Three Aspects of Hardwood Flooring Durability at the Kitchen

Customers often question the durability of hardwood flooring. Being an option that frequently costs more than laminate or WPC, hardwood flooring adds a lot of beauty and personality to any surface, but the durability is a very important aspect, specially in the a area as complicated as the kitchen.

Traffic: Kitchens are high-traffic zones. After a number of years, you will find trails almost resembling “cow paths” across the kitchen floor. No big deal, though. For minor issues such as this, solid hardwood can be lightly sanded or screened down.

Scratches/Dings: Drop that industrial-size can of tomatoes on your solid hardwood? A dent will occur. But again, does this happen often? Runners and throw rugs can help reduce dents and scratches. Or, as the saying goes, it “adds to the natural beauty” of the wood. That’s another way to look at it.

Sun Bleached?: One unfortunate result of using throw rugs on hardwood is sun bleaching outside off the protected areas. If your kitchen receives strong sun and is stained dark, sun-bleaching outside of those protected areas will occur, leaving your floor with a “raccoon eyes” effect.
