Hardwood floors to die for

Posted on Tue, 16 Aug 2011 by KiM

I am STILL on the hunt for hardwood for my house additions/renovations (see this post) and OMG it’s tough when you’re as picky as I am. I was just going through some of my photo stash and came across these photos…dear gawd if this flooring could be mine….

I am getting my home renovated & here's the tile I am using. I think you'll love it. For practical purposes it's a vinyl laminate tile and not real hardwood, but its got a wonderful figure.

Fantastic floors. We're planning on re-doing our floors in hard wood, starting in our living room, extending down the hall to a bedroom and den. Its a big job and I'm bookmarking this post for reference. Thanks!

They are gorgeous! We have um-ed and ah-ed over the floors for our extensions too. I think we maybe, possibly, might have decided on Blackbutt. Maybe…

Totally agree with you! They add so much character to a home!

Never understood why people like carpet and hardwood is just so fantastic. Easy to clean, cool on your feet and great the slide across.

A couple years ago the husband and I bought mixed hardwoods reclaimed from old barns, churches, stores, etc. There's a woman here in ATL who sells them, tongued and grooved. We both took a week off from work and installed a beautiful mixed tapestry of widths (1 and 1/4 inch-6 inches) of dark and light woods, pine, oak, mahogany. It's a pleasure to wake up to every day.

Hi maz, the tile would eventually be laid out all over the house. It's by a local mumbai company around here called Indigo. I don't think it's available internationally.. Though you ll find similar samples, probably better ones where you are. ­čÖé
