ABOUT KITCHEN FLOORING
A kitchen is the hearth of a home, and whether it’s a well-loved and vibrant room in your home or a decorative space to store your take-out boxes, your choice of flooring gives the room brightness and character.
Kitchens often see frequent traffic and moisture: spills, water spray from the sink, coffee stains and nonstop crumbs from food prep. You need a multipurpose floor that can keep up with daily life while maintaining a modern, uplifting atmosphere.
Whatever you’re searching for, you’ll find it at LA.
KITCHEN FLOORING TRENDS
Countertop materials are a huge talking point when kitchen interior trends come up, but your choice of flooring is equally important. When it comes to creating a warm, inviting room for food prep and entertaining, a clean-cut floor can add an industrial vibe or create a classy cooking space.
Modern homes are leaning back into traditional wood floors, but with today’s technology, almost any material can be constructed to give the appearance of wood. That’s good news for anyone who wants contemporary style without the maintenance of true hardwood. Stone floors like marble and tile also add a modern flair to any home design—especially when paired with complimentary countertops.
KITCHEN FLOORING CONSIDERATIONS
Your kitchen flooring will be prone to a lot of mess: sink splash, food spills and constant traffic at all hours. Any flooring in your bathroom is prone to leaking water lines, shower spray and even toilet overflow. You’ll need a surface underfoot that can not only capture your kitchen style, but also maintain a safe, nonslip floor for your
most creative cooking.
- Is this floor easy to clean and durable?
- Will this floor stain?
- How much work has to go into maintaining my floor?
- Does my flooring choice match my cabinets and fixtures?
OUR TIPS FOR KITCHEN FLOORING
Save carpets for the bedroom. To create your ideal kitchen, we recommend browsing our selections of solid hardwood, as well as wood-look vinyl and laminate.
Tile and stone flooring can be a great option for your kitchen, but remember that these can be incredibly hard surfaces. If you drop a dish on vinyl, you won’t harm the floor and might not even break the dish. Ceramic or stone flooring will shatter any dropped dishes, and you risk chipping or cracking the floor in dramatic cases.
With that in mind, choose the floor that’s right for your usage and home design. Whatever your selection, LA has a quality flooring solution to suit your lifestyle.
