Selecting flooring for your kitchen can be a daunting task; in no other room is the floor regularly subjected to the same changes in temperature, humidity, spillages and other potential mess. To make your life easier we’ve compiled a kitchen floor style guide so you can seek out the best flooring ideas for your kitchen – we’ve considered everything from choice of flooring material, to style, look and value for money.
Why pick bamboo? For the environmentally conscious, bamboo flooring is the best material to pick for your kitchen. Made from a fast-growing type of grass, bamboo flooring is eco-friendly and an attractive, sustainable flooring option for any modern kitchen. Of course, a clean conscience isn’t the only benefit to having bamboo floor in the kitchen – it’s also durable, naturally water resistant and at around £30.00 per m² this kitchen flooring is easy on the wallet.
Cons: If you like to have lots of choices, you might find there is – comparatively – a less extensive range of bamboo styles when contrasted with other flooring choices. Still, with such an attractive look it’ll be a good pick for the indecisive among you.

Why pick laminate? Laminate flooring might not be the first material to spring to mind when you think of flooring suited to kitchens, however, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that this cost-effective laminate flooring is suitable for kitchens. Laminate floor is super easy to clean and highly resistant to denting and scratches – it’s definitely a good choice for those of you with a busy kitchen. It comes in an array of styles, effects and stains – from an authentic wood effect, to a tile look.
Cons: Laminate flooring is an undeniably a durable choice for the kitchen, but it is worth noting that it can be vulnerable to stains from standing water.
