More about Kitchen Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl flooring is suitable in all rooms in the home, but it is especially popular in rooms subject to moisture or spills, such as the kitchen. Vinyl flooring for kitchen provides a wipe-clean surface and is extremely easy to maintain, only needing to be cleaned thoroughly after it’s fitted. The rest of the time, a quick mop or wipe down will do the trick. It’s also extremely hardwearing, perfect for kitchens that are busy, and comes in a range of styles to suit all aesthetics.
Why should you choose vinyl for kitchens?
Your kitchen is most likely one of the busiest rooms in your home with lots of activity going on. With plenty of cooking, baking, and washing dishes, the likelihood of spilling food or water on your kitchen floor is extremely high. Vinyl for kitchen is a perfect flooring solution as it’s super hardwearing, versatile and easy to clean.
If you’re redecorating on a budget, vinyl could be the best option for your kitchen. This is also a great idea if you have a kitchen diner as there is a larger floor area to cover. With vinyl flooring coming in so many different styles including rolled, planks, and tiles, you can have your desired aesthetic without the added expense.
One of the most attractive traits of kitchen flooring vinyl over tiles or laminate is that it is very easy to maintain. Once fitted, the floor doesn’t require any upkeep other than regular cleaning. Many of the vinyl options at Factory Direct Flooring come with antibacterial properties, helping your kitchen to stay cleaner for longer. You can easily clean kitchen vinyl with soap and water – just a quick mop with a mild detergent a couple of times a week should keep it sparkling.
Which style of vinyl flooring should I choose for my kitchen?
The beauty of vinyl is that you can have a floor that looks like real wood, stone, or a more contemporary tile design that is soft and warm to the touch and easy to maintain.
Vinyl kitchen floor tiles
Tiles are popular in the kitchen as they are wipe-clean and hardwearing. However, if you don’t have the funds or time to have a traditional tiled floor fitted, vinyl tiles can provide a similar solution. With the look of real tiles in natural stone, slate and marble styles in different colours, they provide an impressive imitation. Vinyl kitchen floor tiles are fitted using a click system and are simple to install. They are also waterproof, meaning you won’t have to worry about spills or messes damaging your floor.
Vinyl kitchen floor planks
Like vinyl floor tiles, vinyl floor planks for the kitchen are fitted and installed in the same way as laminate flooring. These planks have a wood effect in many different styles including oak in various colours, walnut, timber and more modern styles in grey and dark grey. If you already have wooden or laminate flooring throughout your home and want to incorporate this into your kitchen but are worried about getting the floor damaged, vinyl floor planks can offer an ideal transition.
Rolled kitchen vinyl
This is often one of the most affordable flooring choices, so is a fantastic option for those moving into a new home or those on a tight budget. Just because rolled vinyl is usually cheaper doesn’t mean it’s lower quality. One of the biggest advantages of choosing rolled vinyl in your kitchen is that you have the option of different flooring styles without the difficult installation. This style of vinyl comes in wood, tile, and stone effects, depending on your kitchen décor.
