I am now planning my kitchen reno. I am having a hard time deciding what kind of floor I want. I am wanting to keep the authentic feel to our house. We live in a 20's home with the old narrow oak hardwood throughout the downstairs. It is not in beautiful shape but I know we cannot afford to put in all new hardwood. Do I go with a new wood floor in the kitchen? I am not keen on ceramic tile since it is so hard and seems cold. (Our kitchen tends to be cold) We have cushioned floor now, but it seems to be passe. On Sarah 101 she used marmoleum. I was not keen on the design. Does anyone have opinions or experience with it? I welcome your thoughts.
