At Elite Tech, we believe in working together with our clients to help them realize their vision for a dream kitchen. However, we also understand that envisioning what a completed kitchen looks like from scratch can be a bit intimidating.
Operating from the principle that unity of idea and design is the first requisite in any kitchen remodeling project, we help you to see everything in your kitchen as part of a unified whole. This goes beyond “does my flooring match my countertops.” We dig deep to understand your lifestyle, how you intend to use your kitchen, as well as your aesthetic preferences. From top to bottom, our designers help you create a kitchen that’s uniquely “you.”
One of the most important things to consider when designing a new kitchen is your style preferences. If you want a modern/industrial looking kitchen, then you’ll want to find the type of flooring that best matches that feeling.
How Much Maintenance You Are Willing to Do
Let’s face it, spills happen in the kitchen. Quite possibly more than they do in any other room in your home. When considering kitchen flooring, you’ll want to select one that’s resistant to stains, water, and grease to minimize the amount of cleaning you’ll have to do.
How You Plan to Use Your Kitchen
If you’re on your feet for a long period of time, you might find that certain types of flooring are too hard and uncomfortable for prolonged use. You’ll also want to think about the amount of floor traffic and the type of wear and tear that could occur (i.e. pets).
What Your Budget Is
After you’ve considered the items above, it’s time to sit down and consider your budget. What flooring options meet your needs and how much do you have to spend to get them. Remember, that there’s a lot that goes into your kitchen renovation project, so make sure you don’t break the bank with just the flooring.
One of the best, and also most paralyzing, things about kitchen flooring is that there are so many options available to choose from. Below we’ll talk about some of the most popular flooring options, as well as give some of their advantages and drawbacks.
Hardwood flooring is considered to be the premium option, and for good reason. Hardwood offers a luxurious feel that never goes out of style. It offers a great degree of customization, allowing you to choose from a variety of species, textures, and colors. There are even engineered hardwood options if you’re looking to save a bit of money.
While hardwood flooring is resistant to spills and stains (you can even refinish and restain hardwood for additional longevity), you need to be careful to never leave standing water. You’ll also want to invest in window treatments to protect your flooring from sun damage.
One of the most attractive things about laminate flooring lies in its ability to mimic hardwood. In fact, even experts have trouble telling the difference between the real thing and high-end laminates!
Laminate flooring stands up well to spills, pet claws, and heavy foot traffic. In short, it is extremely durable and requires little maintenance. It also comes with a lower price tag. However, unlike hardwood flooring, laminate cannot be sanded or refinished when it is deeply scratched or grooved. It must be replaced entirely.
While vinyl flooring is thought of as one of the economical kitchen flooring choices, that doesn’t mean it looks cheap and basic. Unlike vinyl flooring of the past, updated engineering allows for a wide variety of textures and colors that give a more realistic appearance. You can have textures that mimic wood, leather, and slate.
Vinyl can come in sheets, tiles, or planks for an even greater degree of customization. Many of them are even imbued with antimicrobial protection, which helps prevent the growth of mold and bacteria.
Tile is an extremely versatile type of flooring and can be crafted from a wide variety of materials, including ceramic, stone, and porcelain.
Thanks to its ultra-hard surface, tile is heavily resistant to pet damage and stains from food. However, one of the major drawbacks to tile flooring’s hardness is that it can be weary to stand on for long periods of time. You’ll also want to make sure that it’s properly sealed to ensure water resistance.
