Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home, and it is also vital that you get the design right, particularly when it comes down to the flooring. There are a number of different options available to you, and we’re going to break them down for you in this post.
The first we’re going to look at is the most popular option on the market – hardwood flooring. One of the most durable floorings on the market, incredibly hardwearing and also comes with an excellent sense of style and grandeur. Solid oak with a lacquered finish is the best choice due to its excellent water resistance. Any water spillages can be easily cleaned, as opposed to brushed and oiled finishes which can stain easier. Kitchens can be a place of heavy footfall and high traffic so it’s important to ensure you have something durable, hardwood is definitely that.
The next best option is Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT), and is the alternative to hardwood. It has a similar style and they offer extremely good resistance to water, stains and also offer durability and versatility. Spillages cause very little damage and a far more stain resistant than wood flooring or even laminate, and cleaning vinyl is even easier, just use a mop!
The final option we’re going to look at is laminate. It’s easy to clean and take care of and regular sweeping with a dust mop and clearing spillages quickly will keep your laminate in top condition. It is also easily one of the most cost effective floorings on the market. If you’re a home on a budget then this is definitely what we’d recommend. It’s also incredibly easy to install due to its click-loc system! This system is as it sounds, it clicks into place very easily.
We hope our guide has helped you! There’s no right or wrong answer, each floor has its own benefit so good luck making your decision!
