What Is the Best Kitchen Flooring in 2023?

2019 Statista poll shows that roughly 50% of people were okay with spending up to an hour on weeknight meal prep. With all that time in one place, the floors need to look and feel the best. However, what qualifies as the “best” is conditional.

Find materials that define “what is the best kitchen flooring for you” instead of searching for the mythical “best floor ever.” To do this, designers who provide kitchen remodeling in Dallas often look into aesthetics, utility, and quality.

Address Your Quality Needs First

We recommend function before form when replacing kitchen floors. Because of high moisture levels and foot traffic in the kitchen, look for water-resistant and durable flooring materials.

Putting quality concerns first can also keep you healthy. The EWG warns against installing floors that release harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as vinyl, laminate, and synthetic carpets. 

Instead, consider FSC-certified solid wood, natural linoleum, or tile. Many of these materials can withstand the weight of a falling pot or resist stains from spilled sauce. 

Keep Your Budget in Mind

Often, those who use laminate and vinyl while knowing potential health risks do so because of their affordability. While budget consciousness helps, we caution against sacrificing quality to that extent. Instead, look into the cost of each popular choice for kitchen flooring in 2023:

  • Stone tile: $5 to $16 per square foot
  • Hardwood: $4 to $13 per square foot
  • Ceramic tile: $0.50 to $5 per square foot
  • Porcelain tile: $3 to $10 per square foot

These prices depend on the type of stone, wood, or other material, its popularity, and the size of the kitchen. Some contractors increase the price for larger rooms, so always double-check with an estimate.

Plan to Make Your Kitchen Floor Presentable

With these sturdy and spill-resistant materials in mind, answering, “What is the best kitchen flooring for you?” becomes easier. Now, you can focus on more visual, tactile, and maintenance details, including:

  • Which types of flooring do you prefer?
  • How does the material feel against your skin?
  • How often do you plan on cleaning your kitchen floors?
  • How much time can you dedicate to kitchen floor care?
  • Does the floor color coordinate well with nearby objects?
  • Do you like patterns in your flooring, or do you prefer a solid color?
  • How long do you expect to keep this floor, and can the material last that long?

Once you answer these questions, look back at your materials and see which fits more of your requirements.

NG Platinum Homes completed a total universal design/ handicapable bathroom for us in August 2022. The process took six weeks during which the typical builder’s master bathroom... was demolished to the studs and the foundation was rebuilt with a new shower pan with the proper grading for a curbless shower. Two doorways were modified to enlarge the openings. The former shower stall became a built in closet with adjustable shelves; lighting was updated with LED fixtures; faucets were installed with pull out sprayers; an exhaust fan with a light, nightlight and heater was also installed, as well as a new shower system. Every surface was updated and every wall repainted. Throughout the whole process NG Platinum Homes was supervising and dropping in to check on the details and progress. There was daily communication. The workers were all courteous and respectful of our home environment. We became familiar with them and felt comfortable with their presence. We now have a bathroom that will allow anyone to safely shower regardless of any physical limitations caused by injuries, surgeries, medical conditions, or advanced age. We highly recommend NG Platinum Homes.read more

I recommend them strongly and will hire them to renovate our kitchen.read more
