Top choices for kitchen flooring

Choosing the right type of flooring for the kitchen is vital. Not only is the kitchen often the hub of the home, which means that it sees a lot more traffic than many other areas; it is also the room where we cook and wash, so the floor there can often be subjected to spills and scuffs. By choosing the right kind of flooring, homeowners can minimize the impact made by any of these little accidents, while also ensuring that their kitchen space looks great.

There are a lot of different choices. Everything from expensive hardwood flooring to affordable but attractive vinyl can be used to good effect in the kitchen, but it is a good idea to stick with a flooring material that will repel moisture rather than soak it in, which could ruin it.

Here are some of the best options for covering a kitchen floor:

Laminate

A popular choice because it is extremely versatile, laminate flooring comes in many different colours and styles, and looks almost exactly like hardwood flooring, without being as expensive. Laminate flooring is also water repellent and easy to install, which makes it perfect for any kitchen.

Concrete

Used less often, concrete is a great kitchen flooring solution because it is so durable. Although many people shy away from using it because they believe it to be drab and too aesthetically clinical, what they don’t realise is that concrete can be purchased in an array of different colours, and design features can be added to give it more personality. It will last a long time too.

Hardwood

Hardwood flooring is another good choice for the kitchen. While it costs more than some other options, the kitchen is well used and is often the place we receive guests, which means it is well worth spending extra on an attractive and durable flooring option like hardwood.

If you do choose to install hardwood flooring, it is a good idea to protect it with varnish. This will minimize the impact of spills, and ensure that the floor continues to look its best for years to come.

Vinyl

Vinyl is a hugely popular kitchen floor covering. Not only is it cheap and easy to install, but it comes in a wide range of effects and an array of colours. It is very easy to wipe up spills from vinyl, and water will not negatively impact upon it.
