Looking for a new kitchen floor? There are several material choices, but durability and ease of cleaning should both be taken into consideration before making your final decision. Wood, tile, and laminate floors are all good choices and offer different advantages.
Wood floors are very popular in Georgia as they can handle the high traffic of a busy kitchen.
The polyurethane finish guards against all kinds of liquid and moisture that inevitably find their way onto your kitchen floor.
Kitchen tiles are available in ceramic and stone in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and styles.
One thing to keep in mind is that tiles can be slippery when wet, so you have to be aware if you have children that they don’t run when the kitchen floor is wet.
If your sub-floor is old and prone to structural movement, tiles can crack. If your house if old you may want to consider replacing the sub-floor.
Laminate flooring imitates the style of hardwood and tile but costs less. It is extremely resistant to scratches and stains and is perfect for households with young children or pets.
The durability of laminate will give you the peace of mind knowing that spills will wipe right off, leaving you with flooring that looks new for years.
