Homeowners and decorators can make significant changes to the appearance of their kitchen by changing an element as simple as the flooring. Many modern homes contain ceramic tiling or wood floors in the kitchen, but few people realise the updates that have been made to vinyl flooring. You may find vinyl flooring to be a very appealing option for your kitchen with the right decorative ideas in mind.

Pre-Cut

You can use pre-cut square tiles that already have glue on the back of them or you can use linoleum which is a rolled material that you must cut and apply the glue yourself. Some stores like Ikea sell sections of vinyl flooring in checkered, coloured patterns. These are typically sold in sections and are fairly inexpensive.

Realistic Pattern

Many manufactures offer services that print images right onto the vinyl flooring that can imitate other flooring surfaces. You could have brick, wood, bamboo, or grass mat patterns printed onto the vinyl to create a vivid, realistic look.

Ceramic/Marble

Some vinyl flooring options include ceramic imitation. They are meant to have the look of ceramic tile without the permanence or the cost. Granted, close up the difference will be clear but from human standing level the look is still very similar. There are also vinyl flooring sets that are made to look like marble. This is a great option for homeowners who enjoy the look of marble flooring but don't want to pay outrageous amounts for it.

Diamond

The diamond pattern is also a very popular pattern of vinyl. It has a solid diamond in the centre with the rest of the tile a consistent colour and is good to match kitchens and bathrooms and also gives a classy look to a foyer.

Floral

A floral pattern is also a good choice for kitchens because it's simple yet elegant. Floral patterns, when carefully chosen, will complement just about any other colour you may have in your kitchen. You should also take your cabinetry and countertop colour into consideration when choosing a vinyl flooring colour.
