Whether you have decided to remodel or update your kitchen, you are in the market for some new floors. With a variety of products on the market, it can seem daunting to choose just one flooring option. For help selecting the perfect type of flooring for your kitchen, we have created five easy tips for you to utilize. Our hope is that you can use this guide to help narrow down your search. Let’s get started!
How to Select The Perfect Kitchen Floors:
1. Easy-to-Clean + Maintain.
After doing the dishes and cleaning up after dinner, the last thing you will want to do is deep-clean your floors. That is why we recommend looking for an easy-to-clean and easy-to-maintain flooring option for your kitchen. This way you can keep the beautiful look of your flooring without worrying about accidents/spills. An excellent choice for cleaning and maintenance would be luxury vinyl or tile.
2. Scratch + Stain Resistant.
Kitchens tend to be high-traffic areas. While preparing meals, you will find yourself shuffling around your floors a lot, and this can potentially cause unwanted wear and tear. While looking for the perfect kitchen flooring, you want to choose a style that is scratch/stain resistant. A great option can be engineered hardwood, sheet vinyl, or luxury vinyl tile.
Accidents happen all the time, and we are sure that you do not want those accidents to show on your floors for years to come. Get ahead of drops and spills by choosing a durable floor. Engineered tile and laminate can help prevent dents from happening the first time.
4. Water Resistant/Proof.
Kitchens are prone to moisture; therefore, it is essential to find water-resistant flooring. Luxury vinyl tile is 100% waterproof to prevent swelling and buckling when interacted with water.
Prepping meals can mean being on your feet for an extended period of time; the comfort of your flooring can be an essential part of your flooring’s characteristics. While tile looks beautiful, it can be hard on your feet and back. Alternatively, engineered tile will give you that beautiful natural look with a less harsh hard-surface.
