Wood Look Tile Flooring
If you want trendy flooring that is also functional in your home, consider giving wood look tile flooring a chance. Tile is known to be a durable versatile flooring product and comes in realistic wood look options. Wood look tile is available in both ceramic and porcelain tile types. It is designed to replicate the aesthetic appeal of natural wood and is a long lasting alternative to real hardwood flooring. Although the dollar value may be lacking, the visual and aesthetic appeal is not.
Manufacturing and digital printing technology are constantly evolving and have been contributing to the growth in popularity of wood look tile. These tiles can replicate the look of different types of wood species, colors, textures, and tones. Wood look tiles come in plank options, and can even vary in size to create a more realistic visual.
Benefits of Wood Look Tile
Unlike hardwood, wood look tiles do not need to be refinished. Since tile is naturally moisture resistant you will not run into the issue of your tile planks bowing, cupping, or warping due to being exposed to moisture.
Both tile and hardwood floors are durable, but when it comes to hardwood you have to refinish them every so often to keep their luster. Wood look tile is much easier to care for than hardwood, requiring only occasional mopping and sweeping to prevent build up on the surface of the tile and can resist almost all stains and scratches that hardwood cannot.
You can install wood look tile all through your home unlike hardwood. Porcelain tile is durable and resistant to heat and water, so you can install wood look flooring in places like your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, even in the mudroom. Not only can you have a unique style, but now you can have a unified look to your home by extending your wood look tile into multiple spaces.
