We love the versatility and look of tile, and it’s hard to beat tile’s durability and resistance to water. When it comes to tiling your kitchen, you have a wide variety of materials, shapes, and sizes to choose from. Whether you choose large format ceramic or porcelain, or beautiful slate or other natural stone, tile in your kitchen will provide you with a long lasting flooring that is both easy to maintain and beautiful to look at.
Solid and Engineered Hardwood
While there is some debate about whether or not you should install solid hardwoods in your kitchen, it is a popular choice for homeowners who love its warmth, durability, and classic design. When it comes to contact with moisture, fortunately most solid hardwoods can be treated with a durable finish that will help protect them from water and excess wear. For homeowners who want the look of hardwood with extra security, consider installing engineered hardwood instead. The high-density plywood base layer helps prevent expanding and warping, making it a suitable material for areas that come in contact with moisture. Engineered hardwood is available in a wide range of species as well, so you are sure to find the perfect wood floors for your design.
An important flooring option worth mentioning is luxury vinyl, which is available in both tile and plank formats. More homeowners are discovering just how great it looks and how easy it is to maintain. The vinyl construction provides you with a durable and water-resistant surface that is softer underfoot than other materials. Luxury vinyl tiles can closely imitate the look of more expensive natural stones, such as granite and marble, whereas vinyl planks replicate the look of beautiful hardwoods that you might hesitate to install in your kitchen otherwise.
