Are You Renovating Your Kitchen Floor?

Homeowners who are updating their kitchens also need to think about replacing the existing floors. Maybe you have looked in designer magazines and found several kitchens that look stunning. However, the price of everything has stunned your wallet. For every expensive flooring idea you see in the upscale magazines, there is a less expensive product that looks almost just the same. Your experienced sales person at your local flooring store can become your best friend during your renovations.

Let's say picture number one is a beautiful traditional kitchen with dark hardwood floors. You can mimic the look with laminate which costs a fraction of what the wood floors would cost. And you can have it in the same dark stain.

If you have decided not to have tile or vinyl, you may want to consider a cork floor. Cork is a superior choice for kitchen floors because it is resilient, soft and helps reduce noise. Many recording studios are fully enveloped in cork to make them sound proof. If you have toddlers, crawling on a cork floor will feel better to them than crawling on hardwood or laminate.

Some up-and-comers like the cool feel of modern or industrial lines for their new kitchens. These homeowners may consider concrete floors. Concrete is non-porous so germs have nowhere to hide. It is very easy to maintain and can be stained in just about any color.

Let's talk about tile floors. One of the hottest looks today is Country French. Some of the more expensive ways to get a genuine Country French look will be with reclaimed roof tiles from France. For most homeowners on a budget that would be cost prohibitive. However, your flooring store can show you new tiles that have the aged look of the vintage roof tiles. Needless to say, these will be more budget-friendly.

People like to brag about their travertine tiles and floors because they are expensive and look just grand. They are available in many neutral tones and colors that will complement any palette. However, there are tiles that look like genuine travertine at a more budget-friendly price. Just ask your flooring store to show you samples.

How many earthy kitchens have you seen with brick or terra cotta tiles? This floor really makes a statement, especially about your bank account. No doubt both looks are fashionable and handsome. You would give your right arm to be able to afford either in your home. The happy news is that your local flooring store will have options available to you that appear close to the real thing without the real price tag.

Another choice you have is vinyl flooring for your kitchen. Today's vinyl is nothing like your grandmother's old linoleum. Also, it has changed names. It is called resilient flooring. It does not have to look cheap or inexpensive at all. Any pattern or color that you can dream of can be created with resilient flooring. With resilient flooring, realistic natural stones and woods can be imitated, and with today's improved technology, imitated almost exactly to what is found in nature. Designers can also create any pattern or combination of colors. This flexibility of style and design can be found in no other type of flooring product.
