Should You Have Hardwood Flooring in Your Kitchen?
As the end-of-year holidays approach, you might be spending more time in your kitchen than you have before. Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, you might not think of your home’s kitchen as a special place. Even so, that isn’t always true: you’ve still got to find ways to make it look its best. Perhaps you could do that with some brand new hardwood flooring?
Yes, You Should
It Looks Great: While you have several other options, hardwood flooring will look the best. Over the past few centuries, hardwood has been one of the most well-regarded and frequently-chosen styles of flooring. Kitchens were once massive caverns with multiple pantries, hearths, and cooking stations. Your kitchen now is a smaller-scale version of that ideal. What is your kitchen’s aesthetic? Regardless of how it looks, you’ll be able to find some hardwood that fits.
More Value: High-quality hardwood flooring will help increase your home’s value. This factor is important if you’re considering moving on at the beginning of the new year, or if you are retiring from your current job and will need different accommodations. However, you’ll only reap these benefits if your hardwood flooring has been installed properly.
Water Damage: Much like in the bathroom, you might run the risk of accidental water damage to your beautiful new floors. If any spills or other mishaps involving water, moisture, or other liquids, be sure to mop them up promptly. Your fridge, freezer, dishwasher, and blender might also present sources of water leaks, too, so be mindful of that.
Higher Costs: Although one of best attributes of a hardwood floor is how affordable it is, that might not be true of the more exotic species. You may, in fact, find that installing hardwood flooring in your new kitchen could costlier than you expected, so make sure to budget ahead of time for that potential situation.
