Traditionally, hardwood flooring wasn’t recommended for kitchens because of how common spills are. However, flooring technology is always improving and thanks to modern finishes and sealers, hardwoods are a viable kitchen flooring option! While it’s a pricer option than other types of flooring, you can’t beat the look and feel of hardwood.
Cork flooring is a dark horse option that is excellent for those that spend most of their time in the kitchen. The softness of the flooring lends itself to long hours standing. The styling is unique and works well with some modern kitchen options and is relatively easy to clean. It’s worth taking a look if you choose to with a slightly less traditional flooring.
