Kitchen floors need to be practical, hard wearing and easy on the eye. Most modern kitchen fittings tend to offer a sublime essence of visual appeal, and you need to ensure that your choice of flooring represents a reflection of your kitchens major design statement too.
The floor you opt for will likely affect all other aspects of the overall kitchen design, so you need to be certain of the correct style, material and colour of your choice.
- Being very hard-wearing, tiles and stone based materials are excellent for high traffic areas. Stone tends to be limited for choice of colour but will match most kitchen designs. Ceramic tile on the other hand can be picked up in almost any colour preference you chose and will offer more noticeable characteristics to your kitchen design. Having said this, ceramic tiles can be prone to chips and cracking which can be expensive to repair or replace, therefore we recommend a tile effect vinyl flooring which offers similar design features.
- Budgeted floors will send you in the direction of vinyl options. Although it’s the budget option here, a well-chosen vinyl floor can still offer excellent benefits for durability and design.
- Most modern kitchen designs match well with hard wearing wood flooring. Wooden floors are a choice choice for sophisticated style and places where excessive traffic is apparent however, this is likely to exceed most budgets and our suggestion is to opt for a choice of laminates.
- Laminates will offer similar characteristics to the more premium option of wood floors, without the added cost. This is the most popular option in the current day as it offers an excellent life span, won’t eat your budget, and is versatile enough to suit any kitchen design.
