How big of room do u think we need for this wood & tile floor? My dishwasher just leaked and buckled the wood floor. I think sticking to the wood though out is the best answer for our semi open floor plan, but since our wood is no longer available I was hoping to come up with a better resolution to replacing wood in whole unit. Also thinking that I don't ever want to deal with this again so leaning toward tiling. My big problem is kitchen is only 15x15 with cabinets.
Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

P.S. I had only been in my new condo for 2 days b4 the leak. :(

I am sorry to hear about your water accident. Was the wood engineered or solid? The problem with partially using the wood/reclaimed terracotta floor option is the height of our floor. You kitchen floor would be 1/2" higher than your remaining floor. Let me know if that is not a problem. A transition threshold helps to combine different heights.

If your existing floor was not engineered, why not go back with a custom finished engineered floor? Engineered floors don't warp or buckle when exposed to water.
