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.
Installing tiles is a difficult job. It requires precision and most people would not rather learn how to do it in fear that they might make several mistakes during the learning process. However, tiling is actually easy if you know the basics and necessary steps in executing the installation process. You can actually save a lot of money in doing this on your own rather than hiring a professional to do it for you. As long as you stick with dos and don‘ts of the tiling task, this activity might actually be rather entertaining than confusing for you.
If you want to use limestone, remember it is a porous stone and must be sealed upon installation and then twice a year. Limestone is a natural stone and offers an Old World look to it, however, if the maintenance for it is not something you want to undertake, I would suggest finding another flooring material for your kitchen.
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.
Modern kitchen flooring options: For more modern kitchens, homeowners can try using resins and glass. Resins are great for spaces with irregular shapes and sizes. The material comes in liquid form and is poured onto the base, creating a single continuous piece of flooring. You can choose to add glass beads as insets to create a shiny, textured finish.
Wood is a great and popular choice for the floor in the kitchen. Upkeep is fairly minimal and it can create a wonderful warm look to your kitchen. You can match the color of the wood floor to the cabinets in the kitchen, or go for a lighter or darker shade compared to the cabinets. Wood flooring can be distressed as mentioned earlier, to help high the dings that may occur. Many of the pre-finished wood flooring options today can easily withstand heavy traffic and even water stains. There are also high-pressured plastic laminates which can be an alternative to the wood floor, but offer a similar look for less money.
