Style Guide: Sturdy Kitchen Floor
31st Jan 2023
Can your kitchen flooring handle the heat? How about dropped pans, spilled water and all of the other hazards that come with cooking? The kitchen is the heart of your home, so it's important to choose flooring that can stand up to your active family and busy lifestyle. The ideal kitchen flooring should be sturdy, comfortable to stand on and easy to maintain, with an attractive finish that lasts. Fortunately, at Georgia Carpet we have a few ideas for flooring that can handle whatever you can dish out at it.
Luxury Vinyl Plank
Luxury Vinyl Plank is the obvious choice for use in the kitchen because it's remarkably durable, easily ranking as one of the sturdiest flooring options out there. Plus, with so many styles of luxury vinyl available, you can easily mimic the look of real wood or natural stone, with improved durability and resistance to things like moisture, pets, dents, scratches and other hazards. Luxury vinyl plank or tile flooring from Georgia Carpet comes in a variety of styles and is made by some of the brands you know and love the most. If you prefer flooring that looks like wood, check out Shaw Floorte vinyl flooring, featuring all of the beauty of real wood coupled with the durability and stain resistance of vinyl. If you prefer the look of stone, consider the COREtec Stone Collection, available in tiles that look like marble or granite.
If you love the look of wood, but know it won't work in your kitchen because of spills and splatters, consider engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood consists of a plywood core with a veneer of real hardwood on top. It's more stable than traditional hardwood and can be used in moist areas, like kitchens. It requires less maintenance than solid hardwood and boasts better durability overall, making it a stable and beautiful choice for the kitchen.
For the ultimate in budget-friendly flooring that can still handle your busy lifestyle, take a look at modern laminate flooring. Laminate is waterproof, kid-proof and pet-friendly. It comes in a wide variety of styles and can be installed over your exiting flooring in some cases. Laminate comes in plank or tile options and encompasses a full range of colors and patterns, though wood look laminate is the most popular style available. We carry laminate flooring from brands like Bruce, Armstrong, Mannington and more.
