We replaced the kitchen floors in our last two homes. We used tile for the kitchen in both homes & have been happy. We do like hardwood floors but not in the kitchen. Personal choice

An animal in the house will help your choice.

Ceramic tile - some of the laminated wood products do not like water, a kitchen is subject to spills. However, if anything porcelain or glass hits the floor it is most likely history.

There are some great selections of vinyl planking out there now too, major jump in quality and choices in the last few years. Glue down versions prob best suited for kitchen rather than snap together, for more water protection.

My wife wants tile as it is better for spills
For our more rustic look the rustic hickory would look better I think
The grout on the tile can stain . hard wood can be refinished and look brand new .Decisions Decisions thanks for your input

I would rather stand on hardwood to cook, rather than tile. However hardwood warps if it gets wet, plus it might stain too. Hardwood will show wear "trails", if your kitchen is heavy traffic area (mine connects to the garage and backyard and the kids are constantly in and out). Grout on tile will discolor, but start with a dark color grout and it won't be an issue. Tile is more costly to replace (say 20 years when it is outdated), due to more more labor to remove.
