Please send me your email address, so that I can send you a final quote. Is this size the net square footage or are you subtracting cabinetry? I would go with a 3x3 tile pattern, the tiles are reclaimed French Terracotta tiles in 6" square but I also have 4" square reclaimed French Terracotta coming in in 2 weeks - but they are a bit more than the 6" square. The wood is reclaimed American oak with a milled finish on one site and a antique surface (grey, sawmarks) on the other side. We can also use reclaimed beam cut French oak stock - but it is currently not in stock.
Call me if you have any questions. 864.344.0529. I will be glad to instruct your installer and send installation instructions as well.

This would be too thin. You might find an engineered wood floor at 5/8" thickness with a rustic wood grain and use it along side the ceramic tile.

The wood pickets line up perfectly and form a tight space. It is wood on wood - no need for grout here. The reason that it looks like a gap is because of the strong bevel on the pickets. I will upload some other pictures of another project where the wood has no bevel and the fit is even tighter. I prefer to install the pickets, the tiles and grout first and then seal the floor all together.

I charge $16 per sq.ft. for wood and terracotta square footage and the right amount of each material for your area whether it is a 3x3 or 4x4 or larger pattern. For $2 more per sq.ft. on the wood material I will miter and precut the wood so you only have to install it. The wood pickets are solid stock at 1 1/4" or 1 1/2 thickness, milled from reclaimed American oak. Installation, grouting, sealing and waxing can be tricky, but I'll be glad to assist you or your installer all the way through the project. If you are not too far from 29646 I will be glad to provide you an installation price as well. Call me at 864.344.052nine if you have any more questions.

Use construction adhesive to mount the pickets to the wooden subfloor or concrete slab. Nail the pickets through the sides(wooden subfloor only) to temporarily hold the pickets in place until the glue has set up. Cut DITRA membrane in fitting squares and glue to the subfloor with a matching fortified thinset. Then install the tiles. We can custom cut and age the pickets for you so installation is a lot easier. Call us at 864.344.0529 or email us at sales@vintageelements for more installation images and advise. It doesn't matter whether you buy from us or not.

This picture was actually taken without the final coat of our imported French Carnauba wax emulsion. The photographer beat us to the job site and we didn't have a chance to apply the wax. We always sell the authentic finishing product along with our flooring to provide a complete package and be able to offer warranty. The picture shows the terracotta/wood floor sealed with a heavy sealing oil. Once the oil dries we apply the Carnauba wax emulsion. The reclaimed oak (dense) has different surface properties than the reclaimed French terracotta tiles (porous). The oil will create a more homogenous surface and will also prevent the wax from penetrating too deeply and not create a solid layer that will repel moisture, dirt and withstand traffic.
The dried Carnauba wax will provide a rich satin and leathery like finish that is cleaned easily and will repel dirt and moisture. It can be rebuffed as desired or reapplied every two years.

It's always a pleasure to read genuinely thought-out responses from the very people that create such beautiful rooms. Many of these kinds of questions are simply ignored by the designers. Good job, Stefan!

Old terra cotta square bricks or regular shape bricks look great mixed with wood planks. Just make sure to do a band or wood around the room to frame the detail. There's nothing more disjointed than the floor pattern going in one direction and the ceiling beams in another. Design tip: Have the floor pattern reflect the ceiling.
