The kitchen is one of the most expensive rooms to purchase flooring for. That is because the materials used in this space have to be able to stand up to the rigors of the kitchen, including spills and splatters from a variety of staining agents, as well as damage from dropped objects, including sharp pieces such as knives and forks.
This can sometimes reduce your options for this room down to just a few, relatively expensive materials. However, if you can think past traditional floors of wood and stone, you will see that there are actually a variety of very cost effective options for your floor, which are available on today’s market. These will often be able to reproduce the qualities of their more expensive counterparts for a fraction of the price.
