Create the Look of Wood With Tile
Love the look of hardwood floors, but hate the maintenance? You’re not alone! The good news is, there are options out there now that offer the same look of hardwood that we love, with more durable and functional features. Wood-look tile is all the rage recently for providing advantages of a tile floor like less wear and tear, easy maintenance and people & pet friendly – plus the look and warmth of wood when you choose the right type of stone and have it installed by flooring experts.
Wood tile is incredibly versatile in terms of aesthetics, and can be made to look like just about any style of wood you prefer. Its durability results in little maintenance being required, which means little money needs to be spent on caring for it – or for repairs since it’s so durable. Hardwood floors can be quite pricey depending on the variety of wood you choose, meaning that wood tile is much more affordable option. There are several types of ceramic tile, like porcelain, that are much tougher and scratch resistant than hardwood, not to mention more durable and resistant to stains as well. There’s no sealing, shining or polishing necessary making your life much easier.
Take advantage of these benefits by choosing wood-look tile instead of hardwood for your next flooring project. A few of our favorites to check out are printed porcelain tiles and natural grain-like patterns and woodsy colors of certain stones. Each can be laid out in planks, narrow “hardwood” strips, or in the parquet pattern for different looks and effects.
