A small kitchen with good flooring goes a long way in complementing its interiors. You should choose the type and style of flooring in your kitchen in relation to the decor. There are several small kitchen flooring types. Including ceramic, slate tiles, wood, and linoleum. Ceramic tiles are a good option of small kitchen flooring types. Small tiles make the room look smaller, so use 12 x 12-inch tiles to make the kitchen look larger. The room will look wider if you lay the tiles in a diagonal pattern. The light texture of ceramic tiles also makes the kitchen look larger. Lighter textures on the floor make a room look larger, making slate a natural option for your kitchen floors. The sand color of slate blends in with natural elements so high-traffic areas such as the kitchen do not appear as dirty, making the kitchen appear both larger and cleaner.
Galley-style kitchens work well with wood flooring. Long wood planks make the room look larger. Stick to a lighter wood with yellow or tan coloring. Some options include oak, maple, and light pine. These woods are durable and make the space appear larger. Wood should be installed perpendicular to the cabinets. Then, another choice is linoleum flooring. Linoleum flooring provides a variety of flooring options that make your kitchen appear larger. Easy to attach and to clean, linoleum comes in hundreds of patterns and dozens of colors. A beautiful floor enhances the look of a small kitchen and goes a long way in determining the overall look and feel. So, if you haven’t paid attention to the flooring in your small kitchen, it’s time to sit up and take notice.
