I'm raising my old Queenslander and building underneath, I can't decide what flooring to have! Upstairs which is the current house is stained timber boards from the 40's, I'll sand and re-stain, stairs also timber tread.
I originally wanted polished concrete but pretty expensive, so I've found these amazing tiles in 800x800:
But should I go traditional and put floorboards everywhere? These 2 images are my either/or:
1. Tiles with shaker kitchen and wood accents:
2. timber with shaker kitchen and a navy/black island:
My other consideration is that the first floor flows into the laundry and powder room which the tiles could all go in and not have a join, timber in the living areas would mean tile in powder and laundry which is a join.
So, timber or tiles?
