When it comes to your kitchen floor, there are a myriad of flooring options to choose from. There are also a lot of factors about your home and your lifestyle to consider. How often do you use your kitchen? Do you have an open floor plan? Here are four great kitchen flooring options with tips on who should use them and how.

Vinyl Tiles

Vinyl tiles are a hugely popular kitchen flooring choice because they’re so easy to maintain, inexpensive, and come in a wide variety of colors and designs. The vinyl tiles of today have evolved greatly from the old vinyl tiles of the 1980s. Today’s vinyl tiles are constructed to be durable and stylish. If you love the look of hardwood or natural stone but don’t want to spend the money or the effort to maintain them, then vinyl tile is an easy answer. Vinyl tiles can be made to look virtually indistinguishable from natural wood or stone, so you get the look without the money or time investment.


Who says hardwood floors don’t belong in the kitchen? As long as you don’t leave standing water on your hardwood floors, they’ll be a great addition to your kitchen. Hardwood floors are easy on the feet and add elegant charm to the kitchen. Hardwood also looks great in an open plan kitchen and weathers through fickle interior design trends. Plus, should you ever decide you want a new look, you can have your floors sanded and refinished!

Natural Stone

Do you love the cozy atmosphere created by rustic, natural interior design elements? Then natural stone flooring is for you. Elegant stone flooring brings the colors and textures of nature into your kitchen. You can opt for anything from polished granite tiles for a clean, sophisticated look to raw slate for an elegant country kitchen look. Plus, natural stone is a very durable material, so it’s in it for the long haul.

Glass Tiles

Glass tiles are surprisingly strong and have the deep, reflective quality that is unique to glass. Glass tiles are considered a high-end kitchen flooring material, so they’re perfect for creating a kitchen that will impress guests. Plus, durable glass tiles are also slip-resistant, so they can withstand the everyday wear and tear of family life.
