Luxury fitted kitchens are one of the best ways to make sure you get exactly what you want from your room design. When you buy something readymade you will not be able to have much control over the finer details. You'll have choice between a few things, and you might be able to choose specific work surfaces, handles and details, but there will be significant limits. Luxury fitted kitchens give you the chance to get everything just so, and make sure you keep within your budget constraints.
Getting every little thing right means a lot of planning. It's a good chance to refresh everything which needs refreshing. When it comes to flooring it's important that everything falls within your budget and is going to last for the life of your kitchen.
Flooring is one of the most important factors when it comes to your luxury fitted kitchen, not least because it needs to be laid before you have all your fixtures and fittings put in. White goods and cabinets will need to be laid on top of the new flooring, and it's a lot of work to make any changes once everything has been fitted.
When it comes to flooring it's difficult to know where to start. The important thing to remember is your kitchen is not like every other kind of room. It needs certain particular details to make sure it can meet in the moist, warm conditions that a kitchen has to be in. Carpet will never work in a kitchen for the simple reason that it will not last. The moisture levels and the heat will cause mold, and odors and spilt food can easily become trapped in the fibers. Something more solid and easier to clean is a far superior option for your luxury fitted kitchen, and it's far more likely to do your new room justice.
Tiles are available in all sorts of patterns and colors, and they're really hardwearing. The issue with them is that they can be cold and slippery, and they're quite expensive as a type of flooring. Porcelain is cheaper than stone or marble but they're still slippery.
Vinyl flooring tiles are easy to wipe clean and they're also much cheaper. The styles have come on incredibly since vinyl first appeared on the market so that not only are the tiles cheaper but they're also much better looking than they used to be. The padding backing makes them feel better underfoot but they can also reduce noise levels and last for years as well.
