Maryland Kitchen Flooring

Kitchen flooring often gets overlooked during the remodeling process. At Bath Doctor, we think flooring is extremely important for the overall look and comfort of your kitchen, and it should never be left as an afterthought. We are a Maryland kitchen remodeling company, but we are also homeowners just like you. With our professional knowledge and personal experience, we are able to offer you valuable advice when it comes to choosing the right flooring for your kitchen.

Kitchen Flooring Considerations

Here are a few characteristics you should look into and consider when shopping for kitchen flooring:

  • Moisture-resistant—spills happen all the time in a kitchen, and it’s not always water.
  • Easy to maintain—we all know kitchens can be messy and require frequent cleaning.
  • Durable—kitchen flooring should withstand frequent cleaning, dropped objects and hot liquids.
  • Comfortable—cooking requires standing, often for several hours.

Kitchen Flooring Options

There are numerous flooring materials that fit most of the above criteria. Many of these materials also come in a variety colors and styles, able to match virtually any kitchen design.

Hardwood Flooring

You definitely shouldn’t put hardwood in a bathroom, but in a kitchen it can look beautiful and bring joy for years with little care. Hardwood is perfect for open floor plans when you want to continue the same theme and flow from the living room into the kitchen. Hardwood is classic and timeless, so you don’t have to worry about your kitchen looking dated in a few years. If you are worried about hardwood shrinking or warping due to the heat and moisture in the kitchen, choose engineered hardwood that is more stable thanks to its layered structure.

Vinyl Flooring

If you don’t want to spend a lot on flooring but still want to make sure it’s attractive and durable, vinyl is a great choice. Vinyl can be installed in sheets to avoid seams, or it can be laid in tiles (both grouted and groutless options are available). Luxury vinyl tiles are often designed to imitate other materials, such as natural stone; there are even vinyl planks made to look like wood. Vinyl is considered a resilient flooring, which means it’s extremely forgiving of any messes you make in your kitchen. You can even have vinyl flooring installed with extra cushion for comfortable cooking.

Tile Flooring

Both stone and porcelain tile are durable and low maintenance. The only major vulnerability they have is cracking when hit with a hard object, which is why it’s crucial to ensure a level sub-floor before laying tile. However, tile also has a major advantage, as it gives you many opportunities to get creative. Tile can be cut into any size you need and can be used to create mosaics, borders, medallions and many other unique features.
