Has anyone cut out an area of their hardwood floors to put like a runner of porcelain/ceramic tile within the kitchen floors. Was thinking this would help with the any water damage in the high traffic (work zone) of the stove and kitchen sink. If you have pictures I would love to see it. Or if you have any thoughts of how this would look!???

It works long as you hire someone that is conversant with that type of installation....not Juan or Pedro...

You need a joint with some 'give' between the wood and the tile.

Wood expands and contract in size with moisture content.

Tile does no, and has no 'give.'
