Keep in mind that travertine floors are cold to the touch and hard underfoot so you might want to add some wood just to warm up the decor and the ambiance and to provide some contrast to the space in terms of colors and textures. Obviously, travertine kitchen flooring is not for everyone and the look suits some styles better than others. Consider this option if you prefer a more rustic or traditional decor and a cozy farmhouse feel.
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.
The cons is carpets are much more difficult to clean than tiles or concrete and they get greasy, worn and torn because of the heavy traffic. This can give your kitchen a less clean and fresh look.So, in conclusion, I feel compelled to tell you I reached a compromise and purchased a small rug for the area near the kitchen table, but I really want to see your opinion on this topic.
Brick and stone are recommended in case you want unbreakable and super-lasting cover for the floors. Whitewashed bricks put in some patterns will give your kitchen a relaxed look, and stone is all about rustic décor. You can also use pavers that resemble of stone or bricks to create a necessary look, and they will be no less durable.
