Kitchen / June 22, 2018 /
The main concern with your kitchen floors is of course the look, but also safety concerns. There are trendy kitchen flooring options out there that are easy on the eyes, easy to clean and help prevent slips. Cork and linoleum are two excellent choices for a domestic kitchen that wants to mimic a professional setup. If you are set on harder flooring that is more prone to slips, invest in some well padded shoes to help prevent any accidents.
While kitchen islands are a feature you will find in many kitchens, the idea of utilizing them as a central gathering point is what homeowners are remodeling for. We have known for a while now that dining rooms were on the out. But, now I am seeing a lot of people forgoing traditional seating and incorporating most or all of their seating at an island or a peninsula. People entertain, and families are more on the go, so they want flexible seating near the kitchen. If you have a kitchen island, getting on board with this trend will be easy for you. Create some seating arrangements and a centerpiece to make it a gathering point for all.
