What is the best type of floor for kitchen with pool outside?
June 30, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We're remodeling inside kitchen. It will have maple cabinets, quartz Cambria Berkley color (light tans) and we can't decide on flooring. We have a pool and we often come in house with wet feet, dripping suits. What's best? Wood or tile floor?

We have used wood in many kitchens, and it holds us quite well. Of course, if damage occurs, it can always be re-finished. The benefits are as follows: wood provides warmth to the kitchen, ties in with adjoining spaces, and it is easy on your back. However, if you want something more bullet-proof, go with a porcelain tile. It will be tougher on your back!

Oops, I meant to say "holds up quite well...."
