    Default Advice Please on flooring

    We have a 1936 house, we stripped the living/diningroom floors and restained we are now remodeling the whole kitchen which is attached to a small hallway and connected to the livingroom. Our problem is we know we can't match the livingroom floor so what do we put down that won't look like we were trying to match it but didn't quite make it?

    We thought the vintage octagon tiles but not in the hall we would like one cohesive floor.

    If you are planning on tiling, the joists and flooring need to be checked for deflection to make sure they are adequate to support a tile floor without flexing too much. Use this deflection calculator tool from the John Bridge Tile Forum.

    What surface had you thought of for the hallway? wood? tile?

    That was kind of the question, our hallway and kitchen run into each other and I don't think that the octagon tiles will look good in the hallway but if we put wood there is no way we can match the original wood thats in the livingroom that will be butted right up to the hallway.
