Do you remember the kitchen from your childhood? Do you remember how it was the heart and soul of the home? Not only did all the meals get created there and many meals get eaten there, but that is where major decisions were made, "heart to heart" conversations were had and where visitors might have been greeted. Today, in my own kitchen, it is not much different. The same important things are happening there. The kitchen is also where homework gets done, art projects get praised, and blogs get written. And very importantly, it is where lifelong lessons about food and nutrition are taught and learned.
If you use a quality polyurethane finish, it can prove to be just as water-resistant as other floor types. These have a beautiful sheen but will require a refinish annually. Polyurethane finishes last a very long time and do not need to be stripped, waxed, or buffed. With regular cleaning and dusting, you should be fine. Just be sure to look out for leaks - and fix the problem immediately if you find any. Something like a burst pipe can cause terrible damage if not discovered, so be on the look out. Equally important is the type of wood that you choose - the kitchen is a high-traffic area and therefore certain species of wood floors work better in the kitchen than others. Cherry, fir, and pine wood are less durable types - ash, maple, or oak stand up better and are more durable, and will serve you well over the course of a lifetime. If you are shopping flooring, let your installer know the room you plan to install it in - they may have some good suggestions about which choice to make.
