Whether it's for Taco Tuesday, wine night with the ladies, homework sessions, or chow time for our four-legged friends — the kitchen is truly the space we congregate in the most.  Because of that, our kitchen floors can take a bit of a beating — so it's important to choose flooring that is up for the task. Ideally our kitchen floors will be beautiful, easy, and of course, durable. Luckily, nowadays the variety of materials, colors and textures are endless — so it’s just a matter of knowing and narrowing down your options.  Ceramic, Porcelain and Stone tile are classic and smart choices for high traffic areas. They are low maintenance, yet extremely tough. Tile is a favorite amongst many for its extreme durability, and resistance to stains and moisture.  Wood is another widely popular choice for today's kitchens. A great option for those seeking the seamless lines of an open floor plan — wood feels soft underfoot and adds warmth to any space. Today's prefinished wood floors stand up especially well against heavy traffic and any accidental spills.  Vinyl is also a strong option to consider. Perhaps the easiest to maintain and the cushiest to stand on when cooking those big holiday meals — vinyl can provide a beautiful aesthetic, without breaking the bank. Just be sure to select a textured vinyl to provide traction, as this flooring can be extra slippery when wet.

Man caves and entertainment spaces, are often in finished basements, game rooms or garages which can be prone to moisture. Most flooring that you'd use in the main living area of your home can work in this space, but being conscious of possible moisture exposure can help you make the best choice. It is very important to ensure that the foundation is correctly sealed before fitting the final flooring type.   Luxury vinyl tiles and planks (LVT/LVP) could be a great option for your man cave. LVT is available in a number of designs including incredibly realistic stone looks and LVP is available in many wood looks from natural to distressed planks. Luxury Vinyl can stand up to moisture and is great in an area prone to spills. Ceramic tile is also a good option but would be a bit colder under your feet than LVT or LVP. Engineered hardwood can be installed on foundations, but if temperature shifts and moisture are a serious concern, LVT and LVP may be a more durable choice.   If moisture is not an issue for you, then the options are wide spread. You can use hardwood, plush carpet or anything in between. When choosing these types of flooring, it is important to use a high quality underlayment to combat moisture and maximize warmth, comfort and soundproofing. There are endless ways to turn your underused space into the ultimate entertainment room and be ready for the game in no time.   Get your flooring search started today.
