Get Focused – Selecting Kitchen Flooring

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips, slider

It can be a little over whelming when selecting flooring for your kitchen, there are so many choices, hardwood, tile, laminate, cork and so on.  The other day we found a great questionnaire from Kitchens.com that will help you focus your selection process.

  1. What is under my current flooring? How will this material affect the choice of my new flooring? Is there asbestos that will need to be removed?
  2. What flooring option feels the best under my feet?
  3. Do I want to use the opportunity of getting a new floor to level off its height if I now have to step up or down to enter the kitchen?
  4. Would I like to install a radiant-heat system under my new floor?
  5. Do I prefer a consistent color or one that’s broken up by granules or veins or that’s patterned?
  6. Do I need to consider the safety of children or elderly family members who may be coming through or using the kitchen?
  7. Do I want to place a priority on being able to quickly clean up spills without worrying about stains or water damage?
  8. Do I prefer natural or manmade materials?

If you’ll like you can go to the Kitchens.com to print out the questionnaire and refer to it as you shop for flooring. Good Luck!
