitchen is the look of natural stone. It’s classic and trendy and comes in multiple forms, including limestone, travertine, granite or slate. Stone is durable and requires little maintenance, so it’s great for heavy use. However, it can trap dirt and peel or scratch over time. It’s also one of the more costly options for flooring.
The customizability of ceramic tile can transform your kitchen into a classic or vintage aesthetic or a funky modern look. Ceramic tile comes in a variety of patterns, colors, textures, shapes, and sizes, plus it’s affordable! Tile is also spill-resistant and easy to clean making it ideal for kitchen flooring and is quick to install. However, tile can be cold and slippery when it’s wet; an area rug is an easy remedy to that. If you have grouting between tiles, that requires some maintenance.
A great cost-effective option for your custom kitchen, especially if you love the look of hardwood or tile, is laminate flooring. It’s easy to install and maintain and is fairly durable for high-traffic kitchens but needs to be replaced when it starts to show its age. Unlike traditional hardwood that you can refinish, laminate floors need to be replaced entirely.
Once regarded as just for basements, garages, and other utilitarian spaces, concrete floors have come a long way as far as aesthetic appeal. Concrete floors are virtually indestructible and can serve as a great subfloor if you ever want to install a different type of floor, or if you sell your house. Unfortunately, it’s a difficult material to work with, so professional installation is necessary for a great floor. If you want your floor stained, stamped, or etched with a custom design, it could cost you extra money as well.
