For many people, the kitchen is one of the most used rooms in their home, some people even go so far as to say that the kitchen is in fact the heart of the home and that all activity in their home revolves around the kitchen.
Whether you are a culinary enthusiast or a microwave food expert, your kitchen is somewhere that you spend a lot of your time at home, from making that first cup of tea or coffee in the morning to evening meals and getting sneaky snacks for movie nights or to cure chocolate cravings.
During the festive season in particular, you may find yourself being host to more guests than usual and might even be so prepared that you have stocked up on Christmas treats, food and drink to offer to your guests.
With multiple trips to and from the kitchen over Christmas, many of our customers who have had oak flooring installed in their kitchen tell us that one of the main reasons they had oak flooring installed in the kitchen before any other room in the house was that they realised how much time they and their guests were spending socialising in the kitchen, preparing food and they wanted a warm and welcoming environment that made people want to stay.
Of course, the ease of cleaning up after spillages and a hard wearing floor that can handle a lot of use were popular reasons as well!
If you are thinking of having oak flooring installed in your kitchen, there are so many different options available across both our solid oak flooring and engineered oak flooring range that you are sure to be able to find the right oak flooring for you and your home.
If you are looking to sell your house, you are quite probably considering investing in some home improvements that will increase the desirability of your house on the market; with the kitchen and bathroom said to be the two key rooms affecting a potential buyer’s decision to put an offer in or not, making improvements to your kitchen by installing oak flooring is a consideration for many sellers.
Whatever your reason for having oak flooring installed, be sure to look at all of the available finishes to decide which look is the one for you. We offer free samples so that you are able to see a sample of our oak flooring, to touch it and to place it in the room that the floor will be installed in. This allows you to see how the oak flooring blends in with the existing décor in the room and how the light will hit the flooring at different times of the day.
If you are looking for a more modern, cosmopolitan feel for your kitchen, our lacquered finish engineered oak flooring is a great choice. The lacquered finish oak flooring is particularly popular in rooms that do not receive a lot of natural light as it reflects the light very well and gives a warming glow to a room.
By having the choice of engineered oak flooring or solid oak flooring for your kitchen, you can decide which floor type is best for you. If you’re not sure about the differences, have a look at our handy guides and of course, we are always happy to answer any questions that you may have either in person in our showroom, over the phone or via email.
Whichever oak floor you decide is the best for your kitchen, you can be certain that when buying from Oak Floors Online, you are receiving only the very highest quality of oak flooring, that is responsibly sourced and that you have all the resources available to you to help you maintain your oak floor so that it stays looking as good as the day it was installed for years of kitchen trips to come!
