Kitchen flooring ideas to spruce up your space

06 Oct

Kitchen flooring may need to be hard wearing and practical, but there's certainly no need for it to be dull. To give you some inspiration, check out our kitchen flooring ideas to suit every style, from painted floorboards to geometric patterns. Kitchens often tend to blend with dining rooms or areas into a more open-plan space, so your kitchen flooring is a great way of bringing your home's decor together.

1. Consider pattern

Make your kitchen flooring a feature with beautifully patterned floor tiles. They are a standout piece but pick out your colour scheme beforehand and test what colours and patterns complement each other before you commit. For example, try a pale blue and grey combined with navy painted kitchen units. 

2. Stick to stone

Natural materials like stone are a popular choice and bring some authenticity to your scheme. Mimica porcelain tiles are a popular trend right now, which recreate the look of natural materials whilst providing an easy to care for finish. Perfect for busy kitchens with many feet. 

3. Contrast with wood

Wooden floors are a popular choice for kitchens as long as they are treated properly so that they’re resistant to stains and spills. Try a dark-stained floor, paired with white walls and high airy ceiling- this creates a fantastic contrasting look. 

4. Go subtle with parquet

Choose a beautifully delicate parquet if you want to create a hint of a feature floor without going over the top. You can lay classic parquet flooring as individual blocks, or you can copy the effect with wood planks. White furniture and units are brilliant partners, as they enable the warm wood tones to shine through.

5. Fake it

There's nothing wrong with faking it, it's cheaper and still looks good. In this instance, laminate flooring is your new best friend – modern laminates often come with long guarantees and are highly durable. They can also be used with underfloor heating and, thanks to high-quality digital imaging technology, they are indistinguishable from the real thing.
