Home is where the kitchen is. Kitchens have become more than a place to cook, they are where we gather with family and friends. In fact, according to the 2020 Houzz Kitchen Trends Survey, some 60% of homeowners spend more than four hours a day in their kitchens. Because we’re spending more and more of our time in the kitchen, homeowners understand the value of investing in not only functionality but also look.

One of the first factors people consider when renovating or making over a kitchen is choosing the right floor. Engineered hardwood flooring is an ideal choice for a timeless look that never goes out of style. For open floor concepts, hardwood also works well in both kitchens and living creating a unified visual appeal.

Engineered wood
in particular is optimal for kitchens. Because it’s made with real wood backed by layers of sturdy plywood, this construction provides dimensional stability, making the flooring less susceptible to movement caused by changes in humidity and temperature (common in kitchens).

More and more engineered hardwood collections are coming with water resistant and waterproof properties. Our Regatta Collection is the latest example. A moisture resistant commercial urethane topcoat protects the real wood wear layer of the Regatta flooring from the wear and tear of everyday life. The real wood wear layer is supported by a waterproof
core. This solid layer boasts an incredible 5,000 lb. psi indentation rating from high heels and heavy furniture. It will stand up to the toughest commercial environments not to mention anything your kids and pets can throw at it.
