New kitchen flooring in a Mesa, AZ home

What is the best flooring for a kitchen?

The kitchen floor has a big job. It needs to withstand heavy foot traffic, stains, spills, and dropped items and, if that isn't enough, the kitchen is also a significant design statement. Sometimes it even becomes a focal point of the house. Talk in detail with the professionals at Taylors Flooring store in Mesa, AZ, so we’re clear on your needs and can help you select the right one.

The four things this room must have

1. Durability to withstand scratches, scuffs, and dents.
2. Waterproof capabilities because your appliances can flood, pipes can leak, and we all have those moments when we drop a gallon of milk or juice.
3. Easy maintenance. Who has the time to scrub floors? Instead, look for floors that need sweeping and damp mopping.
4. Style. It needs to fit in with the rest of your home and, today, it’s easy to combine aesthetics and function.

Some great choices

Our flooring company suggests:

1. Sheet, luxury, or waterproof vinyl. Hard-wearing with vibrant colors and patterns, this material is affordable, waterproof, and low maintenance. Luxury vinyl, a more advanced version of sheet vinyl, is five times thicker and can be cut into planks to mimic hardwood boards or groutable squares to echo stone and tile.

An even newer version, waterproof (vinyl) flooring, is thicker, more durable, with a WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) core that never peels or ripples, no matter how much water there is or for how long.

2. Porcelain tile. Made up of nonporous clay, sand, and glass, this is heavier and denser, ideal for heavily trafficked floors like the kitchen. It can be used indoors or out, has a through-body color, and comes in an almost unlimited number of colors and patterns. It is frequently chosen for wood look or stone look tiles.

3. Waterproof laminate flooring. Unique construction makes this flooring spill-proof, eliminating all concerns about absorption. As a result, it can be installed in any room, including the kitchen, where the original version was often avoided because of water issues.
