It’s easy to see why hardwood/solid wood floors are so appreciated, given how elegant and versatile they are. This style is classic and suits any type of space, from kitchens to living rooms, bedrooms, offices and even bathrooms given the proper treatment. Hardwood floors are an especially great option for kitchens that are open and part of a social zone. They give out warmth and their beauty is timeless. If you want to add even more charm and character to your kitchen, choose reclaimed wood for the flooring.
Tiles are among the most durable and practical options for flooring, they can stand a lot of things easily and look cool. The only thing that can happen to tiles is breaking but you need to drop something really heavy to break them. Choose eye-catchy patterns and looks, the tiles can be the same as on the backsplash or some contrasting ones. If you want a peaceful look, choose neutral-colored tiles for floor décor; there are tiles imitating wood for those who want a warm touch.
However, there aren’t so many color choices and that means more limitations when planning the room’s design and decor.There’s a certain lightness to bamboo flooring that makes it a great option for modern and contemporary kitchen and for open and airy spaces in general.Bamboo flooring feels warm and comfortable underfoot and is comparable to hardwood flooring in a lot of ways. Its sustainable nature, however, makes it special and inspires a lot of people to choose it over other options.
It’s another beautiful kitchen and one that’s been finished off with traditional travertine tile. We love how crisp and clean this entire space is and the flooring plays its hand in that vision nicely. Also, notice the greens and yellows contrasting beautifully with all of the cream. Also a gorgeous geo pattern. This design is a bit bigger so it expands the space of the floor even more so – or at least gives the illusion. And it coincides nicely with the trendy, contemporary nature of the kitchen.
