A lot of customers who contact our hardwood floor installation team in Danbury wonder if they should put hardwood flooring into their kitchens. They love the look but are concerned about whether or not wood floors can stand up to the demands of the kitchen environment. Let’s look at some of the pros and cons!
Pros of Hardwood Floors in Your Kitchen
Just like in the rest of your home, hardwood in your kitchen can make the space look warmer and more inviting. Hardwood is relatively easy to clean in case of those accidentally spills in the kitchen, too.
Cons of Hardwood Floors in Your Kitchen
Unfortunately, real hardwood floors are prone to damage in the kitchen. Just like all wood, hardwood floors can expand when exposed to heat and moisture (two things common in the kitchen). Whether or not this is going to be a major issue for you depends, in part, on how you use your kitchen and how much time you spend in there.
