What is the best type of flooring for kitchens?
There is a good reason why kitchens don’t have carpets. Kitchens are messy places where food could fall or splatter onto the floor at any moment you’re cooking or eating. It is also a fire hazard to have a fabric-based floor around gas or electric appliances.
For this reason, a solid floor is the best suited for kitchens. Some fantastic solid kitchen flooring options are as follows:
– Stained Concrete
– Stone Tile
There are pros and cons to each choice. Hardwood flooring is popular because its natural aesthetics make it blend wonderfully in any kitchen. The only problem is that wood is susceptible to moisture and mould damage. But if you laminate the hardwood flooring, you can reduce that problem significantly.
A much better option would be ceramic tiling for your kitchen floors. Ceramic is a durable and solid clay-based material available in many different sizes, shapes, and colours. It is also affordable, heat resistant, and impact-resistant too. So if you want a convenient kitchen flooring option that requires very little maintenance, then you should choose ceramic tile for your kitchen floors.
Alternatively, if you are looking for the most budget-friendly option, you should choose vinyl tile. It is the easiest and cheapest DIY option and can resist stains, spills, and moderate impact. The only downside is that you’ll have to replace the tile after about 5 to 10 years.
