What Are the Best Kitchen Flooring Options?
There are a few different features that you'll need with your kitchen flooring choice. First off, you'll need to choose a floor that can handle moisture and foot traffic, especially if you spend a lot of time in your kitchen. Also, you need to consider maintenance. The best kitchen floors are spill and stain resistant.
The most popular flooring options for kitchens are tile flooring, luxury vinyl flooring, and laminate flooring.
Tile flooring usually lasts longer than ones made of laminate. The wood also might require replacement sooner than tile if not treated because it might be more susceptible to scratches. Laminate does not chip or crack, but it can rip when dragging heavy appliances across it. The kitchen tile, however, holds heavy appliances well and no indentations are left behind after moving the stove, refrigerator, or table. Furthermore, this kind of material stays cool to the feet even in summer. If you want to make it less slippery, you just need to lay down a few rugs and immediately clean up all spills.Learn More About Tile

Laminate flooring provides a similar type of elegance as would a hardwood floor. However, it will not absorb food and liquid or accumulate bacteria and other germs. Moreover, you can also clean it with water and floor soap without damaging it. Laminate is more economical than kitchen tile, and it is just as easy to clean with soap and water. Furthermore, you can also choose a material pattern that resembles natural wood. Furthermore, it is softer to walk on and does not feel cold to bare feet.Learn More About Laminate
