Under Foot

Elegant flooring options will enhance your next project

Under Foot - MIRROR IMAGE

Reflections, an Italian-made porcelain tile sold locally at Best Tile, captures the smoky look of antique mirrored glass. The rectangular tiles come in two sizes, four colors and a matte or polished finish. Trim pieces and matte mosaics are also available. besttile.com

RUSTIC TOUCH
With its knots, cracks and surfaces distressed by light-wire brushing and random saw marks, DuChateau’s wide-plank Strata Collection conjures rugged wood floors of the past. Made of engineered European oak finished in hard-wax oil, the line comes in six hues; Flint is pictured. duchateau.com

ROCK SOLID
Cali’s durable GeoWood flooring layers a veneer of bamboo atop a waterproof, limestone-composite core. The click-lock planks are easy to install and boast a 10-coat, scratch-resistant, low-VOC finish. Pictured above: wide-plank Antique Iron, a warm, taupe-gray hue with a lightly distressed surface. calibamboo.com

Under Foot - AGAINST THE GRAIN

Weekend Cottage, a line of hardwood flooring from Carlisle Wide Plank Floors’ Casual Collection, is made of brushed white oak with a strong wood grain, a matte finish and tongue-and-groove edges. The eight-inch-wide planks come in a solid (pictured above) or engineered version. wideplankflooring.com
