We are often asked “What type of flooring should you use for your kitchen remodel?”
Your kitchen is the powerhouse of your home. You may find yourself spending a lot of time standing and cooking for the family. Your kitchen floor should provide comfort to the feet and back, and also, it should add to the aesthetic value. Listed here are some of the stylish kitchen flooring types you should use to give this space a user-oriented functionality and pleasing ambiance.
Luxury vinyl flooring
Vinyl flooring is available in a wide assortment of styles and colors. Thus, there is a vinyl flooring for every kind of preference. The vinyl flooring is liked because of its water-proof quality and ease of maintenance. Such features make it a budget-friendly option though luxurious in looks.
However, this flooring is quite delicate. It can easily catch scratches, so moving items on this floor need a lot of caution. Also, the flooring material is not eco-friendly. Still, this flooring option makes the right choice when you need the flooring to mimic a real stone tile.
Porcelain tile flooring
Porcelain tiles make an excellent option for kitchen floor remodeling. These tiles are stain-resistant and truly water-proof. Its high durability offers an element of sustainability in the kitchen remodeling job. The making process of porcelain involves firing it up at a very high temperature. It makes the tile quite hard and impregnable for water and moisture.
It is the most robust material available for the kitchen floor. Hence, installing it can be a tad tedious to manage. Secondly, the kitchen floor becomes quite slippery when adorned with porcelain tiles. Thus, the use of mats on a porcelain tile kitchen floor is advisable.
Engineered hardwood flooring
It is one of the most durable options available for kitchen floor enhancements. The engineered hardwood adds to the style and offers a lot of substance to the kitchen floors. It is exceptionally spill-proof. So, it makes a perfect choice for kitchens that witness a lot of action and traffic. Hardwood flooring gels well in the open-kitchen concept and makes this part a beautiful area of the house, just like a living room. The only downside is its high price and difficulty of replacement if any plank is damaged.
Cork tiles flooring
Cork tiles flooring offers the most reliable material to remodel the kitchen in a highly sustainable manner. It is one of the most eco-friendly materials available for repairing the kitchen floor. This flooring is the easiest to clean and maintain too. Cork tiles offer a safe surface to walk on as it is exceptionally slip-resistant. The cork tiles, however, can pose problems if you have heavy furniture to move. Such materials can cause indentations in this floor. Thus, a little bit of care and caution is necessary. Overall, this flooring is the best way to enhance the look of a modern kitchen.
