Did You Say Kitchens?

The sweet smell of pies baking in the oven. Homemade soup slowly simmering on the stove. Tantalizing aromas in warm surroundings.  The kitchen is the cornerstone of every home.

Goodwin’s antique heart pine and heart cypress give the kitchen space a warm, inviting glow without compromising contemporary styles. Goodwin’s wood has been specified for many kitchen floors, counters, islands, and dining rooms.  Each blend seamlessly with all styles of cabinets and accents.

We are often asked if antique wood is suitable for kitchens, and the answer is “YES!” In fact, many people who install antique wood in their kitchen say they will never go back to any other type of flooring, period.

We understand the apprehension you may have about installing wood flooring in your kitchen, but cleaning is easy if performed on a regular basis.

Here are some tips for taking care of your heart pine kitchen floor:

  • Clean spills right away
  • Sweep often to rid the floor of stray crumbs
  • Consider a hard finish to preserve the floor from higher traffic. Goodwin’s environmentally-friendly finishes formulated exclusively for resinous reclaimed and River-Recovered® antique wood are perfect for wood floors in your kitchen. Their unique hardness makes flooring suitable for high traffic areas, kids and pets.
