Kitchens are one of the most used rooms in a house resulting in a lot of foot traffic. If your kitchen floor is stained, dented, or curled it may be time to reinvest in your house with a kitchen remodel! One of the first steps in a kitchen remodel is selecting the correct flooring to match your style. 

4 Great Flooring Options for Your New Kitchen 

The world of kitchen flooring offers various maintenance, durability, and budget options for vinyl, laminate, linoleum, and hardwood to meet your needs. Your needs will differ in selecting the correct floor for your kitchen based on the wear and tear your household experiences. 


Durability: ★★★☆☆   

Maintenance:  ★★★★★  

Cost: ★★★★★  

Vinyl flooring, made from PVC, has become increasingly popular for its versatility and affordability. It’s offered in tile and plank formats that replicate the look of pricier materials like hardwood and stone. The maintenance is easy to clean and is waterproof. However, vinyl may be prone to scratches when subjected to heavy appliances moving. 


Durability: ★★★☆☆

Maintenance: ★★★★☆ 

Cost: ★★★★☆

Laminate flooring is better at imitating the authentic look of real wood or stone compared to vinyl. Vinyl consists entirely of synthetic materials, while laminate features a wood fiberboard core. Laminate is still low maintenance and easy to clean but is more inclined to have moisture concerns. Fortunately, laminate is more scratch-resistant than vinyl. 


Durability: ★★★☆☆

Maintenance: ★★★★☆

Cost: ★★★★☆

Linoleum is composed of natural materials like linseed oil, wood flour, and pigments. It’s resilient and can withstand heavy foot traffic, but it may be susceptible to water damage and staining if not properly sealed. Also, linoleum flooring provides a clean and easy-to-maintain surface as a moderately priced flooring option. 


Durability: ★★★★★

Maintenance: ★★☆☆☆

Cost: ★★☆☆☆

For those seeking timeless elegance and longevity, hardwood flooring is a perfect choice. Upfront, hardwood floors can cost more than the options above, but hardwood floors are a timeless investment because they can be updated and refinished instead of being replaced entirely. To further enhance its durability and moisture, sealers, coatings, and proper care are needed for hardwood floors.
