Should you abandon the idea of having a wooden floor in your kitchen or go ahead with the idea of installing it and neglect the unwanted consequences when it is exposed to water? The ideal answer is - you can actually install hardwood flooring in your kitchen but you need to take note of few things below:
In looking at flooring, it is beneficial to have a kitchen floor that is slip resistant. It is important to also have a surface in the kitchen that is resistant to stains and scratches. If you have babies around, or are planning a family in the future, you may not want to choose vinyl for your kitchen floor. While some vinyl flooring emits relatively few volatile organic compounds (VOCs) there is still concern due to health issues and pollution where vinyl is concerned.
The eating areas in restaurants generally have stubborn food stains, which are quite difficult to remove with ordinary cleansers. Even the furnishings, sofas and curtains get dirty due to continued usage. Steam works best on these types of dirt and stains and leaves your restaurants spick and span. The Jetsteam Tosca steam cleaner machine comes a host of technologies to produce better and more efficient kitchen cleaning results.
But some people shy away from wood because of the maintenance requirements. With tile, there are more options than just one. Ceramic and stone are popular. Ceramic tile has several choices in color and patterns, plus it‘s easy to clean and simple to maintain. But it can crack and grout can become dirty. Stone tile is popular for its rustic look and durability. It‘s also simple to clean and maintain. Carefully way the pros and cons of each option before making your choice.
Firstly, there are glazed and unglazed tiles; the glazed tiles can be cleaned very easily and do not stain as often as unglazed tiles. All you need to do is run a mop soaked in warm water with a mild detergent solution across them from time to time. The problem with glazed tiles is that they are very smooth and therefore can be quite slippery. This is dangerous, especially if the kitchen area is prone to water spillage or if there are young children in your home. To avoid this, you could choose unglazed tiles over glazed ones. Unglazed tiles will prevent the floor from being slippery and have an aesthetically pleasing textured surface. Then again, unglazed tiles will not be as durable as glazed ones - they will be relatively more prone to damage because they are not protected by that extra layer of glazing.
