We have to say, not everyone is excited about redoing their previously laminated or tiled floors for hardwoods. If you’re one of those not-excited folks, we have news for you--kitchen hardwoods are fabulous. Here are some of the reasons why we love kitchen hardwoods.
Why Hardwood Floors in the Kitchen are Amazing
Hardwood floors in the kitchen give your kitchen a warm, inviting glow. You can automatically change the look of your kitchen with the color and width of your hardwood floors. There are so many colors to choose from, hardwood floors can be used in any kitchen decor from modern to farmhouse to industrial.
Also, hardwood floors are exceedingly durable. Kitchens definitely need a durable floor, because they are high traffic, with a high potential of spills, stains and drops. Hardwood floors can retain their look and feel for decades with just a little cleaning. In fact, there are hardwood floors that are over 150 or 200 years old and are still in service. Hardwood floors are exceptionally easy to keep clean with a dust mop. Hardwood floors are warmer and softer than tile, so you won’t need to run across them howling with cold in the winter.
Finally, hardwood floors, once installed, add value to your home. Many people are waking up to the realization that hardwood floors are perfect for homes, especially those homes for people with allergies, children and pets. Hardwood floors instantly spruce up the look of your home, and prospective buyers know this is a house that has been well cared for. If you are into giving your house a warm, inviting look that will welcome anyone in, you need to think about getting hardwood for your kitchen.
