Choosing the appliances, countertops, and cabinets for your kitchen is super important. Even though it is often overlooked, the flooring for your kitchen is just as important as the rest of it. The floors or your kitchen can bring all of your beautiful design choices together. For this job, hardwood flooring is a classic choice. The rich beauty of hardwood is timeless, and it stands up well to spills and stains. When properly cared for, the hardwood in your kitchen will last for years. If you would like a new look, simply refinish or stain and your flooring will look like new.
Hardwood flooring refers to flooring that is manufactured from timber.
Resilience: If you treat your hardwood floors right, their beauty will last a lifetime. Be careful! They can be scratched by pet claws and high heels. Be sure to clean up spills right away. To ensure your hardwood flooring stays looking gorgeous as long as possible, consider drawing the curtains during periods of direct sunlight, to prevent fading.
Cleaning: Keeping your hardwood clean is easy! Sweep and dust regularly. Upon occasion, you will need to wipe them with a damp mop or cloth. Just beware of too much moisture.
There are two different types of hardwood flooring that you can choose for your kitchen:
Solid hardwood: These are planks that have been milled from a single piece of wood. It can be sanded and refinished many times over its lifespan, offering a significant amount of design versatility. However, it is highly susceptible to moisture so be careful if your kitchen is in a damp environment.
Engineered hardwood: If you’re trying to be budget-conscious, engineered hardwood is the way to go for your kitchen project. These planks are made by bonding together thinner strips of wood. The resulting flooring tends to stand up to humidity better than solid hardwood and can be installed on top of a concrete subfloor.
