Kitchen Flooring: Wood,Stone & Vinyl, What is Best For You?

Are you ready to redesign your kitchen? If yes, we are here to help you pick a suitable, durable, stylish flooring material for your kitchen.

The three types of kitchen flooring you can choose are: wood, stone and vinyl flooring. Wood and stone are natural materials with natural tones and textures that will always be in demand for their ability to be portrayed as both modern and classic. But what are the pros and cons of each type of flooring material? Read below to find out!

The Advantages & Disadvantages of Wood

Wood advantages are its beautiful and natural tones and textures. Wood can go with any design. It still has disadvantages. Wood is hard to keep clean. Grease and grime easily build up in the grain of wood. The most effective cleaning of wood is often hands and knees scrubbing and brushing. Also the treatments done to protect the wood material will eventually wear off. When the treatment wears off, the surface is vulnerable to staining that can only be removed by sanding down an entire floor.

The Advantages & Disadvantages of Stone

Stone flooring is an elegant and natural flooring material. But similar to wood, stone flooring has a textured finish vulnerability to dirt build up and can be stained when a protective coating wears through. Stone floors are heavy and can be structurally problematic. Stone is also cold underfoot during winter and under-floor heating can be expensive and disruptive.

Vinyl Flooring Benefits

If any of the above information concerns you, you might want to get vinyl flooring. Vinyl flooring comes with a range of benefits. Vinyl flooring has a smooth surface that allows it to be an easier surface to clean in comparison with wood and stone flooring. Vinyl flooring is hard wearing material and you can easily tell when your flooring has finally worn through its protective coating because the pattern will disappear. Vinyl flooring also comes in a range of wonderful colors and design so you can be creative with your kitchen design.
