Kitchen floor suggestions?

Although DH and I are keeping the foreclosed home near the top of our list, we're still looking at some other houses that are in move-in condition. Yesterday we saw one at an open house that we really like, but there are still a few changes that we'd want to make if we were to buy it, one of which is the kitchen floor.


In our little 9x9 condo kitchen we had tile, which although beautiful, needed extra attention to stay clean. This kitchen is 28x12 - a lot more work to maintain!


Right now the sellers have linoleum, which I would want to replace. However, I'm wondering if tile would be a pain. I'd also consider laminate "hardwood," but I'm afraid that 1) With all of the cabinets it would look like wood overload, and 2) I wouldn't be able to match the flooring that's already down on the rest of that level.


Here are pics so you know what I mean:

(I hate the purple carpet in the great room, so that would go - we would probably put a different color carpet down there, so there's no worry about continuing from the kitchen into that room.)


If anyone is interested, here's the rest of the house: Windmill Road house


So seeing what we're working with, what type of flooring would you recommend?

What about laminate that looks like tile? I really don't know much about any of this, but I think we have some in our apt

LOVING the house!!!  I am going to agree with Uhlease.  Would you feel comfortable putting that down?  We put down laminate wood flooring down in our kitchen and it is very simple to clean.  We have wood cabinets and the wood floor, but we got darker cabinets and the lighter wood flooring.  I think there is a picture in the threads somewhere around here.  I'll check to see if I can find it.
