Is laminated or wood floor good for kitchen?

Postby jacob.sumith » Mon Feb 08, 2021 6:53 pm

Kitchen floor is too cold. It just has two layers of vinyl on top of concrete. Lounge and hallway floors feel less colder as they have a layer of lamination on the concrete.

But the concern is that laminate or wooden floor will get quickly damaged in a (somewhat) wet area.

Please recommend suitable floors that are durable for kitchen (where it gets wet - water, spills - and there is usually lots of traffic)

Hi jacobsumith
Laminate is fine in a kitchen provided you buy one that is designed to be used in a room where there might be water spills. Look for a manufacturer that makes waterproof laminate and offers a long guarantee. For example Quickstep offer a 25 year guarantee.
