Kitchen Vinyl Flooring

Kitchen vinyl flooring offers an attractive combination of functionality and affordability for commercial restaurant settings. This resilient material comes in a wide range of styles, mimicking the look of natural stone or wood at a fraction of the cost. Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are a trendy option, offering exceptional durability that can withstand heavy foot traffic and dropped utensils. The vinyl’s non-porous surface makes it easy to clean and resistant to spills, grease, and even some harsh chemicals often used in commercial kitchens. This translates to lower maintenance costs and a more hygienic environment for food preparation.

Waterproof Kitchen Flooring

For areas prone to frequent spills and moisture, waterproof kitchen flooring provides an extra layer of protection. Unlike water-resistant options, waterproof flooring can withstand even standing water for extended periods without warping or delaminating. This makes it ideal for zones near sinks, dishwashers, and ice machines. Several materials offer excellent waterproof qualities, including luxury vinyl tile with a waterproof core and certain types of laminate specifically designed for wet environments. These options ensure long-lasting performance and peace of mind, knowing that even a serious spill won’t damage your subfloor or compromise the integrity of your flooring system. The added water resistance also simplifies cleaning routines, allowing for mopping without worrying about moisture seeping through the cracks.

Best Flooring for Kitchen

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to kitchen flooring. The ideal choice hinges on understanding your unique needs and priorities. We are here to guide you through the selection process and help you find the perfect balance between functionality, budget, and aesthetics.

  • Budget Considerations: We offer a variety of flooring options to suit different budgets. From cost-effective luxury vinyl tile that provides excellent value to premium choices like natural stone or high-end epoxy, we have solutions that deliver long-term benefits without breaking the bank.
  • Traffic and Usage: The level of traffic your kitchen experiences plays a crucial role. High-volume restaurants with constant activity require a more robust solution compared to a smaller kitchen with limited use. We’ll assess your specific needs and recommend flooring options that can truly withstand the test of time, from durable LVT for moderate traffic to heavy-duty epoxy for demanding environments.
  • Design and Style: While functionality is key, don’t underestimate the aesthetic potential of your kitchen flooring. The right choice can contribute to a professional and inviting atmosphere. We offer a wide range of styles and finishes to complement your overall restaurant design. Explore options that create a clean, modern look or incorporate patterns and textures for a touch of personality.

These guys have done such an amazing job with our flooring. We have had an extension so have had all trades people in over the past few months and these guys have been the best, so friendly and efficient, some flooring wasn't up to scratch so they sent it back and got us new materials to ensure the job was completed to a high standard.

Generally, no. Carpet is difficult to clean and maintain in a high-moisture, high-traffic environment. Spills and grease can easily stain and harbour bacteria. Opt for non-porous, easy-to-clean flooring materials.
Extremely important. Spills and grease are common occurrences in kitchens, making slip resistance crucial for staff safety. Look for flooring with textured surfaces or a high coefficient of friction rating.
Daily cleaning with a disinfectant solution is recommended for most kitchens. For high-traffic areas, consider more frequent cleaning throughout the day. Maintain a regular cleaning schedule to ensure optimal hygiene and prevent dirt and grime buildup.
This depends on the existing material and the new flooring you choose. Some options like luxury vinyl tile can be installed over a level, smooth subfloor. Consult a flooring professional to assess your specific situation and determine the best approach.
