If you have an active, busy family then your kitchen is a very busy place. With all that cooking going on and kids handling pots, pans and dishes, there are bound to be quite a few accidents. These accidents can damage your flooring, if you haven’t chosen one of the best kitchen floor options for a busy household.
Installing stone tile in the kitchen is a beautiful way to go. It is very durable. It is porous, so you don’t have to worry about slipping on greasy spills and it is fairly easy to clean. If you go with stone in the kitchen, make sure you have a sealant applied. Stone can soak up stains.
Vinyl flooring comes in many types of options these days. You can even find rolled vinyl that looks like hardwood flooring! There is also a plank version. These planks are glued down or floated to look like hardwood flooring, but are far less expensive. Vinyl is a carefree option for floors anywhere in the home.
Hardwood flooring, real or prefab, might not be the best option in the kitchen, as the frequent water spills will slowly degrade the finish. With an active family there are better options.
