Functionality is one of the main things that you have to consider when picking a new floor for your kitchen to ensure it can withstand all the usual kitchen dramas; spills, stains, foot fall and moisture. Taking this into consideration we would always advise you to avoid solid wood flooring due to the increased humidity and moisture - this can cause the wood to warp and change size. Staying away from carpets as well can make your life a lot easier. Even though there are some carpets that are designed to be more robust and stain resistant we feel that there are more practical options. Here’s our simple guide to kitchen flooring to help your make your decision easier.

This option doesn’t hold up as well as some of the other options on the list, but if you are set on the wooden look go for it. To help maintain the wood water spillages should be mopped up immediately so this is something to consider.
