Your kitchen floor has to weather it all, serve up charm while you serve dinner, and be easy to clean while allowing style and comfort. So it begs the question, Timber or Tiled flooring?
Almost half of our clients are now selecting wood over stone for its natural aesthetical warmth , though it will not suit every kitchen, wooden floors add a touch of class to this important space and value to most properties. Enveloping modern features, their clean lines add a seamless polish. Helping to create a welcoming feel.
In terms of colour, wood also allows a warmth to room that sometimes stone can’t give, this allows all other colours in room to be a little cooler or calmer for some.
However, there’s no denying the appeal of tiles.
Traditionally they have been the kitchen favourite. Tiles are very easy to maintain, will weather the trials of your kitchen well and happily support years of foot traffic.
A lot of families now incorporate an open plan living and kitchen are into their homes, and can find it hard to decide if floor tiles should be incorporated in the room.
If you are deciding if you should use a combination of tiles and timber floors in an open plan room, either from a cooking to living space or perhaps tiling between island and cooker for practicality , we feel is perhaps not.
It weakens the overall calibre of the room too much. Using one continuous material on the floor, will make the room feel spacious.
