There are so many exciting options from which to choose you can become giddy finding the best flooring for your kitchen.
It really comes down to lifestyle, because what may be right for one home, may not work for another. Is it a busy kitchen, the center of family activities, and the place where guests tend to congregate to visit with the cook? Do you entertain frequently? Do you have kids? Pets? What is your style? Is your kitchen prone to leaks, or is it always dry?
Most importantly, what is your budget? Include not only the cost of the product but also installation, repairs, etc.
Here’s a breakdown of flooring choices for your kitchen—the best of the best, from D’Best Floorz & More of Orlando, FL. We believe in convenience, so text us for an estimate.
- Tile. There is both ceramic and porcelain tile and, while the differences are subtle, they can be significant in how they behave in certain installations.
Porcelain is heavier than ceramic and always waterproof, so this is best for kitchens with heavy foot traffic. Ceramic can also be used for flooring.
Although It is thinner, it is strong and, if glazed, completely impervious to water.
- Waterproof flooring is luxury vinyl with an advanced WPC (wood composite core) that makes it thicker and offers the highest level of protection against water and moisture.
- Luxury vinyl. Style and practicality! It is waterproof and a realistic mimic of wood, stone or tile. Add texturing for extra depth and dimension, as well as some features like micro-beveling, and you have a high-end look at an affordable price. It’s also a good choice if you do a lot of time-consuming food preparation because it’s softer and less rigid on which to stand.
- Laminate. Very reasonably priced, but it doesn’t look cheap. You can get the look of wood, tile, or stone in a wide range of colors, designs, and species. It is water-resistant but not waterproof, and it’s made of wood byproducts, so it can be damaged by liquid.
- Wood floors. This is always a popular choice, BUT keep in mind that wood can be damaged by excess water.
