So many homeowners believe that, for one reason or another, you can’t put hardwood flooring in a kitchen and that is simply not true! The kitchen is almost always the busiest part of the home. Some people don’t believe hardwood can withstand that much traffic. Here are just a few of the many reasons you should choose hardwood flooring for your kitchen.
Great, Classic Appearance
First of all, the look of hardwood flooring is just classic and homey. It’s a great way to show off your creativity and add some value to your home in the process. Even if you don’t plan to move any time soon, good quality hardwood is a solid investment. Plus if you’d like to change the look of your flooring every couple of years, you can choose different stains and finishes for the wood!
Hardwood Flooring is Built to Last
You can also rest easy knowing that your hardwood floors will last. They are incredibly durable, especially if they score high on the Janka hardness rating scale. Scuff marks are bound to happen, and removing them can be a pain. Even so, hardwood floors can take that sort of punishment on a daily basis. Before you choose which species of solid or hardwood flooring you want to use, you should do your homework. Researching now can save you plenty of trouble later on if something should dent, scratch, or gouge your floorboards!
Cleanup is Easy
Clean up any stains or spills as soon as they happen. This doesn’t need to be tedious if you act quickly enough. Plus, the dirt and debris won’t melt into the surface of the wood, which means it is much easier to clean them up when the time comes.
Warmer Than Tile
Something else to consider is how warm the hardwood looks. While vinyl, tile, and stone look fantastic, they can also come off as cold and unwelcoming.
