If you are planning a kitchen remodel, no doubt you are giving some thought to the type of flooring you install as well. We all know that the kitchen is a place where the floors get a lot of use. If you think about all the splatters or potential stains that will get on the floor, you want to ensure that you have kitchen flooring installed that is both adorable and extremely low maintenance.
What's discuss some of your kitchen flooring options to help you make an informed decision that you will be happy with.
Vinyl flooring is relatively new and not used all that often. It has been around for the past 30 years and is a very tough and durable material that doesn't tear, scratch or rip. Vinyl is very similar to plastic and is very resistant you stains and is easy to wipe clean. The benefit to this type of flooring material is it is a lower cost than stone or ceramic.
Linoleum is another flooring surface that is very popular and environmentally friendly. Linoleum is made from linseed oil and is all natural and biodegradable. So if you are environmentally conscious, I know you're might be the best choice for you. It is also very easy to maintain and extremely low maintenance for my cleaning standpoint. It is also very durable and very resistant to stains and spills.
Ceramic tiling is that look that everyone wants to achieve and is most impervious to any moisture or water damaging it. Cleaning is super simple as you just need to sweep or mop the surface. The only challenge you will experience is your white grout lines will eventually turn brown. There will be an added cost to maintenance if you were to have somebody professionally clean them.
Concrete flooring is increasingly popular and is the easiest to have prepared, especially if you live on a slab instead of an actual full basement foundation. It is extremely durable and almost impossible to chip or dent. From a maintenance or repair standpoint, is extremely easy and inexpensive. The one big problem you will experience is that concrete is very permeable. Spilling any liquids on the floor will only cause the country to absorb it. The solution is to install a sealer that acts as a barrier to avoid any moisture from getting in the concrete.
