Choosing the right kitchen flooring idea for your scheme is important. Not only does it need to be a practical choice, but it needs to complement your kitchen design — something you may well have spent a lot of money on. 

While different types of flooring can act as a simple, neutral base for your kitchen, it can also take on a more prominent role in your scheme — acting as a feature, helping to add drama, texture and design flair.
