The floor may not be the first thing you think of when planning your new kitchen — but that doesn't mean a floor can't make or break a kitchen. Here are kitchens with floors so beautiful, so eye-catching, you may have a hard time looking at anything else.

I'm a little bit obsessed with this kitchen from Carmody Groarke, and not least with the beautiful old hexagon tile floor. It's such a beautiful complement to the minimal, modern style of the rest of the kitchen and, without being too dramatic, its subtle texture steals the show. (Even if you don't own a 250-year-old English manor house, you can get the look with terracotta tile.)

This beautiful old apartment in Lyon, France, has those gorgeous chevron floors that always manage to steal the show. Here they provide a lovely contrast to a sleek, minimal kitchen. See more of the apartment at Vogue.

The pale, pale parquet in this kitchen from Dwell is the perfect counterpoint to the dramatic dark marble of the island.

These beautiful slabs of marble were originally installed in the Museum of Modern Art's sculpture garden. Salvaged after a renovation, they made their way to this Sag Harbor home. See more at Dering Hall.

Painted floors can occasionally feel a bit precious, but this diamond-painted floor spotted on Style Me Pretty is the perfect complement to a modern kitchen.

There's something so beautiful about the texture of cement tile. I just want to rub my cheek on it. Or I would, in this case, if it wasn't on a kitchen floor. I spied this beauty on Popham Design.

This is herringbone, and not chevron (yes, there's a difference!), but whatever you want to call it, it's beautiful. Kitchen by Pelle Designs.

Something about patching this antique tile floor with contrasting hexagons makes it even more appealing. This floor is in a Paris apartment (of course it's in Paris) spotted on Dwell.

Those tiles! An intricate tile floor sets up a beautiful contrast with a minimally-styled kitchen, and this geometric pattern is lively but still feels modern. From Rum Magazine, via Poppytalk.
