Floor Treatments

Often, floor treatments in a kitchen suffer from either poor color choice or type of material. Choosing the proper flooring can be much easier if you step out of the box of vinyl or tile floorings. Today, one of the most popular flooring materials is bamboo and mesquite. Concrete is also made into fashionable tiles for the kitchen, and all three materials are extremely durable. The overall effect is one of beauty and charm.

One of the hot trends today is towards wood floorings that are both durable and eco-friendly. Bamboo is such a product, but other materials work well also. Consider long plank flooring in your next kitchen remodel. Another choice, especially noted for durability, is cork. Cork is especially popular in Europe, but has been around for a very long time in the United States. It is comfortable to walk on, and is easy to care for.

Long plank flooring is especially sought after. It comes in a variety of woods, can be laid easily and such amenities as “hand scraping” to give the planks an aged look are available.

Laminates are popular in the kitchen, with a large variety of styles available. They are durable and easy to clean, and there are a great deal of choices available today to fit any kitchen décor.
