3 DIY Kitchen Flooring Ideas on a Budget
Let these stylish yet affordable solutions inspire you if you’re looking for kitchen flooring ideas on a budget. There is no way to replace a worn kitchen floor, regardless of architectural considerations, as it is dangerous to walk and cook in a kitchen with an uneven or broken floor. That doesn’t mean you have to spend hundreds of dollars on stone tiles or real wood, though.
While kitchen flooring ideas with affordable materials may require a bit more creativity and craftsmanship than, say, marble, they can provide a similar aesthetic — as well as exceptional staying power. You’ll be amazed at how much you can do with these basic, inexpensive kitchen flooring ideas.
1. VINYL TILE
Is it possible that this floor is made of marble? Chris Loves has done an amazing job remodeling this kitchen. Julia appears to be opulent, despite being created on a shoestring budget and having luxury vinyl tiles rather than actual stone tiles. Tile grouting – ‘yep! this LVT is sliding!’ – with a silver grout is the key to the secret to professional appearance for remodelers.
You might ask if they really advocate linoleum. The reality is that linoleum has a terrible reputation because almost everyone has lived in a rental with an old, faded linoleum floor that they despised. However, linoleum is a great kitchen flooring option comparable to vinyl. It is also a linen-based, renewable and biodegradable alternative to vinyl tiles.
3. CERAMIC TILE
With good reason, ceramic tiles are a classic kitchen floor. Ceramic tiles are both robust and hygienic; spills are easily wiped up and ceramic flooring can last a long time if properly maintained.
