Re: Hardwood in Kitchen?
That brings to mind my brother and his wife who had a dishwasher accident that flooded their kitchen while they were away.
Their hardwood floor was ruined, but they decided to replace it with new hardwood because they loved the warmth and ease of care.
They also took my advice and installed a pan with a drain under their dishwasher.
Tile does not provide warmth and ease of care. The only time I recommend tile in my projects here in the San Francisco Bay Area is when I am dealing with a home built on a concrete slab. Then it makes sense. Using tile here, on wood frame construction, with our earthquakes, doesn't make sense at all.
