When it comes to installing hardwood floors, most homeowners tend to this of this flooring type as the ideal for common areas: the living room, dining room, even bedrooms. But as far as kitchens go, many believe that hardwood floors simply are not a practical choice. They think that tile will be easier to clean in case of spills, that hardwood will not complement their appliances and kitchen décor, and that it is not a popular enough option for kitchens in general. But that’s where they’re wrong: hardwood floors have gained popularity in unexpected places, including, yes, the kitchen! Read on to find out more about this latest trend in flooring and why hardwood and kitchens make a better match than you would expect.
While tile has long been the typical choice for kitchens, the advent and sustained popularity of the open-concept design has paved the way for hardwood floors to finally take their place. Open-concept designs allow rooms to flow from one to the other without any set barriers, such as walls or doors, to distinguish between them. Now, the hardwood floor laid down in your living room could easily extend into your dining room, breakfast nook, and yes, even the kitchen, giving the layout of your house a cohesive feeling. One of the concerns people have with their kitchen flooring is how much foot traffic it will be able to put up with; luckily, hardwood is one of the most durable flooring options available, and so you will not need to worry about it even in an environment that goes through as much wear and tear as your kitchen does.
