What's On Their Kitchen Floor?

By JulieVR |

Kitchens are for living in. One of the most well-used rooms in any house, and the heart of the home, a kitchen floor can take a beating. My own 100 year old hardwood floor is constantly trampled by kids and dogs and well used by me – a messy cook who writes recipes for a living – and it’s time for something new. To help me decide what to install next, I took a peek into the kitchens of some local food and parenting bloggers, to see what they have, how durable it is, and whether or not they like it.

A peek into the kitchens of food and parenting bloggers

Heather Eigler, writer, blogger and social media-er at Home to Heather has dark stained oak adorning her kitchen floors - she says it's lovely when clean although with two kids, a husband and assorted animals, it's usually not.

A big thanks to The Home Depot for sponsoring this campaign. Click here to see more of the discussion.

    It is totally the truth – these floors take a beating but are worth it! I love seeing the floors of other friends and neighbors!

    We’ll be installing a medium-dark laminate in our kitchen (and throughout the rest of the house). The thing I’m most worried about is that it’s a v-groove floor and I know the crumbs that will collect in the grooves will drive me insane!

    Interesting that so many mentioned hating their tile floors. I’ve heard that before, so I’ll be steering clear!
