You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers

Posted by

At "Morning Living" we LOVE social media! Both Betsy and I get questions every day on Facebook and Twitter related to the show. I thought I would share some of your home renovation questions to me, with my answers. Perhaps it will help you in your next project.

If you have questions, come join me on Facebook at KelseyOn TheHouse or on Twitter @KelsOnTheHouse.

"Recommendations for a bathroom floor? Don't want tile.."
-Laura

Laura, tile is the way to go if you want ultra water protection. HOWEVER, engineered wood flooring is pretty dang tough, and if it's a bathroom with no shower, than you could absolutely use engineered wood, or even solid wood with no problem. That is what I have in my bathroom! Solid wood white oak, and it has held up great.

"My big decision is.....Quartz or Granite???? I am getting ready to redo my kitchen counters. I'm leaning toward Quartz but wanted your expert opinion."
-Lisa

It kind of depends...if you are looking for a truly unique feature, granite is the way to go. However, quartz holds up much better, and is a more consistent color. If you need durability, I'd go with quartz.

We are getting ready to redo our old pressure treated, deck. What are you feeling for using tigerwood decking??
-Regina

Tigerwood is AWESOME! Pretty pricey, but worth it in my opinion. It holds up like iron, and looks beautiful.
