A damp mop wrung out really well with a mild detergent should do the trick. Or I supposed you could carefully separately clean both surfaces with separate products.

Is the tile a natural stone? - I think that it is imperative to the design of the floor to match the shine of the finished hardwood. How do you get that shine out of the tile?

@House Flipper - most stone tile can be purchased in either a polished or honed finish. The tile in the floor above looks more like honed to me, as it has a subtle sheen.

Honed is the answer, honed finish. That will take the shine off the stone tiles and allow it to match the wood look tiles.

Lovely floor! Could you give me an idea of how much more it costs to do this sort of pattern versus just tile - Could you give me an idea of how much more it costs to do this sort of pattern versus just travertine/tile? Is it much more labor intensive to install? Thank you!

Using the faux wood porcelain tile would solve the expansion / contraction problem...

Hello Medinamom.

Attached are two images of products from our Porcelain wood look tile range. They are priced from just $2.35 a square foot: http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/woodlooktile.html

Back when you wrote this email the prices of wood look tiles were high. They were new to the market and any new products always have a premium. You would be looking at a cost of $4 to $6 square foot. Today as the popularity of the product has exploded in the USA and is used more and more in bathrooms and kitchens (partly due to how technology has advanced so much making it almost distinguishable from real wood, but without the issues of wood) then factory volumes increase.

More factories are built. More production which creates economies of scale. This eventually filters down to the consumer. A company like ours buys direct from the factory in their "quiet season" this allows us to buy at the lowest cost.

Our 6x24" Porcelain (and that is the key ensure you have porcelain - there is no bottom to the price and quality in ceramic) is just $2.35 a square foot the longer length 6x36" is $2.95 a square foot. Here is our Mahogany 6x36" Porcelain wood look tile $2.95 square foot: http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/redwmahog6x36.html

Really like the floor. I was wondering how the wood and tile was joined. - I'm concerned about the wood expanding and contracting. We live in the adirondack mountains where the temperature and humidity fluctuates alot. Also did you have to use a special width and depth board to accomodate the tile size? I really like the design and would love to make it work in our house. Thanks in advance for your reply.

How did you get the height of the tile and wood to be level???

Buckner Construction Inc.
we did a floor similar to this and we installed the wood and then in-between the wood we added a tile underlayment that brought the height up so we could add thin set and then the tile to be flush.
The use of caulk is a very good idea.

You should ask the interior designers: Carolyn Tierney, ASID, CSBA and Diane Susoev, Allied ASID of ECOterior Solutions. They picked out that tile.
