Kitchen Flooring

Mark’s family has owned a floor covering store since 1902, with his grandfather and father establishing B. I. Rosenhaus & Sons in 1947. As experts, you will be advised on the most appropriate flooring to satisfy the look and feel of your kitchen. Popular kitchen flooring choices are wood, vinyl, linoleum and cork.

Wood Floors

Available in several forms – solid, engineered and laminate. All types come in a wide variety of species and stain colors to suit your decorating preference.

  • a) Solid wood is either glued or nailed to a sub floor which, if in poor condition, may need to be prepared before installation
  • b) Engineered wood has a thin layer of real wood attached to plywood saving trees and money. The reduced overall thickness allows it to be an ideal product in rooms where doors cannot be cut down to accommodate a thicker floor, yet there is still enough wood surface to be sanded two or three times.
  • c) Laminate floors are photographs of wood with a protective wear layer adhered to MDF (medium density fibreboard). Installation is a snap in place tongue-and-groove joint without glue or nails laid on top of padding to reduce noise.

Vinyl Tile Floors

A very durable, easy care material with incredible simulations of wood and stone or original patterns not mimicking standard materials.

Sheet linoleum Flooring

Can be either, vinyl or eco-friendly linseed oil based material. Vinyl can be laid loose for an inexpensive floor or glued down. The extremely durable oil based material has a very long wear warrantee. It is the ‘original’ linoleum.

Cork Floors

Is a beautiful, quiet floor that must be installed on a painstakingly smooth and level floor. It can be glued directly to the sub floor or loose with a tongue and groove connection. Its authenticity and variety of patterns along with the ability to be custom colored give it a uniqueness prized by today’s designers.
