Can you define the best wood flooring for kitchen? It will be a very hard question to answer. The selection of wood should complement the current kitchen decoration especially the wall and cabinet color. Both are considered as the major features in a cooking room, which affect the mood and flair. If you can find the best wooden floor, you will be happy and proud because the guests will be impressed with your taste and style.
The cabinet color
The first thing to consider before you select the wooden floor is the cabinet color. If you have a muted white colored cabinet, you are free to finish the wooden floor in any kinds of colors. A white shaker styled cabinet looks impressive with dark wooden floor. It can be finished in black, dark grey, cherry red or even chocolate brown color. A dark tone on the floor will never create gloomy feeling since white cabinet can neutralize the effect.
The glazing or unglazing wooden floor
The wooden floor is finished in two major options. You can select the glazing or unglazing one depending on the personal taste. I suggest you to pick the glazing or glossy one to create a reflective surface inside a small kitchen. If you have a large kitchen, a matte finish or semi gloss finish is the best option. It brings elegant and shining effect in the cooking room. Match it with an oak cabinet.
Formal kitchen decoration
What do you think about formal kitchen decoration? It looks stylish and impressive if you can match a dark colored cabinet with a chocolate brown finished wooden floor. You can install mahogany, birch or maple on the floor for the high quality hardwood materials. If the budget is very limited for this decoration, opt for the laminate wooden floor. It is chic and nice, yet affordable. Refinish the laminate floor regularly to maintain the elegant look on the floor surface. Spread an area rug on the floor. Select it according the room’s decor. A Navajo rug looks great for southwestern kitchen ideas. A geometric rug looks perfect for decorating a modern kitchen design.
