After a flooring redesign, feet glide over the honey- or auburn-colored face of engineered wood, or sink into the gentle give of textured or plush carpeting. Designers can rehab bathrooms with the smooth sheen of glass tiles as well as stacked stone veneer, which gives the appearance of real stone but without all the Swiss climbers trying to scale its peak.
