What is the best flooring option for your kitchen?

Your kitchen flooring is an important choice when decorating as it can make an immediate difference to the look of your room.

There are a variety of options for the kitchen which can provide practicality and style suited to all tastes.


Vinyl flooring is a very versatile choice in the kitchen due to the array of designs available. Many of these designs mimic wood, stone and tile effects ideal for varied tastes.

Not only is it comfortable and warm underfoot it is a very cost-effective flooring option.

Vinyl is ideal for the kitchen due to its practical qualities such as an easy to clean, waterproof and slip proof surface - the perfect option if you do have pets and younger children.

The Carpet Showroom recommends Trio in Antia Brown due to its simple tiled finish, the ideal product to create understated elegance.


Laminate flooring comes in an array of different finishes varying from rustic oaks and paler vintage woods. Like vinyl, it mimics hardwood with ease at a fraction of the cost.

The main strength of laminate is its tough resistant surface, great for busy households. We would recommend opting for a professional measure to ensure the perfect fit for your home.

One of our favourite products is 950 Arte, the ideal choice if you prefer a traditional finish.

Engineered wood

Wood floors are a classic addition to any home. A well-made and correctly installed solid wood floor will add warmth, character and value to your home.

Engineered wood is a great flooring option for kitchens due to its durable surface as it is constructed from many layers of plywood finished with hardwood veneer.

The Carpet Showroom has a variety of colours and styles of engineered wood to suit any busy household.
