Which flooring would be wrong for the kitchen?
For the kitchen you need a durable floor covering. Even with a careful cook, spilled liquids or falling objects can damage the kitchen floor. Materials that can not withstand these effects include:
- The laminate floor - it is not moisture repellent and can be easily deformed
- The parquet or wooden floor - absorbs any liquid or oil and can not be cleaned with ordinary cleaning products
- The kitchen tiles - such low quality tiles are prone to breakage
Which flooring is best for the kitchen area?
Our tip: Invest in a practical, auspicious material such as granite or high-quality floor tiles. However, if you care about the look of a wooden floor, you can divide your kitchen into two areas: one with durable flooring and one with attractive, low-impact laminate flooring.
If you have decided for floor tiles, we can only recommend the high quality tile models
How does the kitchen look better?
Make sure you have sufficient lighting in the kitchen area. Often, insufficient light results in an uncomfortable sense of space that is not associated with the device. Above all, the worktops, the sink and the stove are to be supplied with extra lighting fixtures so that you can comfortably cook and bake.
Our tip: Increase the quality of light in the kitchen, for example by install a LED strip to save space on your worktop. The installation takes little time and money and provides all the required places with light.

Our tip: If you do not want to change the look of your kitchen, you can select a hood with stylish design and install it in addition. Let us advise you by a specialist. He can tell you how to easily integrate everything you need into your kitchen.

How are the worktops protected preventively?
Regardless of the width and functionality of a worktop, the kitchen back wall tends to be soiled. If possible, plan this area in advance, because a variant for the kitchen back wall should always be available to you. An unprotected wall surface can lead to laborious care.
Our tip: Lay ceramic kitchen tiles, because they can be cleaned in no time. Glass or other modern materials are also well suited with their shiny surfaces. Wooden elements, chipboard or MDF boards are other alternatives, but they require more care and are difficult to maintain.
For the back of the kitchen, an easy-care material would have to be considered
Which furniture is practical for the workspace kitchen?
Do you have a cooking island? Do you see a real benefit in the cooking process? It may seem trendy and desirable at first glance, but this piece of furniture can take up a lot of space in a small kitchen area. In addition to the decorative features, their role in the entire interior is important.
Our tip: Leave the kitchen island to the spacious kitchens, where there is hardly any lack of space. Their main function as food preparation with sink and extra storage space could be replaced by a convenient round table for two people.
