4 Best Options for Kitchen Flooring

Are you ready to renovate your kitchen? Want to update your kitchen flooring?

If so, there are many great options if you’re ready to spruce it up.

When you’re considering kitchen floor options, it’s important to select one that is low maintenance, within budget and reflects your sense of style. For example, a family of five with pets may pay more attention to durability and scratches than a married couple with no children.

No matter your kitchen habits and lifestyle, there is a kitchen floor that fits your needs. In no particular order, here are a few kitchen flooring options that you should consider.

Hardwood

There’s a reason hardwood flooring has been around for centuries. It is one of the most durable flooring options for your home. Not only that, it is easy to clean, brings elegance to any space and has various options. With great care, some hardwood flooring can last more than 50 years.

While hardwood can go in almost any room in your home, oak and hickory flooring are encouraged for kitchens because of their durability.

Laminate

If you’re looking for dependable flooring for spills in the kitchen, but hardwood is too pricey, laminate would be a great choice. Laminate flooring is built to resist scratches and stains and is easy to clean. Laminate is also eco-friendly, using less natural materials than other flooring options. It also comes in a variety of styles and colors, giving your kitchen a personal look.

Laminate flooring can not be refinished like hardwood flooring. It will need to be replaced if there’s too much moisture damage to it over time.

Vinyl

Similar to laminate flooring, vinyl is easy to clean and another durable option for your kitchen floor. When installed, it includes a cushion to make it more comfortable to walk on the floor. However, unlike laminate which is water resistant, vinyl flooring is waterproof, being able to withstand water damage from kitchen sink leaks and spills. 

While vinyl flooring is extremely durable, it is not available in as many unique looks and styles as laminate flooring options.

Tile

Tile is the most popular flooring option for kitchens and bathrooms. This is because it is durable and water-resistant. It can withstand the foot traffic of family parties, doesn’t absorb the odor of dishes and holds its own against the messiness of children and pets.

While tile can stand up to anything you throw its way, some patterns can be uncomfortable to stand on for long periods of time. Cooks will want to stand on floor mats and wear comfortable shoes while preparing food. However, this doesn’t take away from the beauty tile flooring can add to your home.
