How to pick the right flooring for your kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of any good home. It is where you host your gatherings and share a cuppa with your nearest and dearest. Choosing a new flooring for your kitchen can be tricky, it will act as a backdrop and will have a big impact on the overall look and feel of the space. Therefore, it is essential to get it right (no pressure).
A kitchen floor has a pretty tough job, it has to withstand a lot of wear and tear and it’s probably the most hardworking floor in the home, from the muddy pitter patter of little feet (or paws) to regular staining from cookie dough, red wine or tea spillages. Despite all this chaos it endures, we still expect our kitchen floor to remain looking tip-top even after a 3 hour baking session.
We spend a lot of our time in the kitchen slaving away over the hob for a meal that is inhaled within 10 minutes, therefore having a kitchen you enjoy being in makes a huge difference. When it comes to flooring everyone is different, some prefer the warmth of natural wood whereas others prefer the sleek look of stone tiles. With an abundance of hard wearing and unique finishes available, there is no excuse for your kitchen floor to look so disheveled.

Dark Wood LVT
From deep mahogany to warm tones of ash, dark wood is perfect for those who prefer to live on the darker side of life. Dark and indulgent tones help to create a formal feel in a kitchen, but can also be used in industrial-style kitchens for a modern and contemporary finish. Use as a backdrop if your kitchen is full of lightly-coloured features and furniture otherwise it can shrink your space and make it feel rather dark and gloomy (unless that's your thing).
