Too bad I have horrible stained concrete. I know some of you are saying "But stained concrete is awesome!" and yes, I agree. Just not in my particular case. It's stained an odd shade of reddish brown and it's very uneven and blotchy. Also, I live in a brick home in the 'burbs, not a loft in the city or some modern home, so I think it just looks out of place. I can't WAIT to cover them up with wood floors. Maybe after we recover form the bathroom remodel...But hey this gives me plenty of time to make a well thought out decision on what flooring we want! Always a silver lining!
I would love to experiment with some tile patterns.
I think the wood herringbone pattern is my favorite but it probably costs like a bazillion dollars to install. But a simple wood on the diagonal I think is just as tasteful. Hopefully I can get it within our budget! (and convince my husband!)
