How to Choose Kitchen Flooring

santa clarita vinyl floorWhen making your choice for kitchen flooring in your Santa Clarita home, there are some factors you will want to keep in mind. Wear and tear, budget limitations, color, and design are all factors when determining the right one for you.

Think Outside of the Box

It always happens when people start considering new kitchen floor – they recognize the floors in the rest of their home could use an upgrade too. Slow down, one project at a time! However, it is wise to consider choosing flooring that will look great in adjoining areas when you upgrade them later. From a design standpoint, tying your house together with common flooring is a great way to create a sense of connection between spaces that would otherwise feel secluded.

Think About Nature

Kitchen flooring is like every other trend – consistently changing.  What is in today may be gone tomorrow so it is best to choose more natural colors and materials that stay classic over time. Marble and stone give you all the benefits of stone flooring tiles with a softer, natural look. Porcelain tiles are also available in earth tones and rougher finishes. Laminate and wood flooring have also adjusted to fill natural flooring requirements.

Think Sensible

Everyone’s first instinct is to buy what looks good, but it’s also important to take into account practical aspects as well. Two major concerns are budget and wear and tear. If you have children or own pets, you know tend to be hard on your floors.  You might consider coarser stone tiles for lasting resilience. Certainly stay away from hardwood floors in your kitchen if you’re hard on flooring, since they can be scratched if you are not careful. If you choose porcelain tiles, choose a variety made tougher, some ceramic or porcelain tiles can chip easily under heavy use.
