Is it time to replace the kitchen flooring already? Kitchens are a notoriously active area in every household and, depending on the size of your family, can quickly become damaged and unsightly. This is easily avoided - you merely need to choose a floor that matches both your lifestyle and taste in home decor.
It may or may not have crossed your mind, but there are many factors that impact flooring satisfaction. We consider the following when discussing options with all our of customers and advise accordingly:
The average homeowner changes their flooring between 1 - 3 times in their lifetime, which means that your brand new kitchen flooring may have to withstand the test of children in the future. If you do have, or think it’s a possibility you’ll have children within the next 15 - 20 years, make sure that you opt for a durable surface.
Do you have a preferred cleaning technique or an expensive piece of kit you love using? It may seem menial, but bearing in mind what type of cleaning you’ll undertake can help you make a better decision.
If you’re considering underfloor heating to make those winter mornings more comfortable, certain floors that will work better/worse than others.
Kitchen flooring tends to be one of the first rooms to be decorated in a house. While you may be convinced that a quirky floor design is the right decision now, home improvements are long-term projects. It may be worthwhile opting for a more generic looking flooring.
This entirely depends on your lifestyle, plans and intentions. A property investor may choose a great looking flooring with shorter life to assist a sale, whereas a homeowner may opt for a more standard looking floor that they know will last for 20 years. Consider where you might be in 5-15 years and whether spending big on your floor is going to benefit you as much as it costs.
Of course, you’ve considered the size of your room, but if space is tight, it may be worthwhile opting for higher quality flooring that will last you longer.
