When embarking on a kitchen remodeling project, you’ll have a lot of big decisions to make, including which type of flooring to install. You want flooring that looks beautiful, but also holds up strongly against water, food stains, and foot traffic. At ABA Home Remodeling, we can take your desires and budget into consideration, and then make flooring recommendations accordingly. We’re highly experienced with kitchen floor installation in the greater Tempe, AZ area.
Popular Options for Kitchen Flooring
Hardwood might be more commonly associated with living rooms, but it’s also a popular option for kitchens. It holds up strongly against foot traffic, and when a sealer/polyurethane finish is applied to it, it can strongly resist moisture. And of course, hardwood is highly attractive, providing a rich and rustic look. Desirable types of kitchen hardwood flooring include hickory, maple, and white oak.
Various types of tile flooring are also sought-after. Ceramic tile is quite popular because it is strongly water-resistant and is commonly coated with a stain-resistant glaze that allows you to easily clean up food and beverage spills. Natural stone is more costly, but is a beautiful and durable option for kitchen tile flooring. As natural stones, marble and granite offer unique and beautiful patterns that greatly heighten the kitchen’s aesthetic appeal.
If you’re looking for something more affordable, you could go with vinyl, linoleum, or concrete. Vinyl is quite budget-friendly and can be installed quickly, while also providing strong water-resistance. Linoleum looks similar to vinyl but is typically considered to be a more eco-friendly option because it is made from natural materials, whereas vinyl is manufactured using toxic chemicals. Concrete flooring can also be installed affordably using the existing slab. Stained concrete flooring has become popular among those who desire a modern-industrial aesthetic.
