4 Kitchen Flooring Ideas June 28, 2019

4 Kitchen Flooring Ideas, ,

When you’re ready to upgrade the floors in your kitchen, you may be overwhelmed with all the options out there. Ideally, you’ll want a material that offers durability, easy maintenance, and comfort. Here are a few flooring ideas to consider for your remodeling project. 

A Guide to Kitchen Flooring Materials 

1. Concrete

Concrete is a long-lasting kitchen flooring option. It’s durable and works well in busy kitchens. It also creates a contemporary look. Plus maintenance is easy, as it can be waxed, stained, or polished. If the material feels too cold, install radiant heat flooring underneath.

2. Checkered Tile

flooringThis look has been around for decades and will create a retro, 1950’s feel. In addition to offering a timeless style, checkered tiles are inexpensive to install and easy to maintain. Just clean up any dirt with a broom or vacuum as necessary and clean it with a mop once a week. 

3. Laminate Wood

Laminate wood floors look like natural wood, but the maintenance is far easier. Just give it a good sweeping a few times a week and clean up spills immediately with soap and water. When mopping, make sure the mop isn’t soaking wet, as too much water can seep into the floor. This material is affordable and available in a variety of wood patterns, such as red oak, hickory, and maple. 

4. Bamboo

Are you looking for an eco-friendly flooring option? Bamboo is a highly renewable material, and it’s resistant to moisture and insects, making it long-lasting. The material’s color is warm and will last for decades. It also doesn’t allow allergens to penetrate it, making it an excellent option for people with allergies. Keep your bamboo floor looking new by sweeping it daily and cleaning it with a neutral wooden floor cleaner once a week. Avoid using products on it that may leave a slippery residue, like waxes and furniture polish.
