How to Select the Best Floor Covering when Remodeling your Kitchen or Bath

There are a wide variety of flooring options available today for your kitchen or bathroom. When it comes time to remodel your kitchen or bathroom, you need to carefully consider how you want the finished product to look, as well as how much time and energy you want to put into its maintenance.

For example, hardwood flooring is an extremely popular type of flooring on the market today, but its use in the kitchen or bathroom can be problematic. If it regularly becomes wet, or stays wet for prolonged periods of time, or it is generally damp, hardwood flooring will eventually buckle and warp. Even water-treated hardwood flooring may buckle and warp over time due to the cumulative effects of always being wet, but there are some types of wood – such as Brazilian teak, treated with polyurethane – which hold up well over time in environments such as the kitchen or the bathroom. Such treated woods can actually be extremely easy to clean, as well as being attractive and stain-resistant. Other options, perhaps better suited for the kitchen or bathroom than are many types of wood flooring, include vinyl, as well as ceramic tiles.

Vinyl flooring is extremely popular because it has a certain amount of yield to it; it “gives” imperceptibly under pressure, resulting in added foot and arch support. This is particularly helpful in the kitchen, where food preparation – and cleaning up after a meal – may result in prolonged periods of standing, particularly on special occasions such as holidays, birthdays, and other assorted family get-togethers. Vinyl is available in tiles or in sheets, and it can be fashioned to mimic the appearance of wood, ceramic, or other forms of flooring materials, thus adding to its appeal… as does the fact that it is not particularly expensive. For a certain simplicity of style and elegance, meanwhile, there are few options which really beat the ceramic tile, particularly in the bathroom.
