5 Great Tips for Choosing Your Ideal Kitchen Flooring

In American culture, we entertain. We have friends and family over at our houses, especially when it’s a special day. Our kitchens become the epicenter of the fun and gathering space; heavy foot traffic walks on the kitchen floor during these get-togethers and it gets looked at. A lot. 

Chairs, feet, furniture are just some of the things that get dragged across our floors.

So now you need a kitchen floor that is both durable and aesthetically pleasing. Here are five choices for you to find the floor that will do both!

  1. Ceramic tile. A winner for any style and budget. Ceramic tiles are both wonderfully durable and easy-to-clean; if you have a spill, just wipe it up and move on, which is ideal for parties. It is also affordable, which makes it an ideal floor for people with children. Match the flooring to any décor with the endless variety of color selection.
  2. Porcelain tile is both complimentary and beautiful. Compliment any décor and hardwood flooring with great porcelain tile; porcelain tile comes in a wide array of colors, like ceramic tile, and looks great with its hi-def printing techniques.
  3. Hardwood flooring gives great warmth. If you live in an area where winters are cold, then hardwood is a great option for your home; it will feel softer and warmer under the feet for you and your guests. Also an easy clean up for spills, hardwood looks great and can be a great entertaining option. Hardwood floors also increase the value of a home more than other flooring options; mahogany, maple, and oak are heavily desired hardwood flooring options in homes.
  4. Laminate flooring looks great and is very affordable. If you want the look of hardwood but don’t want the budget, then laminate is a great way to go. Excellently capture the look of bamboo, hardwood, or stone floors in a way that is easy to install and is easy on the wallet. Just lie over existing flooring and be on your way. Oh, did we mention it is scratch resistant?
  5. Vinyl flooring is great for comfort and unique style. Having guests over often means a lot of standing; getting things ready for the guests, people standing in the kitchen talking, etc. Vinyl is great for standing for long periods of time. It offers exceptional cushioning because it is installed over a subfloor.


So which floor is for you? That is for you to decide. If you have any questions, talk to Chicagoland Pro! Even if you have questions about a flooring that is not hardwood, we can help.
