What makes suitable kitchen flooring?

A good kitchen floor is attractive, easy to clean, and resistant to abrasion and stains. Ceramic tiles and luxury vinyl planks or tiles are favorite flooring materials for kitchens, and many homeowners are discovering the unique characteristics of engineered wood.

Moore Floors, a flooring store in Southern Pines, North Carolina, has a wide selection of kitchen flooring.


Ceramic tiles tend to be a solid neutral color or simple in design and standard in size. In contrast, porcelain tile styles are abundant, especially wood look and stone look designs since they are homeowner favorites.

While both tile materials are made of clay hardened in a kiln, superior porcelain is denser and harder than ceramic and naturally waterproof, too.

Luxury vinyl

Luxury vinyl tiles are new floors that look like ceramic, stone, concrete, or hardwood flooring, and planks also look like wood. Choose a top-quality brand; the planks or tiles will be waterproof and have a thick transparent wear layer to protect the image layer.

Embossed in Register planks feel like wood and are most authentic since texturing is precisely aligned with the wood grain pattern.

Engineered wood

Engineered wood planks click and lock together to construct a floating floor laid over concrete, an existing floor, and a wood subfloor. Since a hardwood layer is positioned over a plywood base, new floors look the same as solid wood floors.

In addition, because of its makeup, the base tolerates moisture; thus, spills or water won't cause damage if cleaned up immediately.
