unless you live in Florida (which is one of the few places I have seen do this with every house) Ceramic tile through out is not standard and probably wont fair well on re-sale. Look at similar condo's currently for sale or model homes in your area. What is the look that buyers are wanting. You can also go to the flooring store and as most they will have a "most frequently" bought flooring. My guess is a neutral tile in the kitchen with a med color hardwood in the living areas. Like another agent suggested bamboo is a great solution as well- especially with green features becoming a buyer "hot button". Good Luck!... more
You have received many a good idea but to keep you from losing your mind, ultilize your builder or his people, my husband and I have been building for over 29 yrs in the Germantown, and Collieville areas , when we do a custom I will work with the Buyers to assist them in their selections, driving them to their tile /granite/carpet and lighting ,place of their choice, but with help and support! That will also keep you on schedule, as the weather will slow you down but also if you dont have your selections ready when the builder needs them it will delay you getting to sleep on your on new bed in your own new home !!
Use a decorator/designer for the general concept rather than piecemeal your new home you'll be surprised how much smoother things will go !
