What Flooring Material Best Suits My Kitchen?

Women belong in the kitchen. Men belong in the kitchen. Everyone belongs in the kitchen— it’s where the food’s at!

Your kitchen is probably the most hard-working part of your house, and the one that sees the most traffic every day! From preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner and scouring for midday and midnight snacks, children doing their homework on the dinner table, and pets sniffing around the place for treats, your floor is likely to suffer a lot of wear throughout the day. This is why only the best-quality, durable flooring will do!

But depending upon your particular needs, the type of kitchen flooring that works for you will vary. Here are some of the best choices to look into:

Sheet Vinyl Flooring

Perfect for households that cook a lot, vinyl floors are the easiest to maintain, wipe clean and are also cheap. Waterproof, stain proof and durable, sheet vinyl floors are also softer, making it easier on the feet and relieving muscle fatigue. Sheet vinyl however, can often trap dirt, dust and moisture beneath it and between cracks, resulting in water damage causing floors to warp and be susceptible to mold.

Tile Flooring

Ideal for when you require the strongest, toughest flooring for your kitchen, tile flooring—especially porcelain tile—is low-maintenance, hygienic, durable and easy to clean. Porcelain tile, while more expensive than ceramic or terracotta tiles, are less likely to chip, crack and break and can last you decades even with constant use. Tile is also versatile and available in a wide variety of colors, patterns and shapes.

Hardwood Floors

The perfect combination of beauty and functionality, hardwood floors are perhaps the most durable options and stand the test of time by never going out of style. If you’re looking for a floor type that does not require replacement for several decades after installation, hardwood floors are the way to go!

Perfect for open plan kitchens, hardwood floors provide warmth, coziness and the feeling of home to any kitchen. They also require minimal maintenance and the pre-finished types are moisture-resistant. If you’re looking to install a hardwood floor for your kitchen, engineered wood might be the way to go because of its resistance to warping due to humidity and temperature changes.
