need help with my kitchen floor
September 8, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have a laminated hardwood floor and thinking of using tile. The rest of the house has original hardwood that came with the house and it is beautiful is it look ok to pick tile the color of the backsplash a very light brown. The kitchen is large and faces the dining room which is also HW. Do I have to be consistent with HW thru the entire house?

You do not need to be consistent with you floor choices. Picking up the backsplash color for the floor would be good. Try to use a large format tile 16x16 or 18x18. At the transition into the dining room you could use a decorative tile strip to define the area. Or maybe lay the tile straight around the perimeter and diagonal in the field. This would define the kitchen area.

I recommend hardwood flooring for your kitchen. It will tie the space together with the rest of the house, and it is much easier on your back than tile.

If you use the same hardwood floor that is in the dining room it will make the space look larger since your eye will not stop at the transition between two different surfaces. If you do not care about making the space look larger then use larger tiles and install them at diagonal this will make your kitchen seem larger.
