Will you be using existing plumbing for sinks and appliances or will you require additional pipe work? If you’re planning to include a kitchen island containing a sink or other appliances in your design, you need to ensure that plumbing and electricity supplies are in place before flooring is laid. Work out where appliances, both big and small, are going to be to ensure that you have plug points where you need them.
While solid wood flooring can be a real plus when it comes to selling a house, it may move and curl if used in a kitchen as it is both heat and moisture-sensitive. It can, however, be finished in polyurethane, lacquer or natural linseed oil. These set hard, and seal and protect the wood for many years, making it more durable.
