The kitchen is tough on floors. How can you choose one that is low-maintenance? You have spatters and stains from inevitable spills onto the flooring. On top of this, you have extremes of heat and heavy appliances which stand in place for years. Then there are the sharp or heavy objects falling such as knives, cans, and pans which can puncture or crack the flooring.
The virtues of ceramic tile for bathrooms and kitchens are well known, but many of those advantages also make it a good choice for living rooms. Ceramic tile is durable and easy to maintain. It can handle even the highest traffic locations without showing much wear. Spills, chips and other accidents really aren't an issue provided the floor was installed correctly. And the design advantages are undeniable: modern printing techniques give you a wealth of aesthetic options for creating a floor that is truly unique to your living area.
Vinyl is a relatively new surface covering, which has only been developed into flooring in the past few decades. It is a man-made material, similar to plastic, with many of the same resilient and resistant properties. This makes it proof against almost all staining agents and makes the surface relatively easy to wipe clean of spills and splashes. Vinyl is also a tough flooring material that doesn’t easily rip, tear, or scratch.
Brick flooring is very similar to stone and concrete in that it is a hard surface material, that is also permeable and needs to be sealed. However, once sealed it becomes a low-maintenance kitchen flooring option, that only has to be swept free of debris every few days. The surface sealant will have to be reapplied periodically, but as long as that is done on a regular basis, a well-installed brick floor can potentially last a lifetime.
