Kitchen flooring should always be easy to wipe, mop and maintain, and there are many different types of flooring to consider when you’re redecorating your kitchen. Stone or slate flooring can be rather expensive, and it can pick up stains but it does add value, and a luxury style to your home.
Laminate flooring and vinyl kitchen flooring are both low cost options, and there different styles to choose between. The only problem is they can ‘feel cheap’, and you’re essentially installing fake tiles or fake oak flooring in your home.
Solid oak is the real deal, but of course it can be pricey. You can finish these boards in a colour you’re happy with, whilst they can be sanded down and retreated over the years, yet they only develop more character as the years go on.
Ceramic floor tiles are another popular option, and you can choose between various textures, colours and patterns to get an extra special look. You must remember that you need a solid concrete base before laying the tiles, otherwise they can crack quite easily.
