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
This inviting, transitional kitchen stuns with a marble top island, muted gray cabinets with black hardware and mosaic tile backsplash at the range hood. Two modern pendant lights with linen shades hover above four wicker bar chairs that provide seating for guests in the kitchen. Rich hardwood flooring provides a needed contrast in the all-white space.
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.
