Kitchen flooring dilemma--help!
August 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have white oak hard wood floors in my living room and dining room. My kitchen has entryways into both these rooms, but is not totally open to these rooms. That is, the kitchen is a separate room. I am planning to use tile that looks like wood in the kitchen a shade or two darker than white oak. I'm going for a farmhouse look. Will this look too strange? I'm worried the transition between rooms will look odd. But I don't want to use hard wood because of durability concerns. Has anyone used tile like this while having hard woods in adjoining rooms? Thanks for any advice!
