A compact kitchen with medium tone flooring.

The kitchen floor needs to be durable enough to take on the spills, heat, fallen utensils, and increased foot traffic. The kitchen is a space that’s utilized many times a day. In fact, if you’re part of a large household, you’ll probably find someone in the kitchen at any time of the day.

Therefore, choosing the right kitchen flooring is crucial. Here are some of the flooring options we recommend to clients.


Hardwood floors add to the luxurious look and feel of your home. They do require more care than other flooring options, but the look they achieve cannot be compared. Since it is susceptible to moisture and stains, hardwood flooring in the kitchen is recommended for homeowners who don’t have children and pets.


Bamboo is a hard-wearing and long-lasting wooden floor option. It’s actually better than hardwood, and its manufacturing process makes it water-resistant. It’s also less likely to experience water damage like warping and swelling. Bamboo is soon becoming the top flooring option as it’s more sustainable to use too.

Ceramic tiles

Ceramic tiles are glazed and cured in a high-temperature oven, reinforcing their make. It’s extremely durable, impervious, and an all-around great material to use in the kitchen. Ceramic tiles are resistant to heat and breakage under normal conditions too. They’re available in a wide range of colours and textures, so you can easily find something to match your aesthetic.

Natural stone tile

Natural stone tiles are incredibly hard, making them a durable and long-lasting flooring option for the kitchen. Some natural stone tiles you can choose from include marble, granite, limestone and sandstone. They add a luxurious look to the kitchen and give the kitchen a unique appearance. Natural stone flooring also increases your home value for resale. Make sure you get natural stone tiles sealed regularly to prevent any stains from penetrating the stone, along with liquids.
