How To Choose The Best Flooring For Your Kitchen

There are many different flooring choices available for your kitchen — so many it can be overwhelming and difficult to narrow it down to one choice. If you’re like most of us and have a hard time making the right decision, then read on as we compile a list of a few excellent flooring choices for your kitchen.


Are you concerned about the environment and want an eco-friendly kitchen flooring material? If so, then Bamboo flooring might be right for you.

Bamboo is one of the oldest materials known to man. It’s an extremely eco-friendly material that can grow fast anywhere in the world.

Bamboo looks like wood, but it’s not wood. It’s a fast growing grass that can be easily changed to look like light or dark wood species. Some types of bamboo are extremely hard and strong. Bamboo is also slightly more resistant to water damage and stains than traditional woods. And the best part about Bamboo flooring is it’s very cost effective.

Porcelain Tile

If you’re looking for a standard tile flooring material, but want something that’s a little more unique, try a porcelain tile kitchen floor. Porcelain tile flooring is not the same as it was 20 years ago. Today’s technology allows manufactures to get extremely creative with tile designs and patterns.

Porcelain tile can be manufactured to look like hardwood flooring, without the moisture issues that come with having genuine hardwood in a kitchen.


While a porcelain tile floor made to look like wood is very nice, if you really like the look and feel of hardwood flooring then there could be no other substitute for you.

Wood flooring is a great option for a kitchen because it’s warm, inviting and really comfortable under foot. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it’s also a very easy material to maintain and overtime will increase the value of your home.


Looking for another type of material that’s eco-friendly and offers comfort when standing for long periods of time? Why not try cork.

Cork is made from natural tree bark and has lots of air pockets, which give it a soft, cushiony surface for standing or walking on. If you’re looking for durability, cork is a very durable material that can longer than traditional hardwoods. If you’re looking for a variety of colors, cork is available in many different natural tones as well as a few man made colors.


Granite is one of the most popular natural stone flooring materials. Most people are drawn to granite because it has a very luxurious and elegant appearance.

If you’re looking for something that’s going to be long lasting, very durable, and has ease of maintenance, then granite is the right material for you. Just keep in mind while granite does have a lot of wonderful qualities, it is a material that can be difficult to install, very expensive, and slippery when wet.
