What type of flooring is best suited to my kitchen?
Your kitchen is a sensitive room and special thought needs to go into the flooring choice for it. Accidents can easily occur from slipping on wet floors in the kitchen and this needs to be avoided. Damages can also be done to the floor from kitchen tools dropping or oils splashing onto the floor.
We recommend Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) for its complete waterproof characteristics. Because they are made from PVC, vinyl tiles do not get affected by water. Also, due to their tough outer layer they can withstand a high traffic area like the kitchen without having dents or scratches.
A good alternative to luxury vinyl tiles is laminate flooring. Laminate flooring can hold its own against scratches and is fairly resistant to moisture. As soon as they get on the floor, splashes should be mopped immediately to prevent liquid from seeping into the floor over time.
While luxury vinyl tiles and laminate flooring are good flooring choices for your kitchen, the same cannot be said about wooden flooring or the use of natural carpets.
