The kitchen has become one of the most important and busiest rooms in the home, which is why we need resistant, durable and waterproof flooring. That is why, when choosing kitchen flooring, we must take into account not only the aesthetic factor but also the practical one.

Aspects to take into account when choosing kitchen flooring

There are a number of factors to take into consideration when it comes to choosing flooring for the kitchen. Among them, we highlight the following.


Maintenance and cleaning

Regular maintenance of the floor will help it retain its strength for a longer period of time. Cleaning is a constant chore in the kitchen, so it is essential to choose a floor that is easy to clean and maintain. Smooth, seamless floors make daily cleaning easier and prevent dirt build-up. While marble floors are excellent for their long-term durability, they are also excellent for their relatively minimal maintenance. I recommend reading the post on how to clean marble.


Strength and durability

The kitchen floor is probably the flooring in the home that suffers the most wear and tear due to the constant movement of people. That is why the kitchen floor must be sufficiently resistant to withstand impacts and dampness. In this sense, a good kitchen floor would be marble or granite, which, if well sealed and with a thickness greater than 2 cm, would comfortably meet our expectations.

The kitchen is generally a place where there is permanent contact with water and humidity. For this reason, the paving must be not very porous, which is why a waterproofing protector is applied to the natural stone to protect it from damp and filtrations.

On the other hand, in order to avoid slipping, it is recommended that the surface of the paving has an optimum grip to guarantee safety.


Style and design

From an aesthetic point of view, the kitchen floor should bring personality and freshness to the room, as well as adapting to our lifestyle. Fortunately, there is a wide range of marble in different colours, suitable for any style.

Finally, if you have a limited budget, the price is a factor to take into account, as it varies depending on the type of flooring. In this sense, it is worth assessing the material based on its durability to see whether or not it is worth the investment.
