One of the most important factors to consider when remodeling kitchens in Ireland is the flooring. Kitchen flooring may commonly be overlooked as you explore kitchen design ideas and choose between themes like a French provincial kitchen theme, a modern theme or the popular country kitchen look.

However, the material and color of the flooring will play a major role in the overall look and functionality of the kitchen. Exploring different flooring ideas can help you to make the right decision for your space.

  • Are Wooden Floors suitable in a Kitchen?

Many people love the look of wood floors, but they avoid wood floors in their kitchen design because of concern that the floor will be damaged due to heavy wear and tear or exposure to water. However, you can enjoy the look of wood floors with the benefits of ceramic tile when you install ceramic wood planks on the floor. These ceramic tiles look just like real wood, and they are available in a variety of colors. For example, you can install a barn-style wood floor for casual or country kitchens, or you can install a high-gloss cherry wood floor for sophisticated or elegant kitchens.

Wood floors can be enjoyed in many styles of kitchens Ireland, but tile and stone floors are also a beautiful choice. With options that range from polished marble and granite tiles to slate and natural stone available in different colors, you can easily find a wonderful flooring surface that enhances the style of your home.

  • Check materials in your home first

Here’s another kitchen design tip from Agetek: Because there are many different types and colors of materials that can be installed with your kitchen design plans, it is important to review various swatches of materials inside the home before you make your decision. The floor material may easily be overlooked, but because of the surface area covered by the flooring material, it can have a major influence on the look of the room.
