Thinking about your custom home means considering every design decision down to the nuts and bolts—or in this case, the floors. Your custom kitchen is an area where you’re going to want to think about what’s available, what your lifestyle is, and what most closely matches your aesthetic sensibilities. With all of the options out there, after all, you’ve got plenty of factors to think about. Heading to any home improvement shop should allow you to see what’s out there in terms of looks, but if you’re looking for a breakdown of what each kitchen flooring material can offer your custom home, read on below to find out more.
Hardwood has been used just about as long as the modern home has been conceptualized. As a flooring material, there are plenty of positive aspects to this classy, traditional kitchen material. It’s a good pick for custom homes, too, as it can last through the years and offers numerous options and styles to choose from. This ranges from textures, hardness, plank size, and different colors depending on what kind of wood you choose. It’s versatile enough to fit any type of family, modern or traditional homes, and might be right for your custom home. Just remember that hardwood does require some maintenance and, depending on the wood you choose, may be prone to scratching if you don’t take care of it.
If you’re into a natural feel, you may want to use stone for your custom kitchen. It’s useful for retaining heat or keeping cool during the summer, making it excellent for extreme climates. It’s also water-resistant without getting overly slippery. Many people with young children choose stone flooring, too, thanks to the fact that spills and accidents aren’t going to cause any issues. This durable material isn’t going to leave you worried about your custom home’s kitchen flooring, so if that’s a pressing concern for you, think about using stone, but remember that stone isn’t as customizable as other options.
Speaking of durability, laminate certainly performs well, too. It’s scratch resistant and ideal for anyone who has large family gatherings or too many cooks in the kitchen. Of the materials we’ve talked about, laminate is the easiest to clean thanks to there being no grooves and not staining. Laminate is also the most customizable option there, with several patterns and styles to choose from so that you can pick between something that mimics hardwood or something that looks more like traditional tiling. Laminate may not be as fancy as natural stone or hardwood, but it’s certainly got its place in numerous custom homes.
