Kitchen Flooring Types Overview for Homeowners | NEWPRO

Kitchen Flooring Types: A Complete Overview for Homeowners

While cabinetry and countertops are some of the biggest parts of a kitchen design, the floor is also a vital factor in a kitchen’s visual appeal and functionality. There are countless kitchen flooring types to choose from, and each flooring choice has benefits and disadvantages. 

Homeowners need to choose a type of flooring that can stand up to the wear and tear of daily use. We at NEWPRO Home Solutions want you to know about some of the best kitchen flooring materials, as well as our lineup of LuxLife luxury vinyl plank flooring.

Popular Kitchen Flooring Options

Kitchens are one of the most high-traffic areas of the home. Durable flooring is essential to withstand the volume of foot traffic. Kitchen floors should be stain-resistant and water-resistant to avoid water damage or discoloration. The ideal kitchen flooring option should also be budget-friendly. Some materials strike this balance better than others but may require more maintenance.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood floors add warmth and comfort to any kitchen. Though hardwood usually goes best with a rustic or traditional style, it can also complement a modern kitchen design. The natural look of hardwood often raises a home’s resale value, as many buyers find it a desirable feature. Hardwood does tend to require more maintenance than other flooring materials because it’s more vulnerable to scratching and moisture.

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl is both versatile and durable, making it a popular choice for large families with high-traffic kitchens. Vinyl can also mimic the look and underfoot feel of natural materials. From natural stone tile to solid hardwood, vinyl is a cost-effective, durable substitute.

Ceramic Tile Flooring

Ceramic tile is a tough flooring material that stands up to moisture. It comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns, giving homeowners the flexibility to customize their designs. Ceramic floor tiles can suit any style, from bold colors and geometric patterns to classic designs with timeless neutrals.

Laminate Flooring

Laminate is designed to mimic the look of hardwood while being more durable and budget-friendly. Laminate is also easier to install than hardwood, further reducing the cost. Busy households that can’t keep up with the maintenance requirements of hardwood may prefer this alternative.

NEWPRO Home Solutions Presents: LuxLife Flooring

What if you could have the look and feel of any high-end flooring material with none of the drawbacks? Our LuxLife line of luxury vinyl plank flooring allows homeowners to replicate the rich hues of natural stone or the vibrant grain of wood flooring. LuxLife flooring is waterproof and low-maintenance, so you can enjoy worry-free kitchen flooring without compromising on style. We offer a flooring package for every kitchen remodeling budget.

EcoLUX Flooring

Enjoy premium flooring at an affordable price point. Our EcoLUX flooring offers durability and waterproofing with a protective top layer.

SuperLUX Flooring

Completely waterproof to keep up with a busy home, our SuperLUX flooring includes a protective layer for long-lasting durability. 

UltraLUX Flooring

Durability and elegance meet with a 20-mil commercial-grade protective layer. UltraLUX flooring is the peak of luxury flooring with no need for time-consuming maintenance.

Luxury Vinyl Planks vs Sheet Vinyl: What’s the Difference?

Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring is thicker and more durable than sheet vinyl. It replicates the look of natural stone or wood without the maintenance requirements. In most situations, LVP is also easier to install than sheet vinyl, which can balance out its cost per square foot.

Choosing the Right Kitchen Flooring Material

When choosing which kitchen flooring material is best for your home, there are several factors to keep in mind. 


Consider the level of foot traffic your kitchen sees and how much maintenance you’re willing to do. High-traffic kitchens might benefit from durable, easy-to-clean materials like vinyl or tile flooring. For those prioritizing comfort and warmth, laminate or hardwood flooring may be more appealing. Just keep in mind that a more delicate flooring option will require more maintenance.


While natural stone and solid hardwood offer timeless elegance, they come at a higher cost compared to options like vinyl or laminate. Before choosing a flooring material, you should decide on a budget and stick to it. At NEWPRO Home Solutions, we also offer financing plans so you can create your dream kitchen without breaking the bank.


Naturally, you’ll want to choose a flooring material that you like the look of. Make sure you pick a material that goes well with other elements of your kitchen, like the cabinets and countertops.
