Although flooring choices run from ancient materials like stone to newer products like engineered floors, two of the best options remain: resilient materials including linoleum and cork, and ceramic and mosaic tile. For a variety of reasons, resilients work best in the kitchen, while tile is a natural in the bathroom.
Wood floors are an old-house staple—but in the harsh environment of the kitchen, wood will splinter, flake, and warp when exposed repeatedly to water. That's why early Americans quickly learned to seal wood floors with whatever was available, from homemade paint to wax and tung oil. Similarly, Victorian homeowners jumped at the chance to install water-resistant materials like linoleum and mosaic tile as soon as they became widely available in the last quarter of the 19th century.
The strength and durability of tile is perfect for any kitchen or bathroom floor. Tile flooring is valued for its beauty and resilience. If you can see beautiful tile flooring in your next remodeling project or room addition, the flooring professionals at Carpet Direct in Kansas City have colors, textures, sizes and design samples to show you.
