Tile is one of the most popular choices for a kitchen, whether it is ceramic/porcelain tile or stone tile. Stone can bring a luxurious atmosphere to your kitchen, along with natural warmth, and there are many options, including granite, slate and travertine. If you do not like the downsides and maintenance of stone but love the look, you may want to look into laminate flooring, which can actually closely resemble stone. Hardwood flooring is another popular choice with the ability to last a lifetime if it is cared for properly.
