Kitchen Flooring Options Sure to Impress

September 7, 2017

 When you're remodeling your kitchen, it's important to choose the right countertops and cabinets, but have you considered the impact the flooring will make? The best kitchen remodeling in Manhattan, NY, takes every detail into account, and flooring is one of the most important details. There are many great options for kitchen flooring, so it's important to not only know the aesthetic value of each material, but other factors like durability and maintenance. Here are some of the top flooring options to consider for impressive remodeling results.

Tile

Tile is a popular choice because there are so many beautiful, durable options to choose from. Here are a few of the most popular types.

 

  • Ceramic

 

Ceramic tile is made of clay materials that are molded into a tile. The basic types of ceramic tile are porcelain and non-porcelain. Non-porcelain tile is typically from brown, red, or white clay, while porcelain also contains 50% feldspar, which is a type of sand that turns into a glass-like material during bonding to hold the material together. Ceramic tile is a good choice for kitchens because it's durable and resists water and stains.

 

  • Slate

 

Slate is very durable and dense because it's a type of metamorphic rock. It has a more unique and dark-textured appearance than other natural stone tile options, which is what draws many people to it in addition to its durability.

 

  • Limestone

 

Limestone is a softer stone that can be easily stained or scratched in high-traffic kitchens. However, some people love its earthy appearance and the fact that it can be found in both dark and light shades.

 

  • Granite

 

Granite tile is a popular choice because of its unique mineral speckling and veining. It's also available in many colors while being very durable and scratch resistant.

 

Tile is typically finished in either natural, honed, or polished finish. Natural finishes are earthy and dull. A honed surface is finished, but not buffed so that it's smooth, but rather has a matte appearance that's good for slip prevention. Polished surfaces are more slippery and reflective, but keep the porous stone from absorbing liquids.
 

Wood

Wood is another timeless and popular choice for kitchen flooring that kitchen remodeling services frequently install. You can choose hardwood, which is durable and easy to clean and can be refinished. An alternative is engineered hardwood which is less expensive than hardwood, expands and contracts less than hardwood, and has more installation options. 

 Cork

Cork is made of tree bark, so it's beautiful, but much softer than wood flooring. It's slip-resistant and eco-friendly as well. Cork is also available in many colors and absorbs noise better than other flooring materials.

Concrete

Concrete floors are a low maintenance option that some people prefer because of their industrial look. Concrete floors can be stained or finished in different ways to get the look you want.
