Kitchen Flooring 

Kitchen flooring has come a long way from lino 
 
Home Improvement Swindon - kitchen guide
Far and away the most popular choice is stone or tiles, purely for the ease of cleaning. Next has to be scotch-guarded carpet or carpet tiles, which can be very practical.

There is also some very funky rubber on the market as well. Available in a vast range of colours, this more contemporary option is ideal for spills and other liquid mishaps as well as being extremely hardwearing.

But no matter what you choose, remember to ask yourself these important, practical questions.

How easy will it be to clean?

If you don't want to waste time worrying about stains on the carpet, get a surface that'll repel moisture and probably only need a going over once a week with a bit of flash.
 
It sounds obvious, but is your kitchen the main way in and out of the house?
 
Do you mainly eat in the kitchen? And what about pets?
 
Remember, the kitchen is meant to be the hub of the home, so don't make people feel uncomfortable there fearing making a mess.

Do I want underfloor heating?

Kitchen's can be cold places - especially in the morning - so why not add some underfloor heating while you're replacing the floor?
 
A well-insulated environment can cost between 12 and 14 per m2 per year, which means your kitchen could cost as little 8p per day to heat.
 
What feels best under my feet?

If you're the person that'll be using it the most, make sure you feel comfortable with your choice.

Are young children going to be about?

Safety in the kitchen is very important. A fall on a softer floor can be far less harmful than one onto stone or tiles.

And once you got some answers, the place to ask is any specialist flooring or tiling company.
