The Education Centre: What is the Best Kitchen Flooring?

The kitchen is often a room where people naturally gather, which means the flooring needs to be durable enough to withstand a high volume of foot traffic. People can be stood up for a long time as well, whether socialising or preparing food, so you should make comfort a priority.

Although these are important issues there is also the cost and style of the product to take into account. However comfortable and durable your kitchen floor, you shouldn't have to compromise on the appearance.


Laminate Kitchen Flooring

Depending on the demands you will be placing on your floor, you can choose a higher AC rating of laminate which indicates the level of durability.
