It is never easy to renovate a house. It doesn’t matter if you are just choosing a new paint color, installing new tile in the bathroom shower, replacing a faucet, or replacing your floor. You need to make a decision for every little or big thing that you do and that decision can be more difficult than you ever imagined possible.
Here are 5 kitchen flooring options that are available to you:
Ceramic tiles are available in numerous colors, patterns, shapes, and sizes, so it is guaranteed that you will find a tile that you will fall in love with. These tiles are quite durable and easy to clean, yet they can be difficult to stand on for longer periods of time. You will want to be careful if they get wet, because they can become very slippery. Also, if you are prone to dropping things, you may want to stay away from these, because anything that gets dropped on them will break.
Laminate floors are available in many styles and while many people will choose a laminate that looks like wood, you may choose another option like stone or bamboo. This material is not as prone to scratches as hardwood, but it can become damaged with continuous water exposure.
Vinyl floors are quite durable and they are easier to stand on than tiled floors. They are also easy to keep clean day after day. The downside to vinyl is that it can get scratched or gouged with a chair being scrapped across it or a sharp knife being dropped.
Bamboo floors are made from sustainably harvested materials, so if you are looking for a floor that will not create havoc in the world’s ecosystem, this is one of your best options. These floors are durable, but we recommend that you choose moso bamboo, because it is the hardest and most durable of all the available bamboos.
Cork is another material that is eco-friendly and it provides a soft cushiony feel once it is installed. You can purchase cork in a variety of colors as well as textures and patterns. While cork floors can become scratched and dented, some of those will go away with time.
The kitchen flooring that you choose will have to meet your everyday needs, but since you have so many options available to you, it should be fairly easy to find one. We recommend that you first decide on what flooring material you want and then decide on colors, designs, and everything else.
