When remodeling your kitchen, you have a thousand and one decisions to make about the cabinets, the walls, the appliances, and the list goes on. One of the first decisions (and one of the most important) is your kitchen flooring. The good news is that you don’t have to face this decision alone. Let our design team here at Tom’s Best Quality Remodeling offer a few tips.

Kitchen Flooring1. Durability

As you probably know, your kitchen can take a beating. From dropped pans to the sheer number of people who tend to congregate there, the kitchen floor goes through quite a bit. You want to choose a material that is durable over the long haul. Many homeowners choose tile flooring for this very reason.

2. Water resistant

Even the most conscientious person spills a glass of water from time to time. Due to all the liquid-related activities that happen in a kitchen (washing dishes, pouring milk, boiling spaghetti on the stove, and so on), you need a flooring that resists spills.

3. Easy to clean

Messes happen. That spaghetti sauce or red wine can be difficult to get out of some flooring materials. Therefore, you may want to opt for an easy-to-clean tile or vinyl option.

4. Classic

You can find a ton of fun, funky flooring patterns out there. While we don’t dissuade our customers from getting the kitchen of their dreams, we do encourage you to consider whether you’ll like that flooring five years from now. You may be happier in the long haul choosing a classic flooring option that you won’t want to change in a few years when the fad fades.
