The perfect kitchen floor: vinyl vs. ceramic

Dropped sandwiches, spilled drinks, cooking experiments: your kitchen can sometimes look like a battlefield. That’s why you want a floor that stands up to those challenges for many years to come. Ceramic tiles get a lot of love for their robustness and ease of maintenance. But did you know that vinyl tiles can offer the same sleek look with even higher levels of comfort?

Built for sticky situations

Like stone or ceramic flooring, vinyl tiles are perfect for a kitchen: they’re easy to clean and completely waterproof. Drop a can of tomatoes while cooking? Had a dishwasher accident? Spill some wine? No problem: a quick mop-up and there won’t be a trace of it left. In fact, vinyl kitchen flooring can handle just about anything.

The advantages of vinyl over classic tiles

In addition to ease of maintenance and the ability to handle virtually all kinds of messes, vinyl kitchen flooring offers even more advantages:

  • Better acoustics: vinyl absorbs sound far better than ceramic, bringing more peace to your kitchen.
  • More comfort: not only is vinyl flooring softer and more silent than ceramic flooring, it’s also compatible with underfloor heating
  • Renovation-friendly: just as easy to install as laminate, vinyl flooring is perfect for DIYers. Rigid vinyl can even be placed on top of an existing floor, making it perfect for renovations as well.
  • Many design options: with vinyl kitchen flooring, you have free rein to choose the design that’s right for you. Do you like a warm natural wood look, or prefer the robust sleekness of modern concrete? It’s all possible!
