White kitchen with beautiful hardwood flooring.

Hardwood flooring is by far the most popular type of flooring for kitchens.  Out of 559,869 kitchens we analyzed, 62.63% had hardwood flooring.

The most popular hardwood shade is medium hardwood, which makes up a tad over 47% of all kitchens with hardwood (light and dark being the compared shades).

It makes sense that hardwood is so popular.  These days, finishes make hardwood very durable, stain-resistant and of course, it looks fabulous.  The variety of species and shades you can buy is amazing.

 

Below is our massive gallery of kitchens with hardwood floor of all species and shades as well as kitchens of all styles including modern, traditional, beach, cottage, rustic, midcentury, Mediterranean and more.

Another long galley kitchen with long island. This is an example of where the island doesn't contrast the the rest of the kitchen. It works, but I think it lacks an accent element.

The ornament attention to detail really takes this design to the next level. While I've repeatedly expressed how I like contrasting elements, I'm not so sure I like that dark brown freestanding cabinet on the far side of the room. It results in there being too much going on.

I'm of two minds about this design. I like the glass-faced island cabinets, but would worry about putting my foot through the glass. It's interesting and not something you see too oftne.

This overall space is wonderful with the large sunroom area lighting up the already bright white space. The kitchen embraces the light with white cabinetry offset by dark wood flooring.

It's amazing how the wood tone can dictate one's reaction to a kitchen. This is a muted wood tone which works well although I like a little more pop.


Contemporary kitchen design with long island with a round eating section on one end.

While not a huge, this island is unique with rounded ends, a small second sink (can be very handy) and stove.

Modern kitchen with stainless steel island. This minimalist island is a combination of work space and dining space.

All wood kitchen with natural wood and white island. Notable design element here is the mix of natural wood and white island.


White luxury kitchen with matching island. Notable island feature is the rounded ends and that it’s small yet fits well within the kitchen. An island need not be huge… small islands can be a useful addition to many kitchens.

Long and angled island follows the contour of the kitchen. Island is fairly narrow to fit the narrow kitchen design.

Simple island in wood within white kitchen.

Modern kitchen with dark island cabinet and white granite counter top. This island stands out in good way within the all-white interior.

White kitchen with large square white island and dark stools. The notable feature of this island is the square shape (most islands are rectangular). The dark stools work well with the white kitchen design.

Cream or off-white kitchen with dark brown two-level tiered island.


White kitchen with dark ornate island. Another example of an island turning one end into a cabinet and offering an eat-in counter as well.

Semi-circular kitchen island with eating on the curved side.

Custom kitchen with two islands. Interestingly this kitchen is not as large as most kitchens with two islands.
