Kitchens are most definitely the heart of the modern home and one of the major items new home owners look at when buying a home. Whether you are looking for a quick update to the kitchen you already have or are designing a whole new look for the kitchen in your home, the flooring you choose is the key element to achieving your required look and for making your kitchen usable. Changing the flooring in your kitchen can make a huge and immediate difference to the overall look of the room.
Before you decide on the flooring you want, make sure the construction of your existing floor is suitable for the type of flooring you’d like, if you are not sure about this then just pop in and see us at our flooring warehouse in North Shields just outside Newcastle and we can give you advice. You can choose any type of flooring for a kitchen but given that it is a high traffic area and has to be able to cope with lots of cleaning, spillages and water splashes the 3 best types of flooring for a kitchen are listed below:
Vinyl Kitchen Flooring:
Vinyl flooring is great for kitchen updates as it is comfortable, warm underfoot, and one of the most cost-effective options. Vinyl kitchen flooring can come in a huge range of colours and patterns, it is a very durable surface that won’t fade. We can advise you on the correct grade for your kitchen and can even lay it for you. We do suggest that you get your vinyl flooring fitted by one of our master craftsmen as badly fitting vinyl will peel at the edges.
Laminate Kitchen Flooring:
Laminate flooring is a fantastic option for kitchen as it creates an authentic, real wood plank effect at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. Laminates are tough so they’re ideal for busy households with lots of traffic in the kitchen. To create the appearance of real wood floorboards, choose a laminate with bevelled edges that form a v shape between the planks when they’re butted up together. Talk to the experts at Adamms Carpets to get the right laminate flooring for your kitchen.
Buying a real hardwood floor is a beautiful option for your new kitchen floor. Real Hardwood flooring can be a more expensive option but it will add value to your home as it is the luxury and most hardwearing option and you can be sure that we have the best and cheapest prices for hardwood flooring in the North East. Unlike laminates, if your floor gets damaged, you don’t have to replace the boards – you can simply sand them down and treat them again.
Treat your new hardwood kitchen floor with a Polyurethane finish to make it easier to maintain and clean.
