If you intend to lay underfloor heating in your kitchen, be careful what you choose to lay over the top of it. While underfloor heating can be used with most modern flooring – stone and concrete warm up and retain heat well – some wooden floors, particularly extra-wide boards, certain veneers and some types of adhesive, can be heat sensitive.
Will you be using existing plumbing for sinks and appliances or will you require additional pipe work? If you’re planning to include a kitchen island containing a sink or other appliances in your design, you need to ensure that plumbing and electricity supplies are in place before flooring is laid. Work out where appliances, both big and small, are going to be to ensure that you have plug points where you need them.
Ceramic tiles are primarily made from clay and other natural materials. They come in many different shapes, colours and textures. Though less expensive than porcelain, they tend to be manufactured with fewer straight edges and square corners, which means that grout lines need to be thicker. This results in a more grid-like finish.
Ultimately, your layout needn’t affect what unit style you choose. However, it can have an influence. Large family kitchens work well with a large island or farmhouse-style table at their heart, so perhaps a traditional or country look will suit your needs. Alternatively, galley layouts can benefit from modern streamlined designs that will maximise light and space.
