Decorators from all around the world opt for a white floor in the kitchen because of its refinement, the purity it symbolises and because white matches any decorative style. Displayed in this post are different types of floors from which you can choose the one best suited for your project.
White floor in the kitchen: What are the different types?
Looking to put a white floor in your kitchen? There are many types available.
Hereunder, we’ll describe its main characteristics, so you know which one to choose.
Stoneware, or ceramic, is the traditional kitchen floor, which looks like a red body tile. Amongst stoneware’s notable advantages is its low porosity composition, which turns out to be very practical in a kitchen as it is a sturdy and easy to clean material.
Thanks to its low porosity, its large format and the variety of its patterns, the porcelain floor has earned a well-deserved place in kitchen designs of any style. To be more specific, the Dekton floors are known to offer the most high-end range of this type of floors:
- They are super-compact.
- Their large sizes allow for endless design possibilities.
- They are also very resistant to scratches, stains, heat, and abrasion.
If you are looking for industrially inspired design, we recommend the Industrial by Dekton collection. The metal’s imperfections and antiquated stone will give the final touch to this kitchen style. For a white finish, Nilium offers models inspired by metallic silver tones, which create a delicate cocktail of whites and greys.
Wood is the undisputed rustic style’s main character. Even if some think that wooden floors in the kitchen can deteriorate faster, if it is well cared for and made of high-quality laminated wood, there is no reason this would happen. You can, however, opt for easier maintenance solutions, like the one offered by the Wild by Dekton collection; inspired by wood, but with increased longevity and durability.
The industrial style trend has also invaded the kitchens. If you are planning to go for this style for your kitchen, choosing floors and walls made of micro-concrete is ideal to create clean looking continuous surfaces.
