Tiled Floor

Ceramic or porcelain tiles are popular choices for kitchens. Coming in a variety of designs and colours, they can add real character to a kitchen. They are also easy to clean and water-resistant. In terms of cons, they can be a little cold and hard underfoot, and given their hard surface, tiles can crack if a heavy object is dropped on them.

Laminate Flooring

As an affordable and low maintenance option, laminate flooring can be a good choice for a kitchen. Available in a variety of wood-look designs, it can add warmth to the space and is resistant to water and scratches. However, it can be less durable than other flooring options and can be damaged more easily than other flooring.

Stone Flooring

Natural stone flooring such as granite, marble, or slate can add a luxurious feel to a kitchen design. It is durable, water-resistant, and easy to clean, however it can come at a cost! 

Wooden Flooring

Hardwood flooring can add cosy ambiance and elegance to a kitchen. It is robust option and simple to clean. Plus if it gets scratched, it can be restored. Again, this can be quite costly and is not as water-proof as alternative flooring choices.
