Mixing wood flooring with Stone Tiles
Has anyone done a self-install of this?
I am thinking of a 6" plank flooring (unfinished) laid out in a trellis pattern with 18" travertine tiles in the "holes" of the wood flooring trellis pattern.
I would prefer to use unfinished plank, and have it finished, rather than pre-finished wood flooring, but I'd be willing to re-consider that if there's a clear advantage to engineered.
Other questions would be how to finish tiles (grout?) so that there is room allowed for wood shrinkage/expansion without the floor ending up gappy.
Any thoughts? Other suggestions?
I've googled for websites about this sort of floor layout but have come up empty thus far.
