Zillow Advice: Home Improvement - Wood Floors Vs. Tile in Kitchen http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Wood-Floors-Vs-Tile-in-Kitchen/398271/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate They both can work, but personally ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Wood-Floors-Vs-Tile-in-Kitchen/398271/ They both can work, but personally I prefer hardwood.&nbsp; This will help make your space look larger and works especially well with an open floor plan. It seems to be more in style as well.&nbsp; It's easier of your feet, warmer and easier to clean.&nbsp; <br/><br/>Below is a blog post I wrote on the pros and cons for both hardwood and tile.&nbsp; They both have advantages and disadvantages.&nbsp; I hope this is helpful.<br/><br/>[website deleted by Zillow moderator.

Plus&nbsp;tile is easier to clean.&nbsp; Wood warps with moisture and also scratches more easily.<br/><br/>Good luck!
