Welcome to our gallery featuring bold kitchens with rich wooden floors.
There can be a bit of a tossup when deciding between tiling your floor or putting down sleek hardwood.
While tile may be water resistant, hardwood flooring is easier to clean and upkeep. Even if there is water damage to the hardwood flooring, a small section of the floor can be replaced– not the entire floor.
Tile, on the other hand, will accrue wear and tear, and eventually the entire flooring will need to be replaced.
Hardwood flooring is also generally cheaper. While the wood itself costs more than tile, the labor put into tile is generally more expensive than the hardwood flooring overall.
Hardwood flooring will also make your kitchen appear larger. If you’re struggling with a smaller kitchen, you can make the floor the same wood as the connecting spaces in the house. This will grant the rooms a much fuller look.
If that isn’t enough reason to use wood on your kitchen floor, remember that hardwood flooring is very stylish and in right now!
Take a look through our gallery to see how you can incorporate rich dark wooden floors into your kitchen. Our selection is full of different styles and colors, so no matter your personal preference, we’ve got something here for you!
We hope you love this gallery as much as we do!
