Hi Sheila, Buyers love hardwood even though we know tile is better in a kitchen. If the kitchen is open to
the dining or family room area, you should use the same floor covering for all. It will make the area seem
larger. That makes hard woods floors an even better choice because they look and feel warmer. My buyers are almost always more attracted to a home with hard wood floors than tile. Tile is a good choice for baths
and laundry areas. I hope that answers your question.
