What's types of kitchen flooring can withstand steam mopping? Don't want porcelain or ceramic as chip to easily. Also want it to withstand spills especially near sink/dishwasher and have underfloor heating. Rather like engineered wood but not sure if it can cope with the above. Thanks

Thank you, Houzz, for pointing out the advantages of LINO floors in the kitchen! I've had mine for over 15 years. It's been really good, and I love its sustainability eco credentials, too. Is very easy to clean but mine does have some staining and nicks now - I'm a lazy cleaner and I chose a pale colour - so am now considering replacing it with a new lot of slightly darker, perhaps patterned, lino. I wouldn't use anything else. And my two cats love lying on it when the underfloor heating is on..

metalpetal, I don't have a steam mop but I can't imagine lino (ie not vinyl) having any problem at all with that - it's pretty tough and v waterproof. Goes brill with underfloor heating too (see my previous comment a minute ago).
