Essential #5: Barefoot-friendly Floors
Tim installed French oak flooring throughout the home. “The wide-plank wood feels so good on bare feet,” he says. “It’s like
having a boardwalk in the house.” A simple wax finish protects the surface from sand and allows subtle imperfections to show
through. Tim left several areas, such as the kitchen and dining room, rug-free to keep the mood low-key and summery and make
cleanup a breeze.
