    Would anyone recommend laminate wood flooring in kitchen?
    (Am going down the off-white kitchen presses route and fear cream tiles on floor will look too clinical)

    Cream or off white kitchen and cream tiles can work very well.

    I wouldnt use laminate,as laminate/wooden floors and any water leaks (washing machine or leaky dishwasher) will not mix and the floor will be in sh!t very soon.

    Go for a tile floor,and add in a border tile too,to break it up and make a nice contrast,its easy to keep,resists water and spillages,when compared to wood/laminate,and its looks the business too,if done right.

    I went down the solid marble tile route with a brown marble border to offset the floor and also to match the cream kitchen and solid wallnut worktops.

    It does work well,well everyone who does be in my kitchen thinks so.:)

    P.S-Little tip here with off white/cream kitchenis to go for a darker work top (brown marble or solid wallnut) and then a slightly lighter coloured tile or glass splashback,as this brings out the kitchen colour and also sets the floor off too.

    It makes the kitchen area seem bigger too.
