Would you put any type of wood flooring in a beach house? We are updating a shore property that has not really been touched for 30 years, so the entire kitchen/family room area needs work.
We are thinking of putting some type of distressed, matte finish wood floor in, and then having large area rugs in the family room. Realistically, there will be sand tracked in, plus we have a dog. I have tile at home, which I love, but I think that would be too hard on bare feet and possibly slippery too at the beach.
So, I have not had hardwood in any house I have lived in, and when I see it in homes around mine it is usually beautiful, highly-polished wood - not a beach house look.
Anybody have any advice on flooring for me? Thanks!
