kitchen flooring--does the perfect one exist?

February 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm semi-custom building a house. I am committed to espresso cabinets because I love their elegance. This the kitchen I am inspired by, but am wanting to avoid tile grout (this is NOT my kitchen, yet!) I have young children so I would like something that is easy to clean up. The kitchen is an open concept and the surrounding flooring will be an espresso hardwood. Carrying these hardwoods into the kitchen would be too dark. But what are my options for kitchen flooring? The builder doesn't do polished concrete, unfortunately. I appreciate your creativity!

Love it! I have quartz tiles I believe that are 18 x 18 Very little grout lines showing. Mine are black that looks like someone threw a millions diamonds on them! GL Your espresso cabinets and hardwood floors if you have west or southern exposure they will show all the dust. I have Brazilian cherry and within an hr or 2 after my cleaning lady leaves you can see the dust!, just like my black laquer Kawai piano. My son has lite wood floors and they dont show the dust! So go for it and dont worry, get what you like since you will certainly have upkeep with or without children with your choices you have already made. It takes work to be elegant!

large porcelain tiles would be the best options, otherwise you could go for laminate tiles in a light wood look.

I have been studying ease of maintenance and hardwoods will be out. I like what Dezign and Serra have mentioned. I have porcelain tile with four pups and not one problem with grout. Get the right color and remember it comes in a sealed formula now.
