Vinyl and linoleum are the most economical, though it pays to purchase the best grade your budget allows, due to the high traffic on kitchen floors. Vinyl comes in a vast assortment of styles that make it easy to customize the floor you want. Vinyl’s long-lasting finish resists scratches and scuffs, plus it has a protective layer that guards against rips and tears.
If you choose a wood or stone pattern, look for as little repeat as possible. If you choose ceramic tile or stone, look for a slip-resistant finish. Ceramic tile is durable, easy to clean, and is available in all colors and styles. Much like ceramic tile, stone is a great kitchen flooring option that looks natural and beautiful and is also easy to clean and care for. Stone is more costly, but if you’re willing to spend a little more, the look is worth it.
Wood floors offer warmth and charm, but require regular sweeping and will not tolerate spills. Hardwood will last a lifetime and adds significant value to your home. Most people like the natural colors and grains in hardwoods, which can make their kitchen look very elegant. There’s a great variety of woods and styles available, from basic domestic woods to wide-plank, authentic hand-sculpted, distressed planks and many others.
New laminate “floating” floors resemble wood, offer resistance to wear, and can be installed over existing floors. Laminate is very durable and now is made to closely resemble wood or stone and is only a fraction of the cost of real hardwood or stone.
In all of these kitchen flooring ideas, you’ll have no trouble finding the right floor to complement your lifestyle and budget. Just keep in my mind that these different floors vary greatly in price. The cheapest route of vinyl/linoleum has an average costs of about $885 for a kitchen remodel, while some hardwoods may cost upwards of $2,500 for the average size kitchen.
