Q&A Corner – Kitchen Flooring

Q: I want to remodel my kitchen.  Are there any flooring products I should avoid using?

A:  There are a couple of different theories about appropriate kitchen flooring.  A few things to keep in mind is that this floor will be more susceptible to water damage and high traffic.  Whether it be from a glass of red wine or from a possible flood from your dishwasher, this floor should be able to stand up to some abuse.  A few floor types we  recommend are natural stone, porcelain or ceramic tiles, solid or engineerd wood and for the ‘greenies’ out there rubber or linoleum (check out Forbo for some cool options!)  A few floor types to avoid are laminate, cork and vinyl.

This birch flooring extended from the living room directly into the kitchen.  It looks great next to the new maple cabinets!

    Love the engineered! We put it in the closets and are headed to the rest of the house with it! Kitchen, Dining, Living and bedrooms! Enrty, laundry and baths are all getting the stone treatment!
