If you use a quality polyurethane finish, it can prove to be just as water-resistant as other floor types. These have a beautiful sheen but will require a refinish annually. Polyurethane finishes last a very long time and do not need to be stripped, waxed, or buffed. With regular cleaning and dusting, you should be fine. Just be sure to look out for leaks - and fix the problem immediately if you find any. Something like a burst pipe can cause terrible damage if not discovered, so be on the look out. Equally important is the type of wood that you choose - the kitchen is a high-traffic area and therefore certain species of wood floors work better in the kitchen than others. Cherry, fir, and pine wood are less durable types - ash, maple, or oak stand up better and are more durable, and will serve you well over the course of a lifetime. If you are shopping flooring, let your installer know the room you plan to install it in - they may have some good suggestions about which choice to make.
