Kitchen Design – Flooring

A range of kitchen flooring to choose from can be daunting

As we all know there are all sorts of flooring and there are quite a few stunning floor possibilities that are never considered. For example:

  • Bamboo
  • Laminate Tiles
  • Rubber
  • Painted Concrete
  • Vinyl Tiles

Something that needs to be considered at the outset is how easy is it to look after & how does it wear. Also a very important point that is sometimes overlooked is your legs & back. Remember that very hard floors like stone, concrete or ceramics do take it’s toll if you are standing for long periods of time when preparing food.

Remember that strong colour & intricate pattern can dwarf a room, also the way timber boards are laid can widen or lengthen the visual perspective.

It is also important that the kitchen sits well on the floor and delivers the right look & ambience. The floor is to do it’s thing and the kitchen it’s thing, they both enhance one another.

Sometimes a more rustic look is desired such as a timber cottage with a timber floor, timber kitchen & timber rafters. Sometimes a modern brick veneer home has a den or study or snooker room done this way.
