Kitchen floor help
April 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I want cream cabinets in my new kitchen. I think a dark floor looks best as it warms the look. I do not want wood floors. Are tile floors hard on the feet and legs?

Armstrong Flooring (and I am sure other floor companies) have vinyl tiles that mimic quite well ceramic tiles. They even put grout in between the tiles. It is not hard on the feet and legs and the floor is not cold.

Yes they are, I have them in one house and hate it. I am putting vinyl plank wood floors in my new summer home. I have used them in 4 of my clients homes and they love them. They look so really most people can't tell that they are not. It is so easy to stand on them with bare feet. My favorite one is made by Karndean. They have a loose lay product that is easy to install and is just marvelous looking.

agreed, vinyl laminate floors could give the look of wood while providing some softness on the feet.

I've been thinking of a floating cork floor. Everywhere I go, they swear they are wonderful for the kitchen. They come in a large variety of colors or pattern them like tiles.

Thanks for your suggestions. I have seen a vinyl plank floor and did like it. It had a pretty dull finish though. Maybe some manufacturers make them with a bit of a shine?

How do you care for cork floors? Is the finish soft and easily scratched?
