Choosing the right kitchen floor
For some of us the kitchen floor will be the same material as the rest of the living area, yet if itís not, we need to consider what flooring precisely suits our needs and lifestyle.
Choosing the right material for your kitchen floor will depend on your budget, environment and lifestyle. If you have kids running around making a mess, your floor may differ to that of a kitchen that is more tailored towards entertaining.
There are many materials you can consider for the kitchen floor. For those who place great importance on durability and maintenance, itís hard to go past linoleum, or tile. Lino is inexpensive, there are loads of great designs and it is so easy to clean. Ceramic tiles are even better. Highly durable, tiles offer the homeowner the guarantee that their kitchen floor will remain intact for many years. The ease of maintenance of this flooring makes tiles an attractive option for many. You also have a variety of styles and colours to choose from. Then there's wood, which can add warmth to the kitchen, while coping with numerous occupants.
Youíve also got concrete, aesthetically minimalist, and offering the homeowner a long-lasting strong kitchen floor that will resist any stains, spills, scratches and messes, along with a lot of kitchen activity. You may prefer the beauty of natural stone tile for your kitchen floor. There are a variety of stones to choose from, in a variety of price ranges, and cleaning is a breeze.
And finally you have options like cork, which is great under foot, and carpet, which while offering a beautiful soft feel, can be a nightmare for keeping stain-free.
With so many options for flooring, give a Kitcheners ® designer a call as they can help you decide which is best for you.
