While solid wood flooring can be a real plus when it comes to selling a house, it may move and curl if used in a kitchen as it is both heat and moisture-sensitive. It can, however, be finished in polyurethane, lacquer or natural linseed oil. These set hard, and seal and protect the wood for many years, making it more durable.
It’s easy to overlook kitchen flooring when you’re busy thinking about what units, appliances and added extras you’re going to have. But the floor of your kitchen is likely to be one of the largest surface areas in the room, so its selection deserves careful thought.
There are lots of variations to choose from: Small, compact fluorescents or LED under-cupboard downlighters are slim enough to be recessed into the bottom of overhead units. Flexible LED strip lighting mounted on the underside of cupboards is another option. Or, ceiling-mounted lights, flush-fitted for a streamlined, modern look, with directional spots and the right beam width to create a focused light are a practical alternative.
Accent lighting might consist of lighting on shelving, in cupboards or in niches. Lights built into the plinth of a central island or a single run of units gives a gentle wash of light across the floor to make the cabinetry look like it’s floating, while a run of LED lights under the rim of an island worktop makes this is an inviting space to be drawn to, especially if there are bar stools here.
