Many people love the wood floor - for me, the ultimate would be the wood ceiling complete with the rustic beams and a warm heated tile floor - that is the best of the best - comfort and old fashion style.
What is amazing about these many different kitchen designs is the variety. A wooden ceiling beam doesn't have to shout country or rustic charm. Some wooden beams are elegant with furniture quality wood, some are pure white and simply elegant.
