Hardwood or tile in new home kitchen
Hi everyone, we are building a 3500 sq ft ranch and are debating hard wood floors in the kitchen. We plan on doing radiant floor heating throughout home, we have 2 small boys and entertain often having holidays in the new house. We were are thinking of doing hardwood white oak 5 inch plank throughout the whole home. Now thinking of just having kitchen, mud room and sitting area that are all connected in tile. It could work visually as the dinning and great room you have to walk through an opening to get to these rooms so would look ok. Worried about all the heavy traffic and scratches on wood floors.
Can anyone comment on going from wood to tile? Prefer to do wood but also don't want to be greased out when food and water start getting on the floor as I am a clean freak.
