Should you abandon the idea of having a wooden floor in your kitchen or go ahead with the idea of installing it and neglect the unwanted consequences when it is exposed to water? The ideal answer is - you can actually install hardwood flooring in your kitchen but you need to take note of few things below:
It is common to have hardwood flooring in most rooms but not in kitchen because of regular wetting on the floor that can possibly affect the durability of the wood material. Most homeowners like this particular type of flooring because it provides warm and pleasant feel that can create additional value to their houses. It seems that bad things would happen to the floor if you insist to install such flooring in your kitchen - for instance, unnecessary cracks and warps on the floor due to the overly exposure to the water.
When flooring your kitchen, it is advisable to always for the hardest wood. Oak and ash are some of the strongest native wood species used in the making of wooden floors. The greatest advantage of using these species is that their beautiful and heavy graining and delicate texture not only make your kitchen floor beautiful but it also helps camouflage the small scratches and dents that are bound to occur over time. There are other stronger wood species available in the market like Jatoba and Santos Mahogany, but the main disadvantage of using them is that they tend to change colour and darken over time. Also, they are very susceptible to humidity fluctuations.
