Choosing Products: flooring

April 26, 2018

You’ll be standing a lot while working in the kitchen, so choose flooring that’s comfortable as well as stylish. Many options are available in a variety of prices and looks

 

 

 

BAMBOO:

This renewable grass offers the look of wood. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly option, make sure the factory finish is formaldehyde-free.

 

CORK:

Made from the bark of cork oak trees, this ecofriendly option is quiet and soft underfoot. If it’s properly sealed, it can withstand moisture.

 

LAMINATE:

This budget-friendly flooring choice can be a convincing, easy-care substitute for wood, tile, or stone. Choose planks or tiles. It’s one of the easiest flooring types to install yourself.

 

LINOLEUM:

Made from linseed oil, cork dust, wood flour, tree resins, ground limestone, and pigments, this option is eco-friendly and soft underfoot. It’s available in a variety of colors.

 

STONE:

This natural material adds upscale charm to a but it can be slippery when wet and harder underfoot, and it often requires professional installation. A stone’s porosity—the amount and size of its pores—affects its strength and stain resistance. For lower maintenance in a high-traffic kitchen, choose a hard stone with low porosity, such as granite or slate. Softer, more porous stone materials, such as marble, limestone, and travertine, require regular sealing to reduce staining and scratching.

 

TILE:

A classic choice for kitchens, tile comes in a variety of shapes and sizes that can provide an opportunity for customization. Porcelain tiles are dense and very durable; their scratch-resistant surface withstands spills and pet accidents. Tile is harder underfoot than some other flooring types and can be slippery.

 

VINYL:

Available in sheets, tiles, and planks, vinyl flooring shows off a variety of looks, including wood and stone, but is more affordable. It’s soft underfoot, durable, and moisture-resistant. Chose vinyl with a thick urethane top coat for maximum durability.

 

WOOD:

This flooring type offers a classic look that works in a variety of decorating styles. Solid wood is one continuous piece of wood from top to bottom so it offers a thick material for sanding and refinishing, but it’s susceptible to moisture. Engineered wood has a thin top layer of hardwood secured to a sturdy plywoodlike base layer. It’s less expensive than solid wood and is less likely to be affected by humidity. Some hardwood (and bamboo) planks are coated with moisture-cured urethane enhanced with aluminum oxide. This high-tech finish is both moisture- and scratch-resistant.
