Custom Flooring Materials
There are a variety of materials commonly used in the kitchen, ranging from classic woods and tiles to more modern synthetic options. Your choice of kitchen flooring should match the level of maintenance, durability, and aesthetics you’re looking for in the room. While there are countless options to choose from, these are some of the most common.
As one of the most traditional alternatives, hardwood flooring has been used in construction for centuries. With the wide variety of woods and finishes available (such as maple, oak, and walnut to name just a few), it’s versatile and easy to add to any kitchen design. Hardwood floor is durable and can be refinished multiple times when necessary. On the other hand, it’s also vulnerable to scrapes, scratches and moisture – it also often needs maintained with new finish every three to give years.
On the other side of the moisture spectrum, tile is largely moisture-proof and also manufactures in a wide range of colors and styles. It provides an incredibly durable and long lasting hard surface, and is a classic in moisture prone areas like kitchens or bathrooms. Some varieties (like porcelain tile) can be expensive, however, and installation can take more labor and preparation than many alternatives.
A modern alternative to wood, laminate consists of plywood or fiberboard with a high definition image layer (often made of a material similar to wood, stone, or even metal), followed by a protective layer on top to protect the core. As a result, laminate is cheaper and easier to install than wood, as well as more resistant to wear and tear. In exchange, it loses some authenticity – it often doesn’t look or feel quite like wood, can’t be refinished.
Another modern addition, vinyl flooring is composed of plastic and on the inexpensive side. It’s durable, water resistant, DIY-friendly, easy to maintain, and manufactured in a variety of styles. One of its only flaws is potential ROI – while return on investment varies between projects, in some situations vinyl may not provide the same draw as more traditional options would.
