Floor tile in 1920's kitchen?
November 29, 2012
We want tile in the kitchen and family room rather than hardwood because we want to put in-floor heating and feel tile is a much better medium. However, we're struggling with the idea of doing tile vs. hardwood, because we don't want to mess with the integrity of the period (built in 1929) and there is existing ORIGINAL tile in entryway and sunroom that we don't want conflict with - see pix. The rest of the main level is (or will be) hardwood. Is there a tile style that will be true to the period and NOT conflict with existing tile? I prefer the look of hardwood in the kitchen and family room, but definitely want warm floors.
