Three Questions to Consider for Your Kitchen Flooring Renovation

Want to add a fresh new look to your kitchen?  You might want to consider new tile flooring.  While replacing your flooring may sound like a big job, it often costs less than replacing your countertops and cabinets and it can have a dramatic effect on the overall look of your space.

Flooring Choices

When choosing fashionable, yet functional new kitchen flooring, consider the following three questions:

1.) It’s all about location, right? When choosing new flooring for your kitchen, you must consider the room’s location in your home and the moisture level of this important space.  Kitchens connected to a garage or driveway may have more wet or muddy traffic.

2.) What’s the traffic pattern or flow in that room?  In most households, the kitchen is a very busy place, especially if you have pets and growing kids.  If that describes your family, consider durable materials that won’t dent or scratch.  You’ll want to look for flooring that is long lasting, easy to clean, and requires little maintenance.

3.) Is your kitchen bright with lots of natural light?  Or is it smaller with few windows? Those with brighter spaces can opt for darker color choices to add depth and warmth, while those with less light may want to consider lighter colors to help brighten the room.

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are usually the most popular choice, coming in a wide variety of designs and color schemes. Most notably, they are easy to maintain, clean, and are durable enough to stand the test of time in high traffic areas.   Wood-porcelain tiles give the look of real wood without all of the cumbersome maintenance real wood floors require.  The timeless look of wood flooring with improved durability and spill resistance can be found in porcelain tiles.
