End Grain Cobble Block Wood Tile Flooring
Just wondering what people thought about our end grain wood tile flooring idea. So many different ways to lay out. What's your favorite?
I agree with GramdmasHouseDIY, try to bring a few samples and see it in a reality of your home. Light gray is neutral, so it can be very nice with brown.
The kitchen cabinets will be fine if they do not match, however I would look for a driftwood color laminate with grey and taupe. I just assisted a friend with the tile selection for her house and many samples later we found the perfect wood look tile. It is in the grey family, but it doesn’t look too grey. It allows you to have the feel of the grey without the unfortunate clash issue you are mentioning. I also think painting the wooden trim on your stairswould help as well.
Get samples and see how they look in your home. We had a similar situation and decided to replace the carpet on the stairs with new carpet because we did not want to bother with new subflooring in order to put other products on the stairs. Check sub-floor needs before replacing carpet with a different surface. We bought dis continued natural stone tile for the door area at the foot of the staircase and then we installed bamboo flooring in the living room; looked very good together. Carpeting is easier on pets and children than hard surfaces. You will not know what is under the carpet until it is removed (and you could find particle board.) I like you tile floor because it is so neutral and it looks like it is in great condition! Styles change over time and old things come back into fashion. Choose what you want to live with for the long run unless you plan to sell the house in the future.
