Can Wood Flooring Be Installed in Kitchens?

Yes!  Wood flooring is beautiful in a kitchen space.  Although wood flooring is specified in many kitchen remodeling projects, some homeowners are apprehensive to put it in their kitchens.  Poor craftsmanship and inferior products can lead to serious problems.  However, when quality wood floors are installed by a seasoned kitchen remodeling contractor, the results are spectacular.

Here are some pitfalls to avoid when your kitchen remodel includes wood floors:

Cheap Flooring

Not all wood flooring is equal.  In fact, many big box stores pass laminate off as “wood”.  The kitchen is not only a high traffic area, but it is prone to spills and changes in temperature.  Using cheap wood flooring in your kitchen remodel could result in extensive cupping and buckling.

Substandard Installation

Substandard installation happens more often than you think. Often times, a homeowner does not realize that the wood floor installation was poor until a problem arises. When remodeling your kitchen, make sure your kitchen remodeling contractors are experienced, qualified, and pay attention to details.  Ask for references.  Read online reviews.  A lot happens in this space, and if the flooring portion of your kitchen remodel is not installed properly, you will be left with a mess.

Poor Quality Finish

If the finish on your wood floors is not suited for high traffic areas, then you could run into problems.  When discussing wood floors with remodeling contractors, make sure they use quality flooring AND finish products.

Houston Remodeling has been one of the areas premier remodeling contractors for more than two decades. Owner and operator, Tim Lassiter, is very particular about the craftsmanship and products he uses in home renovations.  Houston Remodeling proudly partners with Mirage Hardwood Floors to provide our clients with high quality wood flooring products.  Are you considering home renovations in the near future?  If so, give Houston Remodeling a call today.
