Epoxy Coatings in the Kitchen – Beautiful and Practical

Many homes have ceramic, hardwood, or linoleum tiles on the kitchen floor. But a recent trend in Reno and other areas – especially during kitchen remodels – is removing those old tiles, exposing the concrete underneath, grinding it smooth, and installing epoxy coatings. Even so, some people hesitate when considering epoxy coatings in the kitchen. So, we’d like to address five common concerns about epoxy floors in the kitchen.

Cold Floors

A common question is about the floor temperature. Aren’t epoxy floors cold on the feet? Well, just like ceramic tile and linoleum floors, their temperature reflects the surrounding environment. Concrete gets cold, and that chill comes through whatever flooring you have. Many people resolve this with radiant flooring, which uses heating elements to warm up the floor. Epoxy coatings work exceedingly well with radiant flooring.

Hard Concrete Underfoot

Some are concerned that a concrete floor will be too hard for their feet and joints, perhaps causing discomfort while standing for extended periods. Conversely, epoxy floors help to alleviate this situation. With Nevada Custom Coatings, you can choose different levels of thickness and hardness for your epoxy floor to help with absorbing impact and vibration. With the proper adjustment, your epoxy floor is better for your feet and joints than plain concrete or tile


Epoxy floors have no seams or joints, so there’s no place for dirt, bacteria, pet hair, old food, or other contaminants to get stuck. There’s no grout to scrub and scour. Typically all they need for cleaning is a mopping. Adding coved flooring extends the protection of epoxy coatings up the walls of your kitchen by as much as a foot, protecting your walls from spills and collisions

Kitchen Floor Safety

Many people believe epoxy floors are very slippery when wet. A high gloss epoxy floor certainly has that characteristic, but that type of floor is for showrooms and professional areas, not for kitchens. Instead, your kitchen needs an epoxy floor that improves safety with a no-slip finish, so that you and your family can keep a safe grip even if there’s an accidental spill. And with coved flooring, you don’t have to worry about a spill causing damage by slipping under the wall.
