Choosing the perfect flooring for your kitchen is not a decision you should make quickly. It’s important to take a good look at the other materials within your kitchen and to research the latest trends. This will make it easier for you to decide on the best flooring.
Color and Style Options
What kind of colors do you want to incorporate into your kitchen? Not all materials are available in all colors, so this has to be a top consideration. If you are looking for something natural and rustic, hardwood or bamboo may be the best option. If you want to incorporate a lot of color into the flooring, looking into vinyl or tile would be a good choice.
Even the way the flooring is installed can give you some added aesthetics. For example, various colors of tile can be used to create a checkerboard, a starburst, and much more. You can customize the look however you desire.
Your kitchen is going to get a lot of traffic in it. The flooring is also going to be vulnerable to anything that may be dropped or spilled. There may be food debris, water, and much more that will hit the floor on a daily basis. As such, you have to choose a flooring material that is easy to clean and that can deal with water without having to worry about mold and mildew. This instantly means that carpeting is out.
There are plenty of other flooring options, however. This includes hardwood, tile, vinyl, linoleum, bamboo, cork, and more. These are all great options, with different pros and cons. If you want to go with a hardwood, consider installing laminate hardwood or engineered hardwood, which are both less susceptible to water damage.
