3 Durable Kitchen Flooring Options for Your Custom Home, Chillicothe, Ohio

When you're designing a custom home, the flooring material is an important factor that will not only determine how the home will look but also how comfortable, convenient, and durable the floor will be. Some materials are easier to clean and maintain than others, especially in areas like the kitchen, where it's common for water to splash on the floor. As you plan your new home, consider these options for your kitchen.

What Flooring Material Should the Builder Put in Your Kitchen?

1. Wood

While a wood floor can be damaged by water, it will be safe if you wipe up spills quickly. The smooth surface makes sweeping and other cleanup easy. Wood is one of the most beautiful flooring materials available and will immediately add value to your custom home. If the surface does get scuffed or worn, it can be resurfaced without a full replacement.

2. Vinyl

Custom HomeVinyl is a synthetic, water-resistant material that is difficult to stain and holds up well to the kind of wear and tear that happens in a kitchen. Modern luxury vinyl comes in sheets or easy-to-install tiles and is available in a full range of colors and prints, including options that look just like wood. It's relatively inexpensive and easy to wipe off if you have a spill.

3. Tile

Tile is a durable option that is resilient against scuffs and nicks that would damage other materials. It's easy to create attractive patterns with the wide range of colored and shaped tiles available. You can even choose stone tiles rather than the usual porcelain for a classic, rustic look.
