When it comes to a kitchen remodel, one of the most important choices you will have to make is what type of flooring to invest in. Your choice of flooring material will dramatically impact your space and there are benefits and drawbacks to each material. In this week’s blog, join us as we discuss the pros and cons of flooring materials so you can decide which is right for your kitchen remodel.
Choosing Flooring for Your Kitchen Remodel
Tile has long been the go-to choice for kitchen remodel floors. It’s long-lasting, comes in a dizzying array of patterns and styles, and resists wear, staining, and scratches. Many prospective homebuyers see tile flooring as a major selling point so if you are concerned about your home’s resale value then it may be a great choice for you. However, its durability comes at a price and it’s one of the more expensive flooring options out there. Installation is also tricky, requiring a knowledgeable contractor who is experienced in installing tile floors. If you want to think long term and aren’t too worries about costs, tile is a wonderful, classic choice
Laminate flooring has gained popularity over the past few decades and for good reasons: it is affordable, relatively easy to install, and comes in a range of styles to suit any kitchen remodel. It’s also easy to care for and requires little upkeep. However, the soft surface of laminate is prone to scratching and if you are not careful to wipe up spills quickly then water can damage the surface of your laminate, leaving an unsightly stain. If you are budget-conscious and want a quick and easy solution then laminate may be a great choice.
Wooden floors may be unusual in a kitchen remodel but they can make a beautiful statement. Hardwood floors offer warmth and a sense of hominess so they are becoming increasingly popular in modern kitchens. Hardwood floors can last for decades with proper care and relatively easy to refinish if they experience any surface damage. However, many people are concerned about installing wood floors in a kitchen due to fears of damaging it with kitchen spills. So long as your flooring is well sealed and you wipe up spills promptly, wood floors can hold up well in a kitchen remodel.
