The kitchen in our 100+ year old house here in New England is an addition. No basement, just a rock foundation/crawl space that doesn't keep out the cold. While gutting the kitchen we found out the original wood floors were still there. Had them refinished and they just haven't held up to kids and two big dogs. Also, with the rock foundation/crawl space the floor is COLD in the winter. Any suggestions for a flooring that will be a little warmer and also stand up to kids and dogs? Thanks so much!
