If I were to renovate again, I honestly have no idea which floors I would choose! You?

Y-House by Tamizo Architects

What’s amazing about this house by Tamizo Architects is that there isn’t a single object inside – except maybe a floor lamp. So you can really appreciate all the beautiful details, like the wide plank floors, kitchen cabinetry with recessed handles, black brick wall, etc. etc.

Lessons Learned: Flooring

We ended up going with walnut floors in my place. When walnut is done right, I think it’s absolutely gorgeous. While I still love the overall look, the issue with my own place is that I didn’t get quite of the finish that I wanted. I’ve been told this will come over time, once our place gets a bit more wear. But I like a very raw, natural look. Our floors have a bit too much sheen. They still have an amazing texture and feel, but I’m ready to have a few house parties to get a bit of scuff going!

If and when I do this again, I think I would probably go with an engineered floor. We finished ours on site. With an engineered floor, you kind of know exactly what you’re going to get. That being said…in our case, engineered was much more expensive, but something I would seriously consider.

The tough part (next time around) would be choosing the style that I’d want. There are so many different types of floors that I would love to have. Here are just a few.
