What is the best flooring for your kitchen?

When you have friends over for coffee, what do they notice first about your kitchen? Stylish cabinets, funky lights and all the mod cons or the tired flooring that’s seen better days?

As a high-traffic area, it’s understandable that kitchen floors will take a fair amount of use over the years but that’s no excuse to let them fall into disrepair.

Whether you are drawn to the latest trend in rustic style laminate flooring or prefer the cool, clean look of vinyl tiles, we can help you choose the best style to suit your home.


If you’ve got young children, you don’t have to sacrifice style for practicality. Wood or stone-effect laminate and vinyl floors ensure your kitchen has a warm and rustic feel, yet it also comes with a surface that’s easy to keep clean.

Why not open up a smaller space with a light oak laminate like the one above?


You really can say something about your personality through the floor you choose. If you’re a fan of vintage shabby-chic then there’s the option of pale finishes but if dramatic interiors are more of your cup of tea then consider black laminate with white walls for a strikingly beautiful monochrome look.


Vinyl flooring doesn’t only come in a range of colours but some even have a slip resistant surface that makes it perfect for households with children and pets.

Vinyl is also known for being able to resist moisture – a perfect choice for kitchen flooring.

Top Tip Choose a darker shade so that scuffs and marks won’t appear as visible!   


When updating your kitchen floor, don’t just look at colour but consider the surface, style and durability of your chosen product.

Budget is a major factor so our buying guides can walk you through the different flooring options on offer to help you find the perfect wood and stone-effect floor that can be found for a fraction of the cost of the real thing!
