Good Questions: How Can I Protect Hardwood Floors from Water Damage?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I recently moved to an apartment that has hardwood floors in the kitchen.

Since standing water can damage a wood floor, I was looking for hints for how to protect the area around the sink, where spills and drips most commonly occur.

I am trying to stay away from a regular rug since it's a kitchen and I don't like the idea of having rugs in the kitchen.

Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks! Ana
