One of the rooms that seems to get the most use, and of course the dirtiest floors, is the kitchen. Not only are there spills and splashes from literally every dish being washed and meal being cooked but there is an unlimited amount of traffic at all hours of the day. In recent months Ellegant Home Design at 1002 W. Dundee Road in Arlington Heights, Illinois has noticed that homeowners and contractors are taking a bigger interest than ever in Naturelle vinyl flooring. Check this out and you’ll see why they are looking at it as the perfect flooring for kitchens.
Closely Resembles Hard Wood
While homes around the world have been done in hard wood, there are few in recent years that are built with hard wood in the kitchen or bathrooms. Since the invention of synthetic flooring materials there is no longer a need to use wood on floors that see a lot of water from time to time, and of course the damage that water does to natural materials like wood. Ceramic tiles are a nice alternative but for those going for a more rustic look with a greater amount of natural wood throughout, Naturelle is the perfect solution. It takes a very close inspection to see that it is vinyl and not real wood and it is available in a number of colors and grains so that you really can get fairly close to the hard wood in the rest of the home.
Scratch and Water Resistant
Naturelle is also scratch and water resistant so it is ideal for kitchens. The vinyl has a Micro Ceramic surface which makes this particular vinyl scratch resistant. With fewer scratches less water can infiltrate the flooring and the result is a flooring that will be stain and spot free because mold and bacteria won’t be present to cause those blemishes. Also, Nano Silver technology introduced to Naturelle enables the vinyl to literally self-heal because this particular formulation is a microbial. All in all, it’s a truly remarkable feature for a kitchen floor. How sanitary is that? And, the further advantage to Naturelle is that you only need to use a damp mop to clean it along with a specially formulated pH neutral detergent. Along with the antimicrobial feature of Nano Silver, there is really no need to use chlorine bleach in the water and this makes cleaning a breeze.
Cost Effective Alternative to Pricier Flooring
Since Naturelle looks so much like real hard wood, you might expect it to be expensive but it is actually not much more expensive than vinyl tile flooring. It is easy to install so even the occasional DIYer can resurface the kitchen floor, often in a single day and if you are looking to list your home for sale at some point in the near future, this is one way to offer value to your home without a huge expense behind it. If you are looking for cost effective flooring that is ideally suited to kitchens and bathrooms, Naturelle is the perfect choice.
Ease of Cleaning
As mentioned above, Naturelle vinyl plank flooring is also easy to clean. You only need a damp mop and the special pH neutral detergent and you can clean the floor with relative ease. No more need to scour and scrub, which by the way, isn’t good for your vinyl flooring anyway. The ease at which Naturelle can be cleaned is one of its biggest advantages and perhaps what has homeowners so interested in changing to this particular type of flooring for their kitchens.
In the room that likely sees the most traffic and certainly has the potential to see the greatest amount of spills and splashes, having a floor that is easy to clean is perhaps the biggest perk of all. In fact, it’s worth changing out your flooring for that benefit alone! As one of the prettiest synthetic floorings on the market today and one that doesn’t cost a small fortune, is easy to care for and manufactured with the latest technology, it is no wonder why there is so much interest growing in this particular brand of 21st Century flooring.
