Tile and Wood Flooring

I had a customer who's bathroom was half carpet- half linoleum flooring. They wanted to remove it all and replace with tile. Here are the results!

I also had a customer who had a guest house that was affected by the recent flood. They had carpet and were tired of it getting ruined anytime it flooded. They didn't want to spend a lot of money either because the house doesn't get used often and it does seem to flood a lot. Our solution was to use a white wood 1x6 and stain it on all sides before putting it down. Once down, we varnished it with a satin finish. This method is more affordable than your typical wood floors and easy to maintain. This method will give your room a more rustic look and that was just what these homeowners were looking for.
