Bvflooring
I want to remove my vinyl floor in the kitchen and replace it with a wooden floor. My choices are the 3/4" x 2 .25" standard pre-finished oak flooring or the 3/8" thick floating or glue-down oak flooring. Since this is a kitchen, my thinking is that the thicker wood would be better due to moving the fridge or stove and would last longer. Any opinions?

the big issue here is who itstalls the floor.if you are doing it your self,hands down the best product is a floating floor,its the most user friendly floor made. a thicker floor is of no advantage, since you can't refinish past the nails anyway , 3/4 solid in a prefinished floor will not align as well as a engineered floor
a couple of other things to concider, if you have particle board under your lino (west coast style) you should pull it out. also when you put your stove & refer back put them on a sheet of masonite cut a little smaller than the appliance, keep another sheet handy to add in front when you move the appliance,that way the refer never slides in the floor,
p.s check out a product by bruce hardwood called coastal woodlands ( its a floating floor with a thick wearlayer) good luck
