What Should You Look for in a Kitchen Floor?
When it comes to your kitchen, it definitely isn’t the cleanest space in your home. You are constantly cooking and making food, so things will drop and find crevices to roll into. You’ll want a floor that has multiple functions to make your life easier. Having an easy to clean floor is probably the most important quality in a kitchen floor. You’ll also want something that is either very water resistant, or better yet totally waterproof. That means you can spill all the milk you want an no one has to cry. Durability is also an important characteristic. A floor that can handle a lot of foot traffic as well as heavy appliances should be at the top of your wish list.
Below are a few examples of floors we think are great for kitchens.

Laminate is known as the first hardwood alternative flooring option. Laminate, unlike hardwood, is composed of manmade materials, so they are less susceptible to moisture damage. Laminate floors feature a protective wear layer at the top and can resist scratches and scuffs, and are very easy to clean.Shop Laminate
Tile is the traditional kitchen flooring option. Tile is naturally a water resistant flooring product, and can withstand heat and heavy foot traffic. It is a great option for kitchen flooring because it is very easy to clean, and with the right glaze, can be stain resistant.Shop Tile
