Choosing the Right Kitchen Flooring for Your Home
The Handyguys, and today we want to talk about flooring options. And not just any floor, but specifically what you might use for the kitchen. And also kind of what’s new, I mean you know wood has been around for a long,. long time. Traditional ceramic tiles and things have been around for a long time but there’s. some new products that are really good in the kitchen. Right. So, some people want to put wood in their kitchen and look to wood products because. they maybe want to match the rest of their house that’s wood.
Wood is never the perfect option because it’s susceptible to moisture and water. That’s right, it can damage. So, if you want to go with wood there are some other options you can look at bamboo. That’s right. So, bamboo can come in different shades and textures, right, and it’s sustainable and. it’s not very expensive compared to like a solid wood floor. So Brian, this bamboo flooring looks great but I think we have some other options in looking at materials.
We can look at some newer materials that hold up to moisture and water and you. can still have a great-looking floor. That’s right. So, one of those is vinyl and I’m not talking about vinyl that’s been around for 30 or 40. years, I’m talking about some new generation of vinyl. Right. Like this one right here. Hey Brian, I think a vinyl that’s been around this flimsy either sheet vinyl or these. stick on tiles. Right. You have you know your chair can damage this pretty easily and things like that so there. are new luxury vinyl products like this and these come in tiles and they’re grouted with a newer type of epoxy grout so it holds up really well doesn’t stain like a masonry grout. does.
So, this is vinyl but it looks like slate. That’s right. It has a texture of slate. It has a color. And there’s hundreds of colors and patterns. There’s another couple back there, if you want to pull them out and show them. Right. So, you can get it to look more like traditional tile if you’d like. That’s right. And here’s another again, it looks more like a traditional tile. That’s right. So, it not only looks but it feels like tile. And it’s thicker and stronger than that really thin sheet vinyl. Yet, it’s going to be warmer than a ceramic or a porcelain tile.
So, what I like about luxury vinyl, Brian, is that you if you really want something. that looks like the wood you can still consider a vinyl, something that holds up to moisture,. but get a product that is looking like wood. Right. This can come in actual planks that are maybe three or four foot long or two-foot-long,. different widths, and it has the texture and the coloring of wood and will hold up like. tile. Right. Yet, it’s still vinyl. It’s still vinyl. It’s going to hold up to the water and to the moisture. That’s right. So, now this can be damaged. You drop a heavy knife into this it’s going to stick, right, just like it would. stick in the wood. It’s not going to damage a ceramic tile, for example. So Brian, what about that other product that some people confuse with vinyl, what. we your grandmother used to have, and it was called linoleum. Linoleum. So, grab some of that.
So, linoleum is a product that’s made out of wood flour and linseed oil. It’s been around for a 100 years. And, it’s available in some pretty outrageous colors, like they’re showing here, but also. some muted colors if that’s what you want. So, you typically get this in sheets like vinyl in the old days but it’s very thick. The color runs through it. That’s right. And, it’s very durable. That’s right. And, you can also get this in, you know, do-it-yourself click-lock products and stuff like that. It’s going to be more expensive than luxury vinyl tile. But, you can mix and match colors and do all kinds of patterns, if you want. And, it needs a professional installation and it can be expensive. That’s right. So, and it has the same problems really, you know, sharp objects. The good thing is the color runs through it, but still it’s something you have to maintain. like any other floor.
That’s right. PAUL: So, what about old fashioned tile?. Ceramic tiles been around a long time. Sure, so you could take something like this. Here is a porcelain tile, Paul, and this porcelain tile, again, like the luxury. vinyl, is available in wood planks. So, it’s a lot different from what I think of as a traditional ceramic tile. That’s right. It’s, obviously, it’s porcelain. It’s a little denser. A little harder. Right. And, some of this can even be used outside. Check the ratings, but it could be. Yeah, so this actually, like you said, has some feel to it like a wood product would. Yet, obviously, it’s not going to be susceptible to moisture like wood. It’s going to be a little colder underfoot in the kitchen. You know maybe in the winter in the morning but it’s going to hold up better than vinyl. of any type. Great. So, we have some options here. If you want wood, you can do wood. You can look at engineered flooring. You can look at bamboo like we showed you. But, if you really want flooring that’ll hold up well to moisture you can still go. with vinyl but you have some great options. You have your luxury vinyl as we have here, and you have your linoleum and. we have tile. But, tile is becoming so much more aggressive in its looks and features. If you want tile, it looks like wood, you can do it with porcelain tile, like we. have here. So, there you have it.
