The kitchen is the most trafficked area in a house; spilling, stomping and running, your kitchen takes it all. But with regular maintenance and by using the right wood and finish you can have durable wooden flooring in your kitchen. Here are a few things that you might want to consider before getting your kitchen wooden floored.
Wooden floors in the kitchen need to have a protective coating to prevent the absorption of moisture and stains. Although most of the wood floor finishes available, today are suitable for kitchens, using a water-based clear finish is often recommended because they preserve the wood‘s colour and can be easily re-coated. The best water-based finish is a factory-applied, acrylic-impregnated finish that diffuses through the wood instead of just staying on the surface. Although acrylic coated floors are more expensive, they are stronger and require less maintenance. Also using satin sheen finish helps disguise dirt.
Modern kitchen flooring options. For more modern kitchens, homeowners can try using resins and glass. Resins are great for spaces with irregular shapes and sizes. The material comes in liquid form and is poured onto the base, creating a single continuous piece of flooring. You can choose to add glass beads as insets to create a shiny, textured finish. If you are looking for more daring kitchen flooring options, why not try a glass floor? Toughened glass is used to create a sleek look. The glass can be acid polished or sandblasted underneath to create a unique look without making people slip or fall while walking over the flooring.
