If you have an open floor plan do you have hardwood or tile flooring in your kitchen? Pros and cons? Our kitchen will open into the family room, so I feel a continuous flow of hardwood will look nicer. However I wonder if kitchen spills will be more difficult to clean. Would crumbs and liquids get trapped between the planks? We have a transition from vinyl to carpet in our current house and I hate that little metal strip that separates the two.
