Your kitchen is the command center of your home; you cook there, socialize there, and keep your calendar and important information there. If you’re considering a new kitchen floor, keep in mind these 4 tips to help you choose the right kitchen floor.

  • Find a floor that is easy to clean
    Whether you have kids or pets, keeping your floor clean can be a real challenge. Choose a floor that doesn’t require complex cleaning methods and one that will fit into your daily/weekly cleaning schedule. Luxury vinyl planks, sheet vinyl or laminate floors are good choices because light sweeping and mopping are easy to do.

  • Pick something that will hold up over time
    Your kitchen is the heart of your home which means it gets a lot of daily traffic. Choose a floor that will hold up to foot traffic, furniture moving across the surface, spills, pets and kids. Our Quick N Easy LooseLay Luxury Vinyl is known to be highly durable which means it will last for years to come..
  • Moisture Resistance
    A pot of water, spilled milk or dish washing accidents can happen more often than not in the kitchen. Look for flooring that can hold up to the occasional splish and splash. Tandem Luxury Vinyl is a completely waterproof product that will withstand the damage of spills.

  • Coordinate, Don’t Match
    The first things you see in a kitchen are the cabinets and the flooring. Try to pick flooring and cabinets that complement each other, not match exactly.  If you have warm honey-toned cabinetry, look for a darker toned floor and vice versa for dark colored cabinets. Cabinets and flooring that contrast create a visual appeal and an inviting space in your home.

    I like how you say that vinyl flooring stands up over time. It would make sense that if you are installing flooring in an area like the kitchen that sees a lot of traffic having something that will hold up is important. My sister is looking for new flooring during her whole home remodel, so she’ll have to consider the benefits of laminate vinyl flooring.

    My wife and I have been looking to redo some of the flooring in our home, and I think that vinyl could be a good option for us. I’m a big fan of how you talked about vinyl flooring being easy to clean. We’ve got a dog and 3 kids that make keeping the floors spotless hard, so making it easier to clean would be really helpful! Thanks for the suggestion!

    I think it’s true, the kitchen is definitely the heart of the home. My husband and I have been planning to re do our floors for the past few months, but we’ve never decided what pattern. We’ll have to hire a professional to help us decided what to do.
