Whats Hot In Vinyl Flooring ?

I don’t know about you but spring has such an effect on me? I start getting that itching feeling that I want to change things around the home. This year I have it bad; I have a list as long as my arm of things I want to change. And one thing I have noticed lately in my quest to find the perfect kitchen flooring is how many cool vinyl flooring designs there are on the market.

I must say I am seeing vinyl in a whole new light recently as we have just replaced our bathroom floor tiles with a trendy new vinyl floor. It looks so cool and modern, super easy to keep clean with no grout to scrub, and has most definitely made our bathroom feel so much warmer.

This has got me thinking that maybe it is a great option for our kitchen?  Our kitchen is quite large with black gloss cabinets, and yet the flooring is a parquet wood effect tile. I hated it from the very moment I first saw it, we vowed to change it as soon as we moved in, but 6 years later the floor still remains. I still moan and groan every-time I have to scrub the grout, but have learnt to live with it, if I am honest still hate it as much as I ever did.

In my what seems eternal search for the perfect floor I have come across lots of options, but just cannot decide? I sometimes feel the only option is ripping the kitchen out and starting from scratch, but the fact is, I may not have chosen the kitchen and never would have, but it is a nice modern kitchen. And the cost of achieving exactly what I want is a cost for another year.

Here are my current favourites from Carpetright, all completely different styles and there lies the problem? How on earth have I come up with such a wonderfully diverse list, and how do I choose.

This Mardis Gras floor is just gorgeous and so on trend at the moment, I love the Parisian floor look, and feel with my black gloss units this would look just beautiful and totally brighten up the kitchen giving it a fresh modern look.

The Stripes Vinyl is so cool, this is perfect for an ultra modern look in a kitchen, cool play area or in a chilled out office environment. I know this is a bit of a statement but I can really see this working.

The Barcelona Stone Effect flooring would work well, complimenting the black gloss and giving it a blended feeling yet giving me the opportunity to brighten the whole look with lots of white and gorgeous pastel colours.

I just know that the addition of a vinyl floor will totally transform the whole feel and look of our kitchen, now all we have to do is make a decision and more importantly both agree on a design.
