How can I choose the perfect kitchen flooring? 

In many aspects, this is one of the most important choices you will make when it comes to new kitchens. Again, there are many materials and styles to suit all tastes and budgets, and there are a number of key considerations to think about. Certain flooring materials are more sound proof than others, so these are important points to think about. Solid hardwood flooring works perfectly with an array of styles; everything from modern and sleek, to country style, industrial, rustic, and everything in between, a solid timber floor is elegant and timeless. Parquet timber floors are also popular, and the patterns they create are ultra stylish and instantly eye catching. Non-resilient kitchen flooring options are also just as popular and well-loved, and for good reason. Tiles are affordable, stylish, and more than functional when it comes to cleaning for a busy household. There are a number of advantages and disadvantages to both resilient and non-resilient kitchen flooring choices, so be prepared to do your research.
