Choosing kitchen flooring is a major part of any new kitchen design.  The flooring sets tone for the rest of your design.  Cabinet colors, wall colors, everything is influenced by your kitchen flooring choices.  There are lots of kitchen flooring choices these days. Making the decision about which flooring to choose comes down to several things including your budget, flooring durability, and overall look and feel.

First, stone or tile is always a great option for kitchens. Kitchens are high traffic areas and stone and ceramic tile can stand up to lots of feet every day. There are lots of color choices for ceramic tile too.  Both are quiet durable, but can be hard on your feet. You might consider a kitchen mat if you do a lot of cooking to provide some extra cushion. Tile and stone conjure up images of buildings and sculptures that have withstood the test of time. Consider the Parthenon, the Forum, Michelangelo’s David, Versailles, just to name a few. Not only are these structures durable and timeless, but their natural beauty is beyond compare. When looking to make the ultimate statement in your own castle, the use of tile and stone is the natural choice.

If you’re on a budget, there are lots of great vinyl options.  Vinyl flooring has benefited from many innovations in both style and performance in recent years. Now, it leads the way in achieving the perfect balance between affordability and durability. Available in tiles or sheets, and in a variety of colors and styles, vinyl is a great inexpensive kitchen floor choice!

If you’re unsure about what to choose for your kitchen flooring choices, start by thinking about your budget. Stone and tile are more expensive.  Vinyl will be good if you need something less expensive. Think about your tastes and personal style preferences and find a flooring that matches that. You’ll be much happier with your choice that way.
