When shopping for kitchen flooring, you will often be provided with samples, and pictures of different materials that you can choose from. The problem is that these are usually presented out of context, without any decorative or design elements in place to play off of the floor you are looking at. In order to tell how a material is really going to look, you need to be able to see it in an actual room.
