There are a lot of quality and modern kitchen flooring materials available today, from tiles made of ceramic to hardwood stone. Kitchen floors have to be utilitarian and durable and also act as a style statement. The floor that you choose totally affects every other element of your kitchen. Stone or tiled flooring is very useful when there is heavy traffic in the house.
Types of kitchen flooring:
These days you have ceramic tiles that are available in multitude of colors with various textures and shades. They can easily stand wear and tear and are very easy to clean. But the problem is that they are capable of shattering anything that falls on them. Even a little moisture can make them very slippery. Textures can be added to the surface to add more friction and traction. To get an old world look, one can opt for limestone as it is natural and also porous. Even granite and travertine can be used. Each piece of stone is unique and this difference creates a visual depth that cannot be easily replicated. This definitely makes the kitchen look more upscale and trendy. Apart from this, wood is also another choice, as it feels good to walk on and is suitable for cold climates. It is the classic choice for kitchen floorings and it can be sanded and refinished as required. They can withstand traffic and stains and we can add plastic laminates on them for better finish too. For those on a budget, vinyl floorings are the best options, though it isn’t considered very chic.
