Kitchen flooring

last month
last modified: last month

We are planning to update our kitchen, and so many of the kitchen redesigns and articles show hardwood floors ... I'm a 'messy' cook and dishwasher, and I leave many water and other liquid drips on my current kitchen floor. My husband loves our red oak floors throughout the rest of the main floor, but we have Pergo flooring that is 25 years old in the kitchen and breakfast area. He wants to carry over the same wood--but I'm worried about the upkeep with my drips! I've also heard that white oak is denser and better for kitchens ... which might mean the stain colors wouldn't be exactly the same ... Thoughts or suggestions?
