Yup! That pretty much sums it up! We are starting to research which type of flooring we want in our kitchen. There are so many options to choose from, however, whichever flooring choice we go with has to meet certain criteria.
1. It has to be durable.
As in I drop things. A lot of things! Things like glasses, which break. Knives, which would scratch certain surfaces. Forks, which again, scratch certain surfaces. And, that just scratches the surface, (argh! argh!).
2. It has to be reasonably priced.
As in, we don't want it to eat up our retirement!
3. It has to hide the dirt.
No, I'm not a slob! But I also don't want a type of flooring that will show every spot, either.
4. I would like it to flow seamlessly through to the livingroom, which is a lighter shade of older style hardwood flooring.
Oh yes, one other thing. I want it to look attractive (i.e. pretty)!
Now, what I'm really tempted to go with, is some type of hardwood. We have been to several open houses, and the trend we seem to be seeing is hardwood in the kitchen. Although, I always thought kitchens and bathroom, with water around, are not the places you would put hardwood. How interesting...
Any opinions or thoughts on this? I would love to hear them!
