Kitchen Flooring

Flooring lays the groundwork for every other element of your kitchen design.

From hardwood or laminate to tile or luxury vinyl, kitchen flooring has to be functional, efficient, comfortable, and clean. Beyond that, it has to look good. You should love whatever type of kitchen flooring you use, and it’s a good idea to choose something that’ll stay trendy for years to come.

Every family — and every home — is different. We’ve worked with many clients to help them select the best kitchen flooring for their unique needs. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Luxury vinyl plank flooring: This material is fully moisture-proof and impervious to wear and tear. It’s completely resistant to water damage and most stains — something kitchens see often. When it comes to appearance, luxury vinyl plank flooring is attractive. It comes in a variety of colors, textures, grains, and sizes.
  • Hardwood flooring: Available in a variety of grains, textures, colors, and sizes, this type of kitchen flooring holds up well over time and is easy to care for (as long as the type you select is high quality and installed and sealed properly). Bonus: Hardwood almost always adds value to a home and is ideal for resale.
  • Tile flooring: This is a classic, functional and appealing material that many homeowners gravitate towards, and for good reason. There are so many options with colors, patterns, and sizes. Many homeowners choose ceramic tile because it’s stain and spill-resistant — perfect for the kitchen environment. Messes are fairly easy to clean up and it’s not high maintenance.
  • Natural stone: This is a one-of-a-kind, beautiful way to finish a kitchen, and it’s elegant, classy, and sophisticated. Marble looks wonderful with almost any color scheme and style, too.
