Which Flooring Is Best For Kitchens & Bathrooms?

When choosing the flooring for kitchens and bathrooms, you’ve got to think about function and practicality. There are many factors to consider and definitely floors to avoid! Carpets probably wouldn’t be the best to go in these rooms, for example. So, what’s the best option for these spaces? Read on to find out what we would recommend.


Before choosing your kitchen flooring, you need to think about what it needs to endure. Your kitchen is the hub of the house, so you’ll want something that can withstand quite a lot. It needs to hold up when confronted with splashes, food spills and the moisture created by cooking. It should also clean well and be easy to maintain, because of the amount of mess that preparing food can produce. So, which should you choose?

Engineered Wood

Engineered wood is a great option for your kitchen. Whilst still retaining the timeless style of hardwood, you can benefit from a more durable floor. Hardwood is vulnerable to warping and swelling when it comes into contact with moisture. Engineered floors are multi-layered, so are less susceptible to these disadvantages. If you choose a lacquered finish, you can benefit from water resistance that is appropriate for your kitchen.

Laminate is also a great option for kitchens. It’s highly scratch and stain resistant, so is perfect for messy rooms with heavy foot traffic! It can hold up well against moisture too. This type of floor is suitable for many budgets and available in lots of designs, with the wood effect being the most popular. To make it last for a long time, it should be maintained fairly regularly if it is in your kitchen.

Some laminate floorings are also good for use in bathrooms. Just ensure that you have chosen the type that is more resistant. Quick-Step laminate offers a ‘Hydroseal’ technology that features innovative solutions to improve the water resistance of the laminate.


Bathroom flooring is important to get right. You bathroom will be subject to lots of splashes, condensation and wet feet! You’ll need a highly water resistant floor to withstand the moisture that will be retained in this room.


LVT is a great bathroom flooring option. These are tiles of vinyl that are durable and hardwearing. They’re available in many different designs, so if you want the look of wood, stone or something more abstract, then you can benefit from these highly water resistant tiles. This type of floor is made up of multiple layers to help protect your home from moisture damage. What’s more, they’re simple to wipe clean!
