Use smaller tiles as a threshold to transition from tile to wood. I love this idea for when we upgrade down the road. I may put small tile on front of my step down from kitchen to living room. Or transition in bathroom from wood to tile
If you have a mounted TV- you MUST do this! No more excuses! How-to: Mounting TV to wall with no cords showing. This is a good idea if you will keep your tv in one place permanently, as aren't renting, etc.
