Kitchen/Great Room flooring that's durable
jmemckinJune 25, 2013
Currently building a home I am looking for a beautiful, strong, durable floor. I have 2 small kids & 3 large dogs! We live in our house & it will have a ton of traffic. The kitchen, foyer, mud room & great room are all open. Any suggestions are appreciated.

A hardwood or tile floor. Carpet is ok but holds a ton of dirt an allergens and likely would have to be replaced in the future.

Agreed with either tiles or hardwood depending on the style of the house.

3 'large' dogs? ...

If polished concrete is an option, and it fits with your aesthetic, I would go with that.
