Vinyl flooring can offer numerous styles and colors, either in tiles or sheets and is much less expensive. Cork is a versatile and durable material which is also available in various colors. Not only is it water-resistant, but can help reduce impact noise.
Stone and tile kitchen flooring options: Both stone and tile are ideal materials to consider if heavy traffic is expected. Stone is a great material to use if you intend to create a natural look in your home. It is a great way to create consistency and continuity if you use it on other areas within and outside the home. Some of the heavy favorites include sandstone, limestone and slate. Left untreated, some types of stones can develop unique tones and textures. As the rough feel of the stone may not always be a crowd favorite, porcelain tile is a better alternative. This is especially true for those who are looking for a more uniform and sleek finish.
Grouting: Allow time to dry after installing all your tiles on the floor. You can now start grouting afterwards. Some tiles like natural tiles, marble, slate, limestone, granite and porcelain should be sealed first before grouting. You can also use a specialized sealer to waterproof your tiles and make them more resistant to dirt and staining.
Nowadays however, the variety of affordable, good quality flooring available has increased tenfold and while you might be tempted to buy that beautiful stone floor you have seen in the showroom, you do need to ask if it will actually suit your requirements. Here we take a look at the pros and cons of four types of kitchen flooring.
One option is the hand-scraped, grooved, and other distressed flooring can be much more than just a statement of style. These types of flooring can help hide dings from jars hitting the floor as well as blending in with the general wear and tear a kitchen floor takes. There are styles that make it possible to easily do your own kitchen floor renovation because they can be clicked together and "float" in place without any nailing or gluing.
Until recently unless you were lucky enough to have a hardwood floor; the variety of materials available for kitchen flooring was restricted to just a few options - vinyl, laminate or waterproof carpet tiles. The possibility of using stone flooring was generally restricted to those with large budgets.
