Laminate: One of the most common types of flooring used nowadays, Laminate flooring has come a long way from the two tone square print designs of the late 80‘s and early 90‘s. Now with modern manufacturing processes, laminate flooring is available in many different colours and designs - some of the imitation wood designs available are of exceptional quality. Laminate is affordable, reasonably easy to fit by yourself (although it is always best to use the services of a professional fitter) and is waterproof. One of the major cons of laminate flooring is that it can wear easily in areas of high traffic.
Stone: Stone, slate and tile flooring is becoming increasingly popular amongst homeowners. While the cost of some of the different stone and tile varieties is still expensive when compared to a material such as laminate, the price has become, overall, more affordable. Maintenance should be considered when choosing a stone or tile floor - natural stone is porus and as such requires increased care and attention (including regular sealing), whereas porcelain or ceramic tiles require very little maintenance.
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.
