Options for kitchen flooring are virtually limitless today. Such innovations in the industry have led to different kitchen flooring trends and there is now an array of choices that offer different benefits for your Albuquerque home. There are also some classic choices that have held up through the test of time and are worth considering for your kitchen remodel.
Here are four classic kitchen flooring trends to consider:
1. Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood doesn’t always work well in the kitchen since it can be exposed to a lot of water and become damaged. However, these days there are quality sealants that can improve the ability of hardwood to withstand water. Hardwood is an option that will always be in style! If you’re looking to spruce things up with a trendy option, try a whitewash, gray, or light brown wood.
2. Engineered Hardwoods
If you want the look of hardwood, but feel like solid wood is too much of an investment, engineered hardwood can be a good alternative! Engineered hardwood is extremely durable thanks to its plywood core and it is easier to install than solid hardwood. This is a great option if you’re looking for a high-quality, low-maintenance flooring material.
3. Innovative Ceramic or Porcelain Tile Floors
Porcelain and ceramic tile have long been popular kitchen floor trends, but today’s options are more creative and resilient than ever before. Beyond the traditional color schemes and patterns of the past, there are tiles that closely resemble wood grains and some even have textures that provide a greater realistic feel to the touch. Popular hues right now are distressed espressos, grays, and whites.
4. Luxury Vinyl Options
By far, luxury vinyl flooring is a top runner when it comes to kitchen flooring. Luxury vinyl flooring can resemble wood, tile, or marble to offer a contemporary or traditional look. Vinyl floorings benefits include its water resistance, realistic feel and the fact that it can feature a cork underlayment for cushioning. Furthermore, it can be installed directly over most types of floors as long as the floor is flat and solid.
