Hardwood flooring is the most popular choice for Northern Virginia kitchens thanks to its warm look and feel. We install floors from Somerset, Bruce, Armstrong, and more. Here are some options that offer great durability:
Oak hardwood floors are a popular choice in kitchens because they last a long time. White oak in particular is resistant to insects and fungi; white and red oak are ultra-resistant to splitting. Oak floors allow for ultimate flexibility in style and finish. It comes in a variety of grades and colors, and can be finished or unfinished. This multitude of options combined with oak’s minimal upkeep make it a great kitchen floor option.
Maple hardwoods are also commonly installed in kitchens thanks to their durability. Maple is non-porous and will not absorb stains but still responds well to finishing. It is naturally scratch- and dent-resistant, making it a great option for those with dogs. If you are concerned that finding a robust floor will leave you with fewer options stylistically, don’t be—maple is a great choice that comes in numerous styles, allowing you to showcase your taste without compromising your floor’s integrity.
Engineered hardwood is increasing in popularity due to its high stability, low price, and eco-friendliness. This flooring is made with a top veneer of the hardwood and supporting layers of plywood or white wood. It is virtually indistinguishable from true hardwood floors, making it a great option for those installing flooring over concrete slabs or those trying to save on flooring. Engineered hardwood will last you a long time so long as it is good quality.

Available in sheets or tile, vinyl offers many of the same benefits and look of hardwood at a lower cost. It is created to look just like hardwood while offering extra comfort and ultimate resistance to wear and tear. This tough yet highly customizable flooring is a great option for those wanting a hardwood look without breaking the bank.
Laminate flooring is often likened to vinyl, despite being 99% wood, due to its affordability. Laminate is available in a variety of grains and wood styles. It is moisture resistant but will not fare well in the event of flooding, due to its “floating floor” system. Laminate floors are said to “float” because they are installed using a click and lock system and are not nailed or glued down. This makes for a simpler installation but means the floors can be easily damaged in the presence of water, like flooding. Laminate flooring is one of the most affordable flooring options, but needs to be replaced roughly every 10 years.

Below is an example of one of our beautiful designs:
“WISA's work on our kitchen remodel and basement upgrade exceeded all expectations. They made significant concessions to come to an agreed upon price, there were no hidden fees, started when we needed them, completed prior to expected completion date and their quality of workmanship and materials were second to none.…”
“This is the second project WISA has completed for me, and once again, they did an absolutely fabulous job. Daoud and Waris were fabulous with their estimate and communications, and Eduardo (the carpenter) made sure everything was perfect. I love my new counter and will call them again for the…”
“WISA stands behind their work, which is high-quality. Waris and Daoud are very communicative and were very helpful in getting work done on time. Some of their rates were a bit higher than other competitors, but for the quality of service and work, it's worth it!”
“WISA Solutions is a top notch contractor. We reached out to numerous contractors for our kitchen, foyer and half bath renovation. WISA was by far the most responsive, detailed and affordable of the three quotes that we received. Working with Waris and Daoud was a breeze. This was our first…”
“Great Job! Excellent work at a fair price. WISA remodeled our two upstairs bathrooms. We received 3 quotes for this job. WISA was a bit lower than the others, but not by a huge amount. What impressed us was their presentation. We had a chance to visit to a similar…”
