Solid hardwood and engineered hardwood give your kitchen a classic, traditional character. It can also lend a more flowing, unified feel, especially in an open floor plan.
Kitchens are often one of the busiest rooms in many people’s homes. Plus, kitchens can serve as family gathering places. You’ll need to install durable, easy-to-clean kitchen flooring and window treatments that can handle traffic, spills, splashes and more. It’s also important to consider how the color of your kitchen cabinets and countertops will coordinate with your flooring and window treatment choices.
Considerations for Kitchen Floors
- Frequent spills from cooking
- Possibility of stains from cooking or eating
- Heavy usage area
- Easy care and maintenance required
- Kitchen floors may become slippery
- Kitchen flooring should complement cabinets and fixtures

Kitchen Flooring Ideas
Laminate is a practical choice for budget-conscious homeowners who want the look of real wood in the kitchen. It can create a unified look for open floor plan.
Ceramic and porcelain tiles are a staple in many kitchens (and with good reason). They are not only easy-to-clean, but are also highly durable and resistant to moisture, stains, and soil.
Vinyl has long been a popular choice for kitchen flooring. Vinyl flooring is durable, easy-to-clean, and has the look of real stone, tile, or even wood.
Whether it’s steam rising from a cooking pot, or splashes from a busy sink, kitchens can place heavy demands on your blinds & shades.
