We will be remodelling our condo this summer. The kitchen is getting a ceramic tile floor. The rest of the main floor will be hardwood. I rejected hardwood for the kitchen because I tend to be a sloppy cook and didn't want to be constantly wiping up spills as I am prepping or cooking or cleaning.
On the other hand, my sister, who lives in her kitchen, has had a hardwood floor in her kitchen for at least 10 years and it is still in perfect condition. However, if she drops any food bit or liquid on her floor, she stops and mops. That's not for me.
