Vinyl has been the go-to flooring material for kitchens for several decades. Both traditional sheeting and luxury vinyl planks and tiles are available. Luxury vinyl is thicker, and therefore, more comfortable to walk on. Because of advanced printing technology that provides deep embossing, it also more realistically imitates stone and wood. Engineered hardwood, which consists of a core that is bonded to a layer of hardwood, is another good flooring choice. Also consider terracotta or stones like slate, marble, or travertine. You can create a focal point with a backsplash that complements your new floor, cabinets, and appliances. Consider glass, stone, stainless steel, and other tile materials.
Ceramic and porcelain are popular materials for bathroom flooring. Both are made from clay, but because of the firing method, porcelain is the better material. It is the most durable type of tile on the market. It is virtually impervious to water. Glazed ceramic also repels water. Waterproof flooring is always ideal for bathrooms. Look for luxury vinyl that has a wood plastic composite (WPC) or stone plastic composite (SPC) core. Also, some brands of laminate, a wood product, are waterproof. Mohawk RevWood Plus, Armstrong Audacity, Shaw Repel, and Tarkett AquaFlor are a few of the top brands.
