Even though wood floors and kitchens are not really a great idea, it isn’t as bad choice as in bathrooms where high moisture comes from all directions. Humidity, bathtub overflows, sink spills…All these make solid hardwood rather a bad choice. Kitchens might not have as much moisture as bathrooms, but from the functionality point of view, hardwood flooring is not the best solution. Engineered wood can be alternative here with many other materials (linoleum, ceramic or porcelain tile etc.) being a much better option here. Still, we like to break the rules.
