Your kitchen is more than just the place where you and your family eat. It’s the heart of your home, a gathering place—somewhere you can all come together to laugh, share, and celebrate. If your kitchen isn’t leaving you feeling inspired, maybe it’s time for a revamp!
Where should I start with my renovation?
One of the best places to start is from the ground up, with a flooring update. Beginning with floors means you can install any cabinets you choose later without having to cut or match flooring. It also lets you (literally) lay the design groundwork for your entire revamp!
Which type of flooring is best for my kitchen?
Now that you’ve decided to start with the flooring, the next question (and the most important one of all) becomes: which type of flooring should you get? With so many options out there, it can be hard to decide which is the right choice for you; are you looking for durability? Eco-friendliness? A chic modern update? Something on a budget? With so many things to consider, knowing your exact requirements will help you make the right decision.
What are the top kitchen flooring trends of 2021?
2021 is shaping up to be a year dominated by a need for fresh starts. We’ve all spent a lot of time in our homes lately, and especially in the kitchen! So what better time than now to renovate? Let’s get inspired. Here are the top kitchen flooring trends of 2021:
Geometric Tile Flooring
Geometric tiles are huge for 2021 and can add some major style points to your home! Shapes like hexagonal, scalloped, circular, and more will give your kitchen great visual interest while providing a solid foundation for the rest of your renovation once you get around to it. Think: classic Mediterranean tile-covered interiors, and start swooning.
Made from the bark of cork oak trees that can quickly replenish within a few years, cork is not only a beautiful product but a sustainable one, too! It’s also highly durable and slightly cushioned, so it’s comfortable to stand on for long periods. Add in that it’s eco-friendly, and you’ve got yourself a great kitchen flooring option!
White Laminate Flooring
Whether you go with plastic or engineered hardwood laminate flooring, one of the hottest trends of the year is a clean white wood stain. Although classic wood finish is warm and inviting, basic white offers a clean, fresh feel which is great for the kitchen. Light-coloured flooring also has the added benefit of making your space look and feel much larger than it is.
Ceramic flooring is known for being resistant to stains, making it an excellent option for the high-traffic and frequently used kitchen. Ceramic tiles come in a variety of colours and styles, so you’ll have your fair share of options to choose from when deciding on the aesthetic of your new kitchen. Although ceramic flooring isn’t a major head-turner in 2021, it offers a classic look that truly never goes out of style.
Wide-Plank Vinyl Wood Flooring
Longer, wider vinyl wood flooring planks are oh-so-chic right now. Offered in a variety of wood finishes, wide-plank vinyl makes your kitchen look larger and more open because it’s less busy than traditionally short and thin vinyl planks. This trend we expect will stay long after this year because who doesn’t want a kitchen that feels modern, open, and inviting?
What’s more luxurious than a marble floor? With its beautiful swirls and smooth, bright finish, marble is a timeless option for the heart of your home. Installing this type of flooring in your kitchen will increase your property value in a big way. It will also make you fall madly in love with your kitchen every time you see it. If you’re looking for a marble look on a budget, there are great tile options available, too!
