REALLY okay for the kitchen?

Although it looks beautiful, is it REALLy a good idea to put wood floors in the kitchen? I've heard a few negative comments - wears too quickly due to high traffic, water, etc. Is ceramic tile a better idea? Thanks for your feedback.

This would depend on the kind of floor material and how it's going to be finished. Whether you cook a lot, have kids, etc..

I'd don't see why you can't have a wood floor in a kitchen as long as it's properly finished to withstand the spills and falling objects that are common in a kitchen. Also remember that the utmost care will be needed when installing the appliances (especially the fridge) so as to not scratch the floor.

Hardwood floors in kitchen

More and more folks are putting hardwood in the kitchen. Put rugs in high traffic areas such as in front of the kitchen sink. Wipe up spills immediately.

Lots of folks at this message area have wood floors in their kitchens. You be the judge.
