Help! Wood in the kitchen?
We are closing in on our kitchen. It is an open-plan apartment, and both our contractor and designer are pushing us to run the oil-finished natural cherry wood flooring throughout, including the kitchen. We agree that that would be the most beautiful, but we are paranoid about having wood in the kitchen. Our fear is that over time, the various inevitable cooking, eating, and washing splashes and spills, no matter how diligently you go after them, will stain the semi-porous surface and leave it looking splotchy.
