3 budget friendly flooring options that are durable enough for the kitchen

You need flooring that works hard in a demanding environment as well as looking good.

1 February 2024

It’s often said the kitchen is the most important room in the house: you need flooring that works hard in a demanding environment as well as looking good. Carpet Court’s range of flooring options are ideally suited to do both.

Krono Swiss Giant Beach

A premium European laminate flooring: great looking and tough enough for your highest traffic areas, it’s both scratch and impact resistant, carrying the most robust surface rating available in laminate flooring. The product doesn’t need waxing or polishing, and has also been developed to be colourfast, which will prevent fading in New Zealand’s harsh sunlight. Oversize planks in a range of designs and colours provide a stunning visual finish with a unique character.

Quickstep Bamboo Natural

It’s hard not to fall for this bamboo flooring: it’s harder to ignore its environmental credentials. Quickstep Bamboo is both stunning and long-lasting but because bamboo is so fast growing – it reaches full maturity and hardness in five or six years – it’s also rapidly renewing. The floor panels are coated 10 times, producing a scratch-resistant finish. A stunning, long-lasting floor – and one made with respect for the environment.

Krono Swiss Sync Chrome Zermatt Oak

This premium laminate is produced in Switzerland at the most modern, environmentally friendly production facility of its kind. Available in eight limed oaks in modern colour tones from light to dark, it looks and feels like a precious hardwood floor – unrivalled in depth and precision, it will provide you a spectacularly unique character to your flooring. There’s no need to wax, polish or sand, and it stays looking like the day you laid it – for years and years.
