Choose your flooring wisely when planning your kitchen remodel.
The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home. However, kitchens are also home to a lot of moisture, and when you’re looking at flooring options, you’ll need to consider functionality in addition to looks.
Remodeling your kitchen can freshen up your home but also increase the resale value. Let’s look at some popular flooring options for your next kitchen remodel. We work with residents in Plant City, Lakeland, Winter Haven, and other nearby communities in central Florida. You can also explore flooring options in person at our showroom.
Hardwood seems to be a perennial favorite and for good reason. Hardwood flooring is durable, long-lasting, and has considerable color variety. Hardwood floors are rarely out of style, and some popular wood varieties include cherry, white oak, and hickory.
Genuine hardwood floors fall into the higher-end category in terms of flooring options, but when you take care of your floor, it will pay you back in longevity and beauty. Hardwood flooring trends for kitchens include:
- Natural finishes
- Color variation
- Light finishes (honey, gray, etc.)
If you’re like most of us, spending time in the kitchen means spills and a bit of a mess. Ceramic tile has been consistently popular for kitchens, particularly because the tiles are strong and stain-resistant. One of the other major draws to tile is that they come in a huge variety of colors and textures, and tile patterns can make a dramatic impact on the look and feel of your kitchen.
The current tile trends for flooring include:
- Unique patterns
- Large tiles
- Angles (think chevron and herringbone)
Stone is a beautiful and water-resistant option that lasts for decades. Due to the different mineral compositions, there is significant variation in terms of colors and textures, creating a unique look. Popular natural stone options include:
- Marble – Many varieties; high-end
- Granite – Wide variety of colors and textures
- Sandstone – Perfect for a beachy/desert aesthetic
- Flagstone – Available in square-angle or irregular shapes
Bamboo is an increasingly popular flooring choice and is a wood-alternative to hardwood. Bamboo is considered a sustainable material in part because it grows so quickly and can be replenished in a shorter amount of time than hardwood sources.
Bamboo flooring can be produced in a couple of ways. One is a solid plank of fibers held together with adhesives, while another popular option is based on woven bamboo fibers that create an even stronger and more durable surface. Bamboo is also more water-resistant than hardwood, though spills should still be cleaned sooner rather than later.
The right kitchen flooring is a blend of functionality and personality. Call us today to discuss your design options.
