The kitchen is often the busiest part of the home and tends to wear the most traffic. Your kitchen sees you at your most inspired and when choosing flooring you need to consider the durability of the product, if it’s easy to clean and also how porous the product is for those messy spills.
Polished concrete is considered a sustainable flooring option because it makes use of the materials already present. Polishing the existing exposed concrete slab eliminates both the cost of adding extra materials and the use of additional materials so it’s an environmentally-friendly option.
Polished concrete floors are low-maintenance, as they are durable and easy to clean. They reduce are great for those with dust allergies and do not support mould growth.
Concrete floors are perfect for a modern/industrial or contemporary style of kitchen.
Wooden floors add warmth to a room and are easy to clean with a brush and damp mop. Different colours, stains and timbers create different looks. They are perfect for a rustic country look or the modern, minimalist feel.
Timber floating floors are engineered pieces of wood that fit together in a tongue-and-groove fashion. The wood is three-ply and very thick, and its weight means it doesn’t need to be glued or attached to the surface below. Laminate floating floors can be laid on any flat surface. Again, it’s very quick to assemble as the pieces just click together.
Made from plastic, this tough, resilient product can be made to look like wood, stone, marble, tiles or metals. They come in a huge range of colours, textures and tones.
Vinyl floors are easy to clean, durable and much quieter than wood or stone as they absorb sound. Heat and stain resistant, they are also warm and waterproof.
Ceramic and stone tile floors are very popular for kitchen floors. Ceramic tiles (not quite as durable as stone) can be finished to look like natural stone.
Tiles are cool underfoot, incredibly durable and well-suited to warmer climates. Blending the tiles from inside to outside creates a wonderful flow through to your external living areas.
