Throwback Thursday: Wood you guess?

The rains this spring were ridiculous and a lot of our friends had flood basements…flooded basements with carpeting. You’d literally drive around the streets of the North Shore and see home after home with soggy carpeting at the curb! So, thought we could revisit this post about wood-look tiles. LOVE this as an option for a great looking, but practical basement solution.

I love the trend of wood-look tiles that I’m seeing pop of everywhere. Think of all the places you’d love to see wood, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of it…bathrooms and basements specifically.

CesarStone sandstone tiles–love the different sizes and how some look like end cuts.

Here’s how great it can look used in a basement–no worries about a leaky basement ruining your wood floors here.

Definitely a solution to consider for a mud room


Or, check out this stamped concrete! This would also be a great idea for a beach house floor.

Just another great option for flooring to consider if you’re redoing a space.

    I’ve been pinning things like this too! I LOVE that I can create a warm looking floor in a bathroom!
