There are many elements to consider when you are remodeling your kitchen. One important feature is the flooring. The flooring you choose for your kitchen can add a lot to the overall look of the room.
These days there are many options available for kitchen flooring. When you are choosing your flooring – be sure to bring a sample of your cabinet choice, countertop, and backsplash to get an idea of how all of these elements will look together.
Vinyl flooring is the cheapest option. Modern vinyl flooring is good at mimicking just about any type of flooring. You can use it to get the look of wood, tile, or stone. It is durable, waterproof, and easy to care for. Vinyl is appropriate for high traffic areas and will resist all the scratches and wear and tear of pets.
The major types of tile are ceramic and porcelain. Both types are durable and low maintenance. They can be cut into different shapes and sizes and come in a variety of colors and styles. The price range of tile flooring is about as variable as the different types available. It can be cheap or extremely expensive depending on your choice.
Stone will give your kitchen a nice old world feel. It is also a very hard and durable flooring option. Stone is porous and depending on the type of stone use you will probably have to get it sealed a couple times a year. It is also available in many different color and texture options.
Cork floors are great for the environment. They are soft and comfortable underfoot. However, despite their aesthetic appeal, they don’t hold up to wear and tear as well as other flooring options. That is something you will have to consider, but cork does make for an attractive flooring choice.
Hardwood floors never go out of style. They are durable and many options these days come pre-sanded, stained, and sealed. Hardwood is a classic flooring to use anywhere in your house.
Like cork, bamboo is very sustainable because the bamboo plant grows so quickly. Bamboo has a similar look as hardwood. It can be stained in various colors from the light blond to the darkest brown.
Once you pick out the flooring that is right for your kitchen you can give your kitchen added comfort and warmth by adding area rugs. You could use a runner in front of the sink. If there is an eating nook in your kitchen use an area rug under the table.
