  • Kid-proof kitchens: The best flooring ideas for family-friendly kitchens

    November 21st, 2022

    When searching for new flooring for your kitchen, there are so many options that it can feel overwhelming. Even with one provider, there is so much choice. For example, Pro-Tek™ offers a huge selection of kitchen flooring, from wood-effect to stone tile, all in a variety of colours.

    Your options don’t end with choosing a texture or colour either – you can lay your luxury vinyl tile (LVT) to create various patterns, such as herringbone or subway style, for a look that’s unique to your space. 

    For a family kitchen, there are lots of factors to consider. You not only need a hardwearing floor that can last even the heaviest of traffic as children stampede from one room to another, but you also need to consider a floor that can handle the daily stains that can happen too. Added to this, design preference and colour schemes, it is no wonder it can feel overwhelming.

    Fortunately, by choosing luxury vinyl tiles, you can be sure of hardwearing, durable and practical floors ideal for busy family kitchens, so all you need to think about is what design suits your space the best. If you’re looking for inspiration, read on for our best ideas for kitchen flooring that levels up your interior design while maintaining an inviting, relaxed, family-friendly vibe.

    Choose herringbone vinyl flooring for a timeless kitchen design

    Herringbone vinyl flooring is classic and timeless. It suits almost any kitchen style and adds a sense of luxury with minimal effort. For modern and minimalist spaces, opt for luxurious grey herringbone from Pro-Tek™’s kitchen flooring collection. Paired with a monochromatic kitchen, grey herringbone flooring will instantly elevate your space.

    For more rustic-styled homes, combining natural textures like warm natural wood tones with the herringbone design adds a sense of opulence and style while still feeling homely. For a more dramatic interior design style, choose dark wood floors with rich forest greens or blues for the cabinetry. If a bright space with lots of natural light is on your wishlist, keep cabinets white or pale grey and choose a light-toned wood herringbone.

    Pro-Tek herringbone flooring is also a great choice for the rest of your home, making it easy for you to create a cohesive design throughout your spaces.

    Light vinyl flooring that’s childproof

    A lot of people think that light-toned vinyl flooring is a terrible idea for busy family homes or high-traffic areas, but that’s not the case at all. On the contrary, light-coloured vinyl flooring is an excellent choice for busy family homes, particularly in high-traffic areas like the kitchen, where it’s likely that things will get dropped from time to time. The key is choosing a patterned floor where crumbs, dust and dirt can be easily hidden.

    ProTek kitchen flooring offers the perfect balance of function and form – it’s hardwearing, 100% waterproof, easy to maintain, and compatible with underfloor heating. In addition, light-coloured vinyl flooring easily hides small scratches and pieces of dust or dirt thanks to the combination of natural texture and durable coating so that you won’t be constantly cleaning your kitchen floor.

    Light-toned vinyl flooring is great for all decor styles. Whether you prefer sleek and modern or bright and colourful, choosing a light-coloured vinyl will allow your style and family to evolve over time without clashing or becoming impractical.

    Dark vinyl flooring to add drama and hide messes

    Dark vinyl flooring is a great option for busy family kitchens.

    Dark floors look clean for longer, hide dirt and messes, and are easy to match with other colours – all Pro-Tek™ kitchen flooring is 100% waterproof, too, so you don’t have to worry about specialist care. This makes it perfect for families who want to express their personalities through elegant design choices while still ensuring that the home is practical for all members of the family.

    Pro-Tek™ offers a variety of dark-coloured kitchen flooring. Dark wood can add a sense of drama while maintaining a natural look, or choose slate tiles for a more monochromatic effect. Combine this with various patterns like herringbone for a stylish look with intrigue.

    Stone tile effect floors offer luxury and practicality

    The stone tile effect vinyl flooring is a great choice if you want something that looks natural but has all of the added benefits of Pro-Tek kitchen flooring. Our floors are durable, stain-resistant, waterproof and even scratch-resistant.

    Natural textures have been massively popular for some time now; not only do natural materials feel more inviting, but they also help to add character to your home. Slate or stone effect tiles are easy to clean and maintain, which makes them perfect for family kitchens, while still looking high end and luxurious.
