Hardwood flooring may not be the most water-resistant kitchen flooring choice, but it is a popular and beautiful floor covering. The wide-plank hardwood in this kitchen is made with FSC-certified hardwood and protected with an eco-friendly wax-oil finish. Photo courtesy of DuChateau Floors
The kitchen of this charming Jamestown, Rhode Island, cottage was once dim and closed off, with a narrow window. Post-renovation, it's light, bright and open, with integrated appliances, a petite island and crisp white cabinetry that extends to the ceiling for maximum storage. Hardwood flooring adds to the charm.
A baker's dream kitchen, this space is not only stylish, but functional. Quartz countertops and golden teak hardwood flooring gleam while walls painted in Valspar Coastal Jetty give the room a fresh and airy look.
To add contrast to the dark contemporary wood cabinets, beautiful hardwood floors with various shades of brown are used throughout the kitchen. The warmer slats of wood tie in well with the soft yellow walls.
