Your kitchen is the beating centre of your home, bursting with activity. It’s the place where you fire up the stove to cook a world-class meal and where you gently greet the morning with a long, luxurious breakfast. As the central heart of your busy life, your kitchen deserves flooring that can cope with the daily hustle and bustle.
Even the most refined chef can’t avoid spilling food sometimes or prevent a splash of water from escaping the sink. What’s more, your kitchen is where hygiene matters the most — so kitchen flooring that can handle intensive cleaning is an absolute must.
Why you’ll love Quick-Step in your kitchen
Years of carefree quality
Whether you choose laminate or vinyl flooring, your floor will serve as the durable ‘cooking base’ of your kitchen for years to come. That’s why you’re offered a 25-year* warranty on all our laminate flooring, and a 20-year warranty on the Livyn line of luxury vinyl flooring. Choose the perfect underlay from a wide selection to enhance the pleasure and beauty of your vinyl or laminate kitchen floor.
Flooring for every taste
Looking for an authentic, traditional wood grain design? Or do you prefer the exotic look of tropical woods? Perhaps you’re a fan of natural stone flooring. Whatever your favourite style, Quick-Step has the laminate or vinyl flooring of your dreams — and the perfect skirting boards to match. Wide or narrow, bevelled or square, planks or tiles: the choice is yours.
One floor for kitchen and living room
Whether your kitchen opens into the living room area or they are two separate spaces, it’s a good idea to use the same flooring in both rooms. It will create a calming sense of cohesion and make your home seem bigger — especially if you carefully choose the direction in which to lay your floor planks.
Kitchen floors are constantly put to the test. A sharp knife falling edge-down; a glass spilling its bubbly contents in transit: your kitchen floor could tell you stories. But thanks to the patented Scratch Guard protective technology, laminate and vinyl kitchen flooring can easily withstand whatever you throw at it.
A breeze to maintain
Looking for a kitchen floor that’s 100% waterproof? Then Livyn luxury vinyl flooring is the floor of your dreams. Laminate won’t let you down either: thanks to HydroSeal coating technology, Quick-Step Signature, Eligna, Classic, Impressive Patterns, Impressive (Ultra) and Majestic laminate floors always remain high and dry.
* Exception: Livyn luxury vinyl & Creo laminate come with a 20-year warranty.
As kitchens tend to be both heavily-trafficked and regularly exposed to moisture, food and cleaning products, it is important to choose flooring that can stand up to tough conditions. Kitchens are examples of rooms that are used by everybody in the home many times per day, and host a wide variety of different activities. Ceramic and stone come to mind for their durability, but they feel cold and hard on the feet.
