Kitchen flooring ideas: combining wood and ceramic tiles

When it comes to choosing what type of flooring is best for your kitchen, there are some many factors to consider, such as durability, maintenance and appeal. Specifically, kitchens need a long-lasting, easy to clean and stain and moisture resistant flooring, as the most severely pounded floor in the home. In this sense, hardwood and ceramic tiles are some of the most popular options for kitchen floors due to its technical qualities and aesthetic characteristics. You can choose one of them or combine them together, creating a customized look that will impress all your guests. Read on to find out how.

In the first place, we propose you to frame the ceramic tiles with wood laminate flooring, creating an elegant inlay pattern that looks very fancy and sophisticated. When should you use this installation design? When your kitchen has a classic or rustic style, full of personality and charm.

Alternatively, you can use hydraulic tiles to mark the limits of the sitting area. It is not just a matter of style but a practical solution to separate two spaces while adding an attractive focal point to the room.

If your kitchen is functional but a little bit boring, you should add a touch of colour to your space with ceramic tiles. Combine them with wood flooring, and you will get a beautiful look full of vitality.

Lastly, we suggest you separate the cooking zone from the rest with a change of flooring. By doing this, you will create a spacious effect that enlarges the room optically and facilitates the passage of natural light, as you can see in the picture above.
