Types of Flooring
One of the first considerations when selecting materials for your new floor should be whether you want it to match the rest of the home. Consistency brings a contemporary, streamlined vibe, while mixing and matching adds an element of intrigue.
Below, we explore some different flooring ideas to choose from.
A hardwood floor made from timber or a similar material is a popular choice for a cohesive look. You can decide between polished lacquered or rustic and natural, with varying finishes, tones and grains available.
Luxury Vinyl Plank
If you’re a savvy shopper looking for a cost-effective flooring design, luxury vinyl plank is ideal. It’s almost as water-resistant and durable as other options, and you can even have it installed so it looks like hardwood or tile-like squares with grout.
Whether you prefer porcelain tiles or ceramic, opting for a tile floor is one of the safest and longest-lasting options. While wood and vinyl offer some water resistance, tiles can withstand moisture, dents and scratches like these ultra-hard surfaces.
Although we’d never advise a fully carpeted kitchen, area rugs can be a great idea for keeping your feet warm. If you opt for a tile floor, the only real downside is that they can be cold underfoot. Adding a runner or rug can keep you comfy while you chop veggies or prepare breakfast.
