3 of the Best Kitchen Flooring Options

It’s not easy to choose flooring material for your kitchen because the room’s environment tends to sometimes be greasy and humid. Kitchen floors are also subjected to considerable amount of wear and tear so it’s vital to choose something that would withstand these conditions well. At Custom Concrete Floors, we recommend the options listed below for a busy residential or commercial kitchen:

1. Hardwoodcustom-concrete-flooring-kitchen

Hardwood is often the flooring of choice for most people, especially on residential properties. This material is beautiful to look at and comes in a variety of colours, designs, and textures. If you want a warm, aesthetically pleasing floor, you might want to consider this for your kitchen.

Of course, hardwood has some disadvantages as well. The flooring material is quite expensive and doesn’t fit into everyone’s budget. It’s also porous and can attract grease as well as mould. Hardwood floors are also a little difficult to maintain.

2. Tile

Tile is a very attractive and relatively affordable option. It comes in a variety of colours, textures, and finishes. You can install something that looks like natural wood and stone or choose a bright, interesting pattern. Tile is also quite durable, especially if you take good care of it.

However, this surface is quite hard and cold. It is also easy to crack and chip is something walls on it. While the tile surface isn’t porous, it is slippery so if you spill something on the surface, you need to clean it up quickly in order to avoid accidents.

3. Concrete

Concrete is one of the most versatile and popular flooring options available in the market. You can polish it to a glossy sheen and expose the aggregates in it, apply coating of different colours and textures on it, or stain it. It’s easy to maintain and will last for several years, if not decades, without any problems. Concrete floors are ideal for kitchen environments because they’re a breeze to clean don’t chip or crack easily.

Like all flooring materials, concrete also has some disadvantages. It takes time to install and add a finish to concrete. Freshly laid floors need at least 48 hours to cure. Concrete can sometimes be hard on your feet so you’ll need to place a soft carpet where you stand to make the floor more comfortable.
