Traditional cabinets tend to have more detail than other types of cabinets, but the details can range from simple to highly intricate.

The Best Options for Kitchen or Bathroom Flooring

If you’ve been thinking about remodeling your kitchen or bathroom in Toledo or Perrysburg Ohio, you may be considering different flooring types and which one will be best for your project.

Unlike other rooms in your home, your kitchen and bathroom have to deal with the possibility that the floors are going to get wet on a regular basis. Water getting splashed on the floor while doing dishes, spills, and a bathtub that overflowed are just a few different reasons why the floors in these rooms are at risk for water damage. 

For the reasons listed above, hardwood floors may not be the best choice when remodeling these areas of your home. You don’t have to completely rule out hardwood floors, but other flooring options can give you the same look and will stand up against water and dampness. Carpeting is in the same realm, but can actually cause more issues since damp carpets can lead to mold issues, which no homeowner wants to deal with.

When remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, vinyl tiling and ceramic tile are few good choices. Vinyl tiles come in all shapes, colors and patterns these days. You no longer have to worry about vinyl tiles looking fake or cheap. Best yet, they now come in styles that mimic hardwood flooring and expensive stone tiles. Vinyl floor tiles can even be grouted for a more refined and expensive look. The same goes for ceramic tiling, which now comes in patterns and styles that mimic hardwood floors.
