Flooring and Carpeting/kitchen hardwood floors


Hello Chris,
what do you think of this new (at least where I live) trend of putting hardwood flooring in kitchen?
We are renovating our house and we have an open concept living room and kitchen-dining area. We have decided to go with acacia hardwood in the living and dining section but we are not sure if we should install it in the kitchen section. I am a little worried for the potential water damage but, as a salesperson told me, we don't really expect floods in kitchen. These guys are trying to sell me their products so I'd thought I'd ask an expert instead to have a more neutral idea.
Also, do you have any comments about this type of wood before we order the product? We like it a lot and will most likely install in the bedrooms, family room and living-dining area.
We have a humidifier in the house.
thanks a lot!

Katherine ,

Its true and I have installed wood in many kitchens.. they look beautiful , warm and rich.
Water is not an issue as long as it is just a spill, it takes many days of soaking to ruin a nice floor.

I dont see where you mentioned a product or name??
