What is in your budget? If you cannot spend more than $1,000 on a kitchen floor, then granite, solid hardwood, and engineered wood are not options.
Where is the floor being installed? Will the flooring be in a wet location, semi-wet, dry, high-traffic, etc.? How will the selected flooring hold up in these areas?
What about maintenance needs? This is more of a personality decision than a flooring decision any type of flooring–even the least durable–can be used for decades if properly maintained. But if you don’t normally like to maintain your floor per manufacturers’ instructions, then you need to reconsider your choice.
All of these questions can easily be answered with the assistance of a professional. At S&J Flooring Inc. we will gladly help you figure out what is the best option for you.
