The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the house and is where many of us spend the majority of our time. It sees more stains, spills, and wear and tear than any other room, which is why it needs a high-quality, reliable floor. Here are our recommendations for finding the perfect fit for your kitchen.

Engineered Wood Flooring
Many homeowners love the feel of a real wood floor. Natural materials like wood regulate the air climate and promote a healthy and fresh living space. Wood is also extremely versatile and will suit any interior or furnishing style.
Unlike solid wood, engineered wood is composed of various layers of timber which lend it great strength and stability. This makes it highly resistant to heavy loads and foot traffic, which is beneficial if you live in a particularly busy household. Underfloor heating is also very popular in the kitchen, and thanks to its multi-layer construction, engineered wood flooring can be installed over it without a problem.
So, if you’re looking for a floor that boasts both stunning aesthetics and practical benefits, then engineered wood is the one for you. Still unsure? Take a look at our range of engineered wood flooring and order a free sample before you buy!
Laminate flooring is another great choice for the kitchen. Not only are our laminate floors long-lasting and robust, but they are also extremely low maintenance and easy to clean. We’d definitely recommend laminate for busier households with children or pets, where accidents are more likely to happen. Any spillages can be easily wiped away with a damp mop or cloth. It’s as easy as that!

Luxury Vinyl Tiles
Our Luxury Vinyl Tiles have a much higher resistance to moisture and spillages than engineered wood and laminate floors, making them one of the most popular choices for the kitchen. What’s more, you can purchase our vinyl floors in a range of realistic designs, from stone tiles to authentic wood planks. There’s something for everyone.
Vinyl flooring is family and pet-friendly. Its smooth surface makes it very easy to sweep, mop and vacuum so that your kitchen always remains in tip-top condition. Vinyl is also waterproof and stain-resistant, meaning that any accidents can be wiped away without worry. Many of our vinyl floors are also fitted with a handy click system and can be installed without a fitter. What’s not to love?
