For many Twin Cities homeowners, the kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where most families start their day with a cup of coffee and a little conversation, and it’s where everyone reconnects after a long day away from home. Over the years, your kitchen will see parties, board games, and beautiful meals where friends and loved ones break bread and share in love and laughter. Whatever flooring solution you choose will serve as a backdrop for all of the memories you share, and it needs to be able to stand up to the test of time.


At Brenner Floors in Minneapolis, we understand that a great kitchen floor should look beautiful even after years of family adventures like muddy shoes and cooking spills. In this post, we’ll talk about why you hardwood makes a surprisingly great option for your Twin Cities kitchen floor.


An Overlooked Kitchen Flooring Solution

There are plenty of reasons you might hesitate before considering hardwood flooring for your kitchen. Hardwood can be impacted by moisture, and there’s a good chance your kitchen will see plenty of spills over the years. A kitchen is also one of the most heavily trafficked areas in your home, and hardwood is certainly one of the more high-maintenance flooring options available. But the benefits of hardwood for a kitchen can end up dramatically outweighing any potential drawbacks.


Here are a few reasons to consider hardwood for your kitchen:


1.      Hardwood is attractive and elegant.

One of the biggest reasons to use hardwood in your kitchen is that it is an incredibly stylish flooring solution. Available in a wide range of natural woods and stains, it adds a soft quality to any space and imbues it with natural elegance. Most concerns about spills can be solved by placing a mat in front of the sink and swiftly cleaning up any spills that occur.


2.      Hardwood requires very little maintenance.

If you keep your floors swept and cleaned regularly, you won’t have to worry about replacing it. Debris and dust are easily swept away, and it can be occasionally cleaned with non-abrasive hardwood cleaner. If scratches do occur over time, our hardwood flooring maintenance team can easily bring it back to its original beauty. 


3.      Hardwood is incredibly inviting.

Wood is a more popular kitchen solution than most homeowners realize, and for good reason. Hardwood is soft underfoot, giving any living space a more comfortable and welcome feel. It also adds warmth to a room where your family will spend much of its time.
