LVT and Laminate Tiles: A New Age of Kitchen Flooring is Here

Friday, 3 November 2017


The future of kitchen flooring is here! Gone are the days when the only choices for our kitchen were cold ceramic tiles and cheap laminate. Today´s modern kitchen is stylish, simple, sleek, and it has a floor that can stand the test of time. More and more people are choosing classic, timeless looks for their floors that will look good for many years to come. Everyone loves the look of wood and stone, but it´s usually not very practical and not to mention budget friendly, either! Homeowners these days are choosing LVT and laminate flooring for their kitchens. Keep reading to find out why!


One of the popular flooring options for kitchens is LVT flooring. LVT stands for luxury vinyl tile, and it has always been a bestseller. It´s made up of several layers that are pressed and fused together under heat and pressure. Vinyl tiles are made to withstand areas with high humidity and water, which means that they work great in kitchens and bathrooms. It comes in any design imaginable, but we´re especially loving Gerflor´s Senso Rustic Antique Style Collection (available here on our site for £15.95/m²). It´s made up of timeless rustic, modern and shabby designs that will give your home that perfect Pinterest-home look everyone´s been going for. We´re loving the shade Ginger, a warm-toned white wood that would look great in a Shabby Chic kitchen. If you´ve been on Pinterest lately (like we have!) you have most definitely seen gorgeous kitchens with beautiful wood floors to match. Vinyl tiles´ popularity has exploded in recent years, because of their style and durability.


Laminate flooring is another extremely popular option for kitchens. In the last few decades it has gone through a transformation, and it´s no longer the flimsy product it once was. The laminate of today is durable, scratch resistant, and it just looks amazing. One of our favourite laminate flooring collections has got to be Balterio´s Pure Stone collection (available on our site here for £18.99/m²). They offer beautiful designs that mimic the natural look of stone, including all of it´s grooves and textures. One of our favourite shades from this collection is Belgian Blue Honed, a beautiful dark grey stone. Balterio´s flooring is so reliable, that they offer a 33 year warranty on their products. We´re sure that you´d sooner become bored with the same floor before it could be worn out!
