The kitchen really is the heart of your home. If your family is like most, you spend a lot of time gathered in the kitchen, cooking, eating or just enjoying each other’s company. The décor of your kitchen can set the tone for the entire rest of your house. When it comes to choosing a kitchen floor, you want something that’s welcoming and practical. It has to stand up to a lot of abuse, heavy foot traffic and spills, but it also has to be easy-to-clean and nice to look at. With so many choices on the market today, what’s the best material for your floor?

Obviously carpet’s out—too hard to keep clean. But once past that, the possibilities are nearly endless for your kitchen. There’s hardwood, always a classic choice. Hardwood’s flexibility makes it a great choice for comfort, as it flexes to support your feet and back if you spend hours bent over a hot stove. Most modern hardwood is pre-treated, meaning it’s more resistant to spills and can withstand lots of foot traffic. Wood’s organic, cozy appearance creates a warm atmosphere.

Stone or tile can be just the thing to give a modern or Mediterranean style to your kitchen. From brightly colored ceramic tiles to cool stonework, these flooring choices are easy to care for and extremely durable. With ceramic or laminate flooring, you have nearly infinite choices in terms of color, decoration and style.
