What You Need To Know When Installing Wood Into Your Kitchen

The kitchen truly is the heart of the home, especially these days when our homes are moving increasingly towards open plan living. Adding elements of wood to your kitchen, or indeed any part of your home, is a great way to create a natural, warm, homey feeling. Wood has been used in homes for centuries for its durability, character, availability, and look. It’s a very tactile product that can really add an extra dimension and sense of quality and therefore lends a very inviting element to a room. If you are considering incorporating wood into your kitchen, there are so many clever and stylish ways to do it, and the results will speak for themselves.

Why you need to incorporate wood into your kitchen

More Comfort in your Kitchen

Wooden flooring is a great addition to any space, so why not incorporate it into your kitchen? We spend a lot of time on our feet in the kitchen and this can become tiring, but with wooden floors you will find that they are warmer, ideal for colder seasons, and considerably softer on your feet. Also, wooden floors, unlike tiles, produce less noise providing less noise pollution for busier households. Incorporating wooden panels into your kitchen is a sure set way to add warmth to a space. You can also use some clever tricks of the trade to give the illusion of more space in your kitchen, while gaining a unique style to your kitchen.

Kitchen Wood Maintenance

If you’ve gone for wooden floors in your kitchen then it’s important to keep them well maintained. Try to avoid using water and vinegar, soap-based cleaners, wax, or steam cleaners on your hardwood floors. Vinegar and water actually dull the floor’s finish over time, while soap and wax leave residue. Steam cleaners put heat and excessive water on your floor, which can lead to cupping and long-term damage. Polishing your floor every few months is a great way to clean wood flooring. Polishing renews and refreshes the finish that protects your hardwood floor. With floors that have protective sealant, it is the finish that is getting the most attention when you clean, not the actual wood.
