Top flooring choices for your designer kitchen

When dreaming of your designer kitchen what comes to mind? An open plan design with a fabulous social area? Top of the range appliances? A gorgeous kitchen island for food prep and dining around? It’s very easy to get carried away with the design of your new kitchen without even thinking about the flooring – but don’t underestimate how important it is to get this right too. Your choice will not only be affected by your preferred style and colour scheme, you’ll also need to consider your lifestyle too and the practicalities of different flooring types. All sound a bit too complicated? At Kitchen Design Centre, we’re here to break it all down for you…

Vinyl flooring

While some may find vinyl old fashioned and boring, there are some statement, stylish designs to be found. However, these don’t always come cheap. Whatever design you choose though, the material itself is hard to beat. It’s easy to maintain, very difficult to stain, and generally really durable too. You can also find vinyl that resembles other materials – for example, wood-effect vinyl flooring.

Ceramic tiles

This type of flooring has been popular in Europe for decades. It’s also become more popularity in the UK too over the last 10 years or so and is an affordable, attractive, easy to maintain solution. Ceramic tiles are stain-resistant and sealed tile and grout are also water resistant. In fact, the only real disadvantages of tiles are the echo-y effect they give a room and nippy feet!

Slate flooring

For a real country kitchen look, slate is a great option. You can stick to traditional black slate, surrounded with pale grout, or for something more modern, why not get creative and match the shade of the grout to the tiles or accent colour you’ve chosen for your kitchen.

Wooden flooring

For a warm and timeless look, you may like to choose wooden flooring. While, solid wood flooring isn’t recommended for kitchens because of the inevitable moisture and temperature fluctuations, engineered wood flooring works really well. It’s easy to maintain, durable and can add real character to a modern kitchen.

Laminate flooring

The benefit of laminate is that you can pick virtually any design you wish and get a replica of a wood or stone pattern of your choice in your kitchen for a snip of the price. Typically, this sort of flooring works out relatively cheap and often comes with a guarantee for 25 years or more. It’s simple to install, easy to look after and exceptionally scratch and stain-resistant too!

Marble flooring

For a chic and unique look, why not opt for elegant marble? It has a crispness and bright, light design that makes it ideal for modern homes and that monochrome look, as well as period properties.

Stone flooring

The rustic, farmhouse feel of stone flooring is a popular option these days. It’s natural, easy to maintain and long lasting – but does tend to be cold under foot. If you opt for stone, large floor tiles can add the illusion of space in a smaller kitchen, as can tiles of varying shades and sizes.

Led by Design: A Sleek, Luxurious, Contemporary KitchenDesign was of paramount importance for Derick and Mandy when it came to choosing a kitchen company to replace the kitchen in their Barrowford home.They approached three other kitchen companies but Kitchen Design Centre and Designer Suzanne Ryan were the obvious choice: Kitchen Design Centre's design focus, instead of a heavy sales approach impressed them and they were delighted with Suzanne's first design, feeling she understood the brief to create a high-end kitchen.Suzanne changed the layout of the kitchen space completely. Their existing kitchen lacked flair, consisting of a peninsular-based layout which resulted in a lot of wasted space. She totally reconfigured it, creating a much more open space and introduced a large island in the middle of the kitchen which not only creates a focal point in the room but also provides the perfect dining area.To read more about this project, head to the link in the bio.
