2. Fear of Hardwood Floors in the Kitchen or Bathroom
Once upon a time, people had hardwood floors in their kitchens and bathrooms and the sky did not fall nor did the world end. Tile floors in these rooms, where fear of water damage and hygiene rules, aren’t required by law. In fact, if you have a small space, an open-plan loft, or a one-story house, one of the secrets to creating flow is keeping flooring consistent throughout the space. If you spill water on a hardwood floor, all you have to do is mop it up. Wood isn’t as slippery as tile. Its lifespan is longer than yours, and, unlike aging skin, tired wood can be refinished.
