Hardwood tile AND natural hardwood???
July 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm building a house and would love the look of hardwood in the kitchen- but I feel more comfortable putting tile in the kitchen. (My father is a builder and is also strongly suggesting tile in the kitchen). Any pictures or suggestions on putting hardwood tile (darker color) in the kitchen and having natural hardwood throughout the rest of the house? We are building a colonial- so the kitchen will flow into the dining room- which will be natural hardwood. Suggestions????

I've considered doing that too.

Hi Jackie, the tricky part is all the transition points where tile meets real hardwood. Photos, please ?

Have hardwood in our kitchen and love the look 12 years later just as much. It was one of the only items on our wish list when we had our home built...

The hardwood floors in our kitchen (like the rest of our house) are 90 years old, last refinished 20 years ago. They are holding up beautifully, and we absolutely love them.

I don't care for the look of using a "fake" hardwood next to a real hardwood. If I were going to put tile in the kitchen, I would use something that does not look like hardwood.

Most of our clients put their hand made floors in their kitchen. There shouldn't be any issues if the floors are properly sealed. Here are some some recent photos. Please let me know if you have any questions. joel@eutree.com
