Flooring Ideas for Kitchens
You spend a lot more time in your kitchen than you think. It is where you prepare and make meals, do homework, pay bills, and spend time with family and friends. It is important to have a floor that is durable and easy to clean but also stylish. Many kitchen floors today are made to be stain resistant, water resistant and wear resistant to stand up to everyday life. Luxury vinyl floors are pet proof and kid safe. In addition, they are easy to clean. Each luxury vinyl floor features unique characteristics that play a role in how the floor will function in your home.
Luxury vinyl flooring also makes the perfect bathroom floor. A waterproof luxury vinyl floor will protect your bathroom subfloor, and even add a pop of style. You can choose a traditional tile look luxury vinyl floor, or you can be different and put a wood look floor in your bathroom to add warmth and a sense of luxury.
Benefits of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Hardwood and tile floors provide a timeless look to kitchens, but a luxury vinyl floor allows you to have the same natural, detailed look with greater durability. Unlike a hardwood floor, a luxury vinyl floor can handle frequent, heavy foot traffic and is incredibly easy to maintain, all you have to do is wipe down spills and occasionally sweep your floors. Luxury vinyl flooring is also more comfortable underfoot than a traditional tile floor.
You can come to expect spills and accidents in kitchens. Having a floor that is durable and easy to clean will make your cooking and entertaining process that much easier on you. Most luxury vinyl options are made with water resistant properties, but there are also luxury vinyl floors that are completely waterproof. We offer COREtec and Invincible™ H2O, both of which are totally waterproof luxury vinyl floors that are perfect for your kitchen. For instance, Invincible H2O uses an advanced locking system that provides a watertight seal, protecting your subfloors. COREtec Plus is a floating floor with a cork underlayment. This construction uses a rigid plank technology to prevent swelling, expanding, and swelling when exposed to water.
