Flooring Styles to Accentuate Kitchen Designs

Touchable textures with luxurious looks – The raw beauty of natural stone flooring never goes out of style but until recently, stone flooring wasn’t practical in any kitchen design. Luxury vinyl tile changed all that by capturing the touchable textures and vibrant color depths found in authentic stone flooring. LVT looks in slate, travertine, and marble are appealing to the eye and warmer and softer underfoot than actual stone floors.

Modern take on classic wood flooring – With the popularity of open floor plans, kitchens are becoming the new living rooms in today’s homes. Better-engineered wood is making hardwood flooring a practical choice for kitchen designs. You get the warmth and rich character of natural wood, perfectly balanced with effortless maintenance, thanks to newer, extremely durable finishes.

Look for lighter shades, like natural maple to brighten up any kitchen. For a new country kitchen look, hand-scraped and distressed wood surfaces   accommodate the cozy touch you want to capture. Laminate flooring offers unique wood looks in a DIY-friendly alternative.

Unexpected Finishes – Unusual and unexpected finishes serve as a style contrast to the traditional kitchen decor. Make a unique and lasting impression with suede-look vinyl sheet. The low gloss surface conveys the look of expensive leather flooring plus delivers the durability, cost, and easy care of vinyl. Stained concrete is another innovative surface look that can be affordably achieved without the mess and expense of a custom installation. The sleek, modern style of stained concrete-look vinyl sheet will take center stage in your kitchen design.

Whatever your kitchen design, give it a new interpretation of excitement with a floor that adds a distinctive flavor.
