We just bought a house and we are doing hardwoods bc we have allergies and dogs, and kids. We need to know what's best for bathrooms and throughout out home' kitchen, laundry, beds and bathrooms:)

Tile is a great trend in the bathroom! Current popular options include subway tile or glass tiles in a variety of beautiful, water-inspired colors.

Maybe tile in bathrooms and laundry room. I also like tile in kitchen and entry, but that's just my personal preference. I like wood where water isn't - living, bedrooms, dining room, halls, stairs.

Have you considered the new porcelain tile that looks like wood? It's amazing and is becoming quite readily available and popular. Price is less than wood, more than ceramic. We are using throughout our entire new home, other than bedrooms. Lasts longer than wood. We chose this one.

Hardwood and dogs don't usually mix very well, scratches are almost always an issue even with small dogs. Depending on where you live the porcelain wood look tiles are very nice but unforgivable if you want to change down the road. we put in a laminate that looks and feels like slate, a couple of our friends have now gone that route too. we have had the floor in for 7 yrs. it takes all the abuse 2 large dogs and 4 grandkids in and out the pool can give it and still looks new. Just another thought altogether.
