Guide to kitchen floors
With so many flooring options available these days, choosing kitchen flooring can be a tricky task.
Before you even think about the fun part – the colour, style and design – you need to consider what your kitchen is used for. It’s often the hub of the home, a busy space that all the family utilises in different ways so it has to tick a lot of boxes.
Are you a bit of a Nigella Lawson or Jamie Oliver in the kitchen? If you’re someone who likes to spend a lot of time cooking then when you’re choosing kitchen flooring it’s important to look for something that’s soft, springy and comfortable on your feet. Do your toddlers play on the floor or your kids converge in the kitchen to do their homework? Then you’ll want something that’s super-durable, easy to clean and low maintenance. And when you’re choosing kitchen flooring don’t forget your family pets – they’ll appreciate something that’s warm on their paws!
Of course, some things are no brainers when you’re choosing kitchen flooring. You’ll want it to be water-resistant, non-slip and shatter-resistant. After all, there’s no point having fabulous kitchen flooring if you’re constantly worrying about sloshing water over it or dropping crockery on it.
One final thing to think about when choosing kitchen flooring – whereabouts is the kitchen in relationship to the rest of the house? For example, if it’s next to the garage you can expect a lot of traipsing in and out so you’ll need something tough and hard-wearing.
