Picking the Right Floor for Your Kitchen

 In blog

A lot goes on in a kitchen. From heavy traffic to accidental spills, your floors need to stand up to whatever the family throws at or drops on them. In addition, they also need to be aesthetically pleasing and add to the overall beauty of the kitchen space. When looking for the right kitchen flooring, there are several things to consider.

Hardwood floors are a classic and traditional flooring type to see in kitchens. They come in a variety of shades and types, from reclaimed wood to incredibly dark tones. It’s easy to find one that will match your style and color scheme.

They are durable and long lasting. They can withstand spills and foot traffic from family members and pets. If they begin to look faded and worn, that can be easily remedied by having them stripped and refinished.

If there’s a downside to hardwood floors it would be that they don’t stand up well to water damage. If left unattended for too long, water can soak into the wood and cause the wood to expand. This can lead to splitting or buckling. The worst-case scenario if water goes too long without being cleaned up is that the flooring in Aurora can rot.

Using ceramic tiles in your kitchen is a good choice because this is an incredibly long-lasting and durable material. It is easy to clean and stain resistant, so it stands up well against kids and pets. It also comes in multiple colors and shapes, so finding a pattern to match your house won’t be a problem.

The cons of having ceramic tile flooring in your home are that they can be incredibly cold, and they are super strong, meaning that if any glass gets dropped on them, that dish will shatter beyond repair. The surface can also become incredibly slippery and dangerous when wet.

Other flooring options to choose from include vinyl, cork, and stone. They each have their pros and cons, and your budget and preference will determine which material is best for your kitchen floors.
