Choosing all of the elements of your kitchen remodel can be difficult. You want to make sure all the materials and colors complement each other while also being durable enough for your living situation. Cabinet Discounters highlights the benefits of choosing hardwood flooring for your Annapolis kitchen.
A Classic Look
The look of hardwood is something that never goes out of style. It’s a classy look that’s especially true in the kitchen. Over the years tile and vinyl have taken over when it comes to kitchen flooring. But nothing feels homier than a hardwood floor. If the kitchen is a place where your family loves to congregate, this look is a great choice.
Particularly in the kitchen, you want a flooring option that’s going to be easy to clean. Whether it’s soapy dishwater dripping on the floor or a morsel of food dropping, the kitchen floor is gonna see a bit of a mess. Luckily, wood floors are one of the easiest to maintain. Simply sweep up or mop anything that falls on it.
When wood floors are sealed and done properly, they hold up well to the regular chaos that happens in the kitchen. If they do get damaged, you don’t have to go through the trouble of replacing the entire floor. They can be repaired and you can save money to focus on other improvements for your home.
It Lasts a Long Time
While laminate has been a popular choice to get a cheaper floor with a similar look to hardwood, it isn’t going to last as long. Hardwood is built to stand the test of time and can last for decades. It resists scratches and damage and can be stained and resurfaced multiple times to retain its integrity. No matter how old it is, there’s always the ability to make it look like a brand new floor.
It Won’t Bleach in the Sun
One of the worst things about laminate or tile flooring is that it can bleach in the sun over time. The longer the exposure that area has to the sun, the more it’s going to bleach. Certain areas will end up being different colors depending on if they’re the areas where the sun comes in the window. Hardwood doesn’t bleach in the sun, so you don’t have to worry. If it does become discolored in an area, you’re able to resurface it without replacing anything.
