Kitchen floors are a balance between achieving the look you would like for your room and being mindful of the materials that will work best in that area of the home. Kitchens are areas where spills are more likely, there can be water leaks, there is a lot of traffic going on, and more. Here are some factors you should consider when choosing your kitchen flooring.
How you use your kitchen, the amount of traffic it receives, and more all decides what kind of flooring is the best for you. If you tend to drop things, or you have animals and kids, you will need a flooring that can stand up to this kind of wear. Non-slip floors are important too if young children are present. Safety comes first.
Get a floor that is easy to clean. You may love individual tiles but getting in between the grout and cracks can be a chore and if not done properly, dirt, and grime can build up in the cracks. Water resistant, easy to clean, and not stainable are all ideal options.
Some kitchen flooring materials are already water resistant, and due to the high traffic; you will need a material that is not slippery or easy to scratch. Vinyl flooring, luxury vinyl tile, porcelain tile, and ceramic tile both fit these requirements. If you would like to get wood flooring, or a composite version of it, there are water-resistant and repellant coatings available for hard wood, and you can add waterproofing under the materials as well.
Your budget will have a big say on the flooring you can pick. For example, classic wood floorings might be your dream look, but there are more affordable vinyl options in the form of planks or rolls. Get that look you have always dreamed of without breaking the bank.
