Is a wooden floor suitable for a kitchen?

Yes, a wooden floor can certainly be installed in a kitchen. It is important to take possible moisture and grease stains into account. Regular maintenance can help keep the floor in good condition.

Placing the kitchen first and then the wood floor can help reduce the amount of wood you need, as you don't have to lay a floor where the kitchen cabinets will be. This can save costs. In addition, if there is ever a leak in the kitchen, the wood is less likely to be damaged because it is not under the cabinets. 

However, if you lay the wooden floor first and then the kitchen, this will ensure that the floor continues under the kitchen cabinets. This can be more aesthetically pleasing and it can also be more practical if you decide to change or move the kitchen in the future. This sequence is especially recommended with a kitchen island.
