Practical But Beautiful Kitchen Floor We all know that a kitchen floor must be strong and durable. Water, dropped objects, dirty feet, and pets can all cause damage. As a result, we usually decide to compromise and go with practical over beautiful. But, what if you could have a beautiful kitchen floor that was also extremely durable? Kitchen Floor Choices If I asked, what is the most beautiful floor covering? Most people will answer with wood. A wooden floor has a natural warmth. It’s available in many different shades and works well with most interiors. Unfortunately, as beautiful as wood is, it’s not a practical choice for a kitchen floor – unlike tiles. Tile flooring has been around forever, the Romans even used it! Tiles are practical and hard-wearing, so they make the perfect choice for a kitchen. However, despite the wide range of colors and patterns, tiles still lack the beauty of wood. Now, if only you could combine the practicality of tile and the beauty of the wood. Believe it or not, now you can. Kitchen Floor Best Option With advances in technology, manufacturers can make tiles that look exactly like wood. The same shades are even available. Manufacturers also texture the tiles to look and feel like wood. So, if you ever wanted a wooden floor in your kitchen, now you can have it with wood effect tiles. To perfect the look, tiles are also available in a variety of lengths. This allows you to lay them the same way as planks and create an authentic look. While a natural wood finish is beautiful, you might want something a little different. Wood effect tiles allow for this. They are available in special effect finishes, such as smoke, recycled, or lime stain. With so many choices available, you can create a truly unique look for your kitchen. Beautiful and Practical Believe me, these new tiles are so realistic that, once you lay them, it’s hard to tell they are not real wood. Tiles may look the same as wood, but the performance is miles apart. Your wood effect floor won’t suffer from water damage or staining. Even better, it won’t lose its glossy finish over time or suffer from scratches and dents.
