The kitchen is the central hub of the home and the place where everyone tends to congregate. When selecting kitchen flooring, it is essential to consider factors such as waterproofing, impact resistance, fade and scratch resistance, as well as comfort underfoot. The kitchen is a high-traffic area that is prone to spills, dropped objects, and constant foot traffic, making it crucial to choose a flooring option that can withstand these challenges. Kitchens need to have durable, extremely comfortable underfoot for standing long hours, 100% waterproof with high impact, scratch and slip resistance flooring.
Unlike other rooms in the home, the kitchen gets used daily – either for food storage and preparation, group or family dining, or just as a rallying point for activities. Kitchens take a beating unlike any other room – save maybe the bathroom. It’s no coincidence that both are regularly exposed to moisture. From washing dishes, sinks, cooking, ice makers/refrigerators, to regular foot traffic, moisture is a real consideration that affects every surface in the kitchen, especially the floor. When choosing flooring for the kitchen, waterproof is key.
Due to the number of kid, adult, and pet feet meandering through the kitchen each day, a durable floor is also critical. Many kitchens double as a “mudroom” with an exterior entrance and all the fun, dirt, debris, and moisture one could track from the outside to beat up your floor.
Additionally, like in a bathroom, all that moisture on a hard surface can be an accident waiting to happen. Many waterproof flooring options get extremely slippery when moisture is applied to them. Non-slip options should be a consideration for any flooring installed in a kitchen.
