UPDATE 6: Flooring
This St. Paul Kitchen remodel with Powder Room is getting new flooring! A slate grey stone look luxury vinyl tile was selected for this Kitchen design.
After removing three layers of linoleum and a subfloor (which were professionally abated for asbestos) we created a new subfloor and prepped it for installing the luxury vinyl tile.
To create an even transition between the new Kitchen floor and Dining Room floor, we added an additional 1/2 inch subfloor and another layer of birch subfloor. The tiles are installed in an offset brick pattern. After the tiles are set they are grouted like stone or ceramic tile. The vinyl tile will continue from the Kitchen into the new Powder Room just off the French doors.
Advantages to Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring:
- Moisture resistant
- Stands up to high traffic
- Scuff, scratch, and stain resistant
- Extensive variety of colors & patterns
LVT: Versatile, Tough, & Good Looking
Although the wall has been sealed between the Kitchen and back hallway, we continued the luxury vinyl tile in the same pattern and direction in this space to create continuity throughout the home. The LVT is also a great choice for this hall near the side entrance, as it is water resistant and durable.
