We have Pergo in the kitchen and dining room. The rest of the house is hardwood, except for the bathrooms, which are ceramic tile. I like the hardwood better than the Pergo, but it's not today's prefinished hardwood; it's 50 yo hardwood that's original to the house and was refinished last year. It has a lot of character and holds up great.

We have maple hardwood in our kitchen and nook. Carpet in our formal dinning room. I love having hardwoods! They are so warm and inviting. I sweep once a day and lightly mop once every 2 weeks.

Whew! Thats more responses than I expected! I think we will go with the wood. When we first came to look at the house, almost 2 years ago, my first thought was ooh wood floors would look beautiful in here! And I've been waiting 2 years, so wood it is! Thanks!!

We have ceramic right now, but when we replace the kitchen, hopefully next year, we are putting hardwood down.

we have hardwood in our dining room and black/white vinyl tiles in our kitchen. however, when we do our big kitchen remodel, we are looking at slate (or slate looking ceramic tiles) with radiant floor heating underneath, or cork.

i'd actually LOVE to put in hardwood floors in the kitchen, but we have the original hardwood flooring throughout the entire house and would have a REALLY hard time making it match up.....our house is about 73 years old. and i think it looks odd when you have different hardwoods like that. but i think there's absolutely nothing more durable than hardwood....and it would be pretty fabulous in a kitchen!
