How to Choose the Best Kitchen Flooring for Your Home

Choosing the right flooring for your kitchen is an important but somewhat tricky challenge. That’s because the best kitchen flooring needs to fulfill a number of crucial criteria, which often get overlooked

How to Choose the Best Kitchen Flooring for Your Home

Kitchen flooring should be resilient. This is a place where you are going to be using lots of liquids at varying temperatures. As a result, it can easily get damaged. You would never choose a carpet in your kitchen for precisely this reason!

At the same time though, you also want to ensure that your kitchen flooring looks the part. Kitchens play a huge role in improving the value of your property and can make a home that much more or less appealing. You’re going to be spending a lot of time cooking away at the stove, so you may as well make this a pleasant experience with the best kitchen flooring!

Here are some options that can work very well.


Wood flooring is a strong option to give your kitchen an enhanced look with texture and color variation. Wood flooring adds value to your home and requires little maintenance. Potential home buyers look for wood flooring due to product durability and the “timeless” look offered with wood flooring.

Solid hardwood floors and engineered wood floors offer a variety of looks and are available in many styles. Certain woods hold onto the temperature more – making it warmer underfoot. It also causes slightly less damage to whatever lands on it!

A variety of textures are offered with different species of wood. You will find anything from smooth, satin finishes to a distressed, rustic look. New and old colors will help blend the new floor into your remodeled kitchen. Choose from styles that enhance your golden-oak cabinetry, or bring out rustic tones with a higher variation.

Ceramic tiles are a popular choice in kitchens, as they provide a range of different styles and are very strong and resilient. Tile materials are very resilient, require little maintenance, and are environmentally friendly for your home.

Ceramic tiles are extremely versatile in terms of their look and style. You can get small tiles with detailed patterns for instance, or larger tiles with more natural patterns to emulate stone. 12”x24” floor tiles can show mid, medium, or high variation in color.

Compliment your backsplash tile with a contrasting 12”x24” floor tile or strengthen your kitchen aesthetic with a patterned-installation of floor tile. Our sales team will help guide you and can explain the differences between potential patterns including herringbone, 1/3” stagger, or straight-stack installation.


Finally, vinyl plank is a great choice for your kitchen flooring that provides you with a resilient type of flooring, a warmer texture underfoot, an affordable price point, and a range of designs.

The best type of vinyl flooring for your kitchen is Luxury Vinyl Tiling or LVT. This type of flooring is versatile in terms of the pattern you choose, and very attractive to look at. High-performing solutions resist dents, wear, stains & moisture.

Vinyl plank can be installed directly on concrete (in basements) and in the rest of your home. Quality vinyl products offer cushioned-backing systems that help insulate the room for sound and temperature. This type of flooring is also very easy to clean and requires little maintenance.
