When you choose flooring for your home, it’s usually a tossup between hardwoods and carpet. That’s a tough decision that depends heavily on your style, budget, and needs. Our customers sometime spend weeks making this choice. But that’s nothing compared to the selection process for kitchen flooring. If you are like us, the kitchen is the heart and soul of your home. It’s the gathering place where we share meals and stories and generally come together as a family. A versatile room like this deserves a versatile selection of flooring. Kitchen floors run the gamut of styles and functions in order to find that perfect fit. We don’t like to play favorites, but this might be our favorite room to help customers with. (Don’t tell the living rooms we said that.)
There are truly as many kitchen floor types as there are types of homeowners. We love helping people find the perfect compliment to their lifestyle. Here are a few of our favorites.
In terms of eye-catching looks, a solid stone floor is tops. Granite, slate, and limestone all give an “old-world” vibe to a kitchen, despite feeling at home in both modern and classic kitchens. Even better than how stone looks, is how durable it is. A stone flooring can take just about any abuse you dish out.
Wood is the classic flooring for kitchens for good reason. It’s durable, looks great, and is affordable. Also, if you are refinishing your entire home’s flooring, it is efficient to simply add the same hardwoods in the kitchen. This gives the home a uniform sense of flow. Hardwoods, from pine to oak and everything in between, are famous for not just looking great, but being simple to clean and tough against spills and stains.
For the combination of durability, looks, and price many customers lean toward vinyl flooring. That’s because you can have the exact look you are craving within practically any budget. Vinyl tiles beautifully mimic both hardwoods and stone, as well as any other pattern you can dream up (classic checkerboard pattern, anyone?). Vinyl is soft on feet and easy to clean, too.
