Wood Floors in Kitchen?

“Should we install the wood floors in the Kitchen?”  This question can leave Owners awake at night, but rest assured there is no “right” or “wrong” answer.

Hickory Plank Wood Flooring

Often times the homes layout can help you determine the answer.  In the picture above we installed a jobsite finish hickory floor throughout an open floor plan where the Living Room flows through the Breakfast Area and into the Kitchen.  The linear pattern of the wood runs parallel with the long dimension of the space.  This provided an expanse feel with a uniform look throughout.

Our recommendation is to consider the space, use, and Owner’s wants, then make the decision.
