I agree. If you're looking for stylish, it's up to you. I like tile personally and wouldn't consider a home with wood of any kind. Don't get me wrong, I love wood floors. I've got them in most of the house I have now. But I don't like it in bathrooms, kitchens or laundry rooms. Just my personal taste. We just tiled the kitchen and bathroom floors in this house and I love it. We sealed the grout lines so we wouldn't have to worry about stained grout lines. The only thing I'd have done differently is doing the heated tile floors. Mats can be put in front of the stove and sink that are made of very thick, dense foam that makes standing in one place for a long time much more comfy.

I want to install hardwood in my kitchen, but I'm worried my dog's water bowl will destroy the floors in no time.

I'm wondering how best looking/stylis floor translates into "most efficient floor."

Quality is an important factor when choosing a floor... I think Vinyl is a flooring material that is very well suited to kitchens, as it is waterproof, durable and easy to clean.

It would be nice to see a picture of your kitchen. It is difficult to recommend a flooring material when I don't know your style, colors, kitchen appliance finish, counter and cabinet materials, etc. Do you cook much? Have pets? Please post a picture - that would really help.
