When it comes to kitchen renovation ideas, flooring is high on the list of decisions to lock away early.
Floorboards age beautifully, absorb sound, speak to the history of a heritage home and can be finished in any number of ways to complete your interior design aesthetic – be it country, classic or contemporary.
Here are ten of our favourite kitchens that feature floorboards to soak in the details and add to your kitchen reno moodboard.
1. Dark and moody
Against an all-white kitchen these timbers really pop.
2. Tone on tone
Texture and colour of contrasting timbers work together here, rather than matching the floorboards and laminate on the island bench.
3. Classic, simple
Finished in a high gloss these floorboards will stand up to heavy use for years to come in this beachside home.
4. Modern marvel
More texture play with plywood kitchen island, oversized door and panelled timber cabinetry overhead.
5. Let it shine
This island bench is raised on sturdy legs, exposing shiny boards beneath and giving a sweeping sense of space.
6. Pale panels
Neutral colours but plenty of detailing in the cabinetry call for a simple, minimal finish in flooring here.
7. Country charm
Heavy timbers with the patina of age throughout this kitchen are reflected in the colours of this pine flooring.
8. Black is back
Elegant matte black finishes in tiled splashback and kitchen island cabinetry tell the story here. Elegant flooring lies quietly beneath.
9. Light and bright
An all white kitchen bathed in natural light brings nature indoors and calls for a natural finish in flooring.
10. Timber on timber
This clever use of timber in wide floorboards, heavy island bench and overhead cabinetry is punctuated with black linear detailing in the island bench, lighting and tiled splashback to lighten the look.
