Kitchen / June 22, 2018 /
When it comes to flooring, consider slip resistance, ease of maintenance and porosity. Stone floors, which are somewhat porous, for instance, may need periodic resealing. If so, ask how often, and think about whether you want to deal with that process. Hardwood floors are beautiful, but be aware that they wear out faster by the fridge, stove and sink than other areas. Hard, natural stone works wonderfully, and the earthy look and feel of it is very popular.
As you are designing your new kitchen, keep in mind the concept of architectural integrity. This means that you will want to produce a cohesive renovation by figuring out what will gel with the rest of your house. If you do not, your kitchen will stick out like a sore thumb and all of your hard work will be getting the wrong kind of attention.
