Six Kitchen Flooring Options

Kitchen floors can be tricky. They need to be tough and durable, but you also want them to look good. These six options are both.

Ceramic Tiles

Possibly the least durable, but still a good option, ceramic tiles are prone to cracking, but laid out on a perfectly flat floor and well looked after, they can work out beautifully.

Porcelain Tiles

Hardwearing and available in just about every colour and design you can think of, porcelain tiles are an excellent choice. Many of these tile designs have a rich history, and you can choose what suits your home.

Natural Stone

Potentially the hardest-wearing of all, natural stone is a great choice, but it will be very cold, so under-floor heating is essential.

Solid Wood Flooring

Solid wood flooring, such as that available at, looks lovely and is warm and hardwearing too. Wood must be looked after properly, but you can refresh it regularly with a new coat of protective veneer.

Engineered Wooden Boards

Engineered wood is easy to install and stronger than natural wood, plus it is easy to keep clean. It’s a great option for busy kitchens, where the floor takes a lot of wear.


An eco-friendly option that comes in an array of styles and colours, lino can be temperamental and tar easily, but it looks good.


Scratch-proof and easy to replace, laminate flooring is best for really busy kitchens, and if it gets damaged it is easy and cheap to repair.
