Pros: Durable, beautiful and eco-friendly.

Cons: Some types of bamboo can dent easily. 

Concrete kitchen flooring

Contemporary and durable, concrete can look great whilst withstanding activity in the busiest of kitchens. You can also find a variety of finishes depending on the overall design of your kitchen. All concrete can be stained, polished, waxed and stencilled.

Pros: Durable, moisture resistant, versatile and perfect for contemporary kitchen design.

Laminate wood kitchen flooring

Both an affordable and durable flooring idea that is a simple, modern solution for contemporary kitchens.

Pros: Durable, moisture resistant and available in a large range of shapes and colours.

Cons: The grout lines between tiles may be a challenge to keep clean and if you have an accident and drop glassware or dishes, they're likely to shatter.
