You can get design inspiration anywhere for your home. In October I visited the new L.A.R.C. Salon which just opened on McKinney in Uptown and they have a flooring that I've never seen before. I would never have guessed that these wood wide plank floors were actually tile but they are.
This is an incredible option for people looking to update old floors for less than the cost of true hardwoods and the maintenance on these is really low, ideal for high traffic areas.
