The Best Flooring for Kitchens
The kitchen is one of the most high-traffic areas of the home, with kids and pets tracking in dirt and cooking spills happening on occasion no matter how hard you might try to avoid it. You can experiment all you want with carpet in other rooms where the floor will take less of a beating, but kitchen flooring should be practical above all else.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to forego aesthetics. When looking for suitable flooring for what is arguably the busiest room in the house, we typically recommend materials based on qualities including longevity, durability, and resistance to scratches and the elements for years to come.
Fortunately, this doesn’t mean that you have to close the door on your dream of having a trendy Pinterest-worthy kitchen. There are many options available that allow you to incorporate your personal flair: whether you’re hoping to create a Joanna Gaines-inspired farmhouse chic or go for an ultra-modern industrial vibe, you will surely find the flooring of your dreams for your home kitchen.
Trendy and Low-Maintenance
Vinyl flooring remains the most obvious choice for kitchens, and there are certainly plenty of designs on the market that look suitably hip while remaining strong enough to withstand water stains, spills, dirt, and grime.
If there’s anything Carpet Bonanza does well, it’s laminate flooring installation. We’re a big fan of this material due to its durability and recommend it for use in kitchens. However, vinyl flooring is an affordable alternative. Vinyl planks have the appearance of laminate flooring while remaining remarkably resilient to the test of time—and rambunctious toddlers and family pets.
Sleek and Traditional
If you have perused any home décor blogs recently, you might have been wondering why on earth so many families have chosen wood flooring for their kitchen. The reality is that they’ve most likely opted for wood-look tile flooring, a very trendy alternative to the timeless appearance of simple white or grey tile.
With a variety of textures, colors, and woodgrains to choose from, you can create the illusion of untainted hardwood in your kitchen and maintain a clean cooking and living space in your home for years to come.
As with any home renovation project, when it comes to kitchen remodeling, it is always a good idea to receive an in-home estimate before you start ripping up floorboards. You can save yourself a great deal of time, energy, and unnecessary costs by consulting with a professional.
