Floors are meant to be durable but comfortable, easy on the eye but beautiful in the space, and provide insulation whether you are cooling or heating your home. When your kitchen flooring begins to show wear and tear, it can become an eyesore for you and for visitors to your home. Updating your floors can improve the nuance of the space while also updating durability and overall comfort. Here are three recommended types of durable flooring that can help you upgrade your kitchen.
1.Tile – With multiple types of tile flooring, from vinyl to ceramic, tile flooring has become very popular. It is typically easy to install and maintain and can come with stain resistance that doesn’t require special cleaning solutions. Tile is also very versatile for kitchen flooring because of the various styles and colors available.
2.Wood – While it may seem like hardwood flooring in the kitchen would be a less favorable option, it actually provides beauty and durability. Especially if your home has hardwood floors in the other living spaces, incorporating them into the kitchen can provide continuity. Hardwood floors are now manufactured to be easy to install and never go out of style.
3.Travertine – A stone tile has the look of natural marble or limestone but provides advantages in its overall composition and color. Travertine is a naturally occurring stone, making it perfect if you like a “green” living space. This stone is also heat resistant and has a slightly rough surface, giving improved traction for spaces that are well-traveled, like the kitchen.
