The second type of kitchen floor mat is plastic and rubber mats. These mats are ideal for houses with children and the elderly. Children and the elderly are more prone to accidents inside the kitchen, due to wet floor surfaces. The kitchen will always have wet floors from time to time due to all the kinds of liquids we store in them. Plastic and rubber mats prevent slips from happening, even on wet floors. They are made from non-slip materials that make this possible.
Stone or tile works very well in heavy traffic areas of the home, such as the kitchen. One of the most durable tiles is ceramic, which comes in various colors and styles. Ceramic tiles also have lots of options that can be sued for decorative designs and/or borders. If you want to use limestone, remember it is a porous stone and must be sealed upon installation and then twice a year. Limestone is a natural stone and offers an Old World look to it, however, if the maintenance for it is not something you want to undertake, I would suggest finding another flooring material for your kitchen.
When flooring your kitchen, it is advisable to always for the hardest wood. Oak and ash are some of the strongest native wood species used in the making of wooden floors. The greatest advantage of using these species is that their beautiful and heavy graining and delicate texture not only make your kitchen floor beautiful but it also helps camouflage the small scratches and dents that are bound to occur over time. There are other stronger wood species available in the market like Jatoba and Santos Mahogany, but the main disadvantage of using them is that they tend to change colour and darken over time. Also, they are very susceptible to humidity fluctuations.
