PSF = Price Square Foot not including installation.

Tile

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are a popular choice for kitchens. They can give an older home a very classic look. Or blend the final touches to a new kitchen remodel. Tile is very easy to clean and tough to stain. Many people like coming up with unique and original tile flooring patterns. The variety of options at multiple prices makes tile a common choice. Porcelain is preferred over ceramic to avoid chipping. $3-$8 PSF

Wood

Wood floors many time tie in the rest of a home and give homeowners a upscale look. They can almost instantly increase the value of your home. Use oak, pine, or maple flooring to get the most value out of your floors. The cool thing about wood floors, when they are treated right, is that they can last for a really long time. They’re durable to moisture and not near as cold on the feet as other flooring types. Not to mention wood floors can always be sanded and refinished to look brand new. You must be quick to clean spills, as wood floors are susceptible to staining. $5-$12 PSF

Concrete

Concrete floors used to be only found in basements or underneath other flooring. As the industrial design trend became prevalent, we began to see more designs incorporating the edgy concrete look. They are virtually indestructible to stains and wear and tear, and can always be covered with carpet. A concrete floor can be poured anywhere for between $100 to $1000, depending on the size of the space.

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is one of the most popular options for homeowners’ floors. It comes in a variety of designs that mimic other materials, installation is a breeze, and it’s one of the more affordable options. The issue is, you will be getting what you pay for. Vinyl flooring is one of the least durable options, and many times flooring can dent or curl over time. Compared to most other flooring materials, vinyl flooring doesn’t last nearly as long. $1-$5 PSF

Stone

Using a natural stone can really add a different vibe to your kitchen. They’re also great for underfloor heating. Similar to wood, stone flooring can last a long time when treated right. It is one of the more expensive options for a flooring remodel, but well worth it. Natural stone floors can greatly increase the value of your home. $15-$30 PSF
