Tile & Laminate flooring options for your Kitchen

Top Kitchen Flooring Options

If you are looking for a way to improve the look and feel of your kitchen, consider installing a new floor. Too many homeowners make the mistake of assuming that hardwood is the best and only option for their kitchen floor. The truth is that a hardwood floor isn't ideal for homes with children or parents who are pressed for time. Keeping a hardwood floor clean is an unenviable challenge as it is not waterproof and must be sealed for adequate protection. As a result, the cleanup process can be quite the arduous process. Let's take a look at some alternative kitchen flooring options.

Laminate Flooring for Kitchens

Laminate flooring is affordable, versatile and quite easy to install. You can choose from all sorts of different aesthetics. Some varieties of laminate flooring even look similar to hardwood. Perhaps the best feature of laminate flooring is that the material is inherently waterproof. You can clean up spills with little time and effort. Though the lifespan of laminate flooring options differ, the majority are sold with a manufacturer’s warranty that sets longevity expectations.

Kitchen Tile Flooring

A kitchen tile floor matches the aesthetic beauty of hardwood flooring yet it has a myriad of unique advantages. Install tile flooring in your kitchen and you'll enjoy a waterproof surface that can be cleaned with ease. Just grab your broom or mop and you'll have your tile floor back to normal in minutes. This is exactly the type of low-maintenance flooring you need for a heavily-trafficked kitchen. If you are concerned about the appearance of tile flooring in the kitchen, don't fret. You can pick from an array of styles and colors to best pair your floor to existing kitchen appliances, cupboards and lighting. At a mere $3-$8 per square foot, tile flooring is an excellent bargain.

Rubber flooring might seem like an odd idea at first yet it is the perfect fit for contemporary kitchens. You can select from rubber sheets or tiles with distinct patterns, textures and colors. You will absolutely love its springy feel. Furthermore, rubber soaks up water and isn't flammable.

Concrete Flooring

Concrete kitchen floors are en vogue, especially in urban settings. Concrete flooring provides the aesthetic of stone at a much lower cost. You can even texture, score or dye your concrete kitchen floor to create a customized look. Add in the fact this material is water-resistant and simple to clean and it is easy to see why so many homeowners are considering installing concrete flooring in their kitchen.
