Is hardwood flooring appropriate for use in a kitchen?

Can hardwood flooring be installed over a concrete slab?
Engineered hardwood flooring can be installed over concrete or can be installed as a floating floor. Modern floor glue contains a moisture barrier. A moisture barrier underlayment can be installed under a floating floor.
