The kitchen is the heart of the home. It's so important to mind the materials and the different elements that make it up! Plain, marbled, cement or wood effect, the different types of kitchen flooring from the PORCELANOSA Group can decorate any project, adding style and functionality to the room.
When designing interiors, choosing the right flooring should be one of the first things to think about, since it's a key part of the overall layout. In the case of kitchen flooring, this decision needs to be made even more wisely, since the finish, quality and strength of the material selected will directly influences its use.

Here are some tips for choosing kitchen flooring correctly:
It is important that the kitchen floor material be resistant to chemicals and stains so it can stay in perfect condition for as long as possible.
Kitchen floors with a matte finish reduce the risk of household accidents by avoiding slips, especially when liquid is spilled onto the floor.
It is important that the kitchen floor be properly integrated with the furniture, lighting and the rest of the decoration to yield a visually consistent interior design. This will make the space more harmonious and pleasant to look at.
Design is another important factor when choosing a kitchen floor. There are different patterns and shapes that can completely transform the space, giving it a personal and original touch. You can opt for a design that combines with the overall kitchen décor, or choose a design that stands out by itself and grabs your attention.
This is a determining factor in the care, durability and maintenance of kitchen floors. It is important to choose a material that is resistant to wear, stains and chemicals. Some of the most recommended materials for kitchen floors are porcelain stoneware tiles, since they are very resistant and durable.
The colour of the kitchen floor is another factor to consider. It is essential to choose a colour that doesn't show dirt, considering this is a room where food is cooked and handled. Dark colours and white are the least recommended, since they dirty the kitchen floor and require more maintenance. It is better to go with light or intermediate shades that conceal stains and imperfections.
We recommend choosing a dark colour, such as grey or black, as this will make cleaning and maintenance easier. It will also keep you from having to paint them every so often, as would be the case if the grout joints were of a light colour.
The colour, as well as helping to disguise stains or impacts, contributes to a sense of space. If your kitchen is small, consider choosing a light shade, as this will increase that feeling of spaciousness.
Finally, if your kitchen is on the roomier side, consider choosing large tiles. These pieces do not usually have visible joints and enhance the aesthetic value of the space, which can be particularly important if you want to create a kitchen with a more modern and sophisticated look.
Hydraulic tiles bring back that interior design typical of 1950s Spain, with their neutral tones giving a sense of dynamism to the space. Kitchens with hydraulic flooring are notable for their versatile character, as well as for their decorative carpet look. This option is excellent for differentiating rooms through flooring, making it the right choice for those who want to add a touch of originality and style to their home.
