Hardwood vs. Wood look-a-like Tile

A hot new trend lately has been the shift away from natural hardwood floors to ceramic or porcelain tiles that look like hardwood. With so many flooring options out there, you may have never considered fake wood tile. But if you have never considered it you are missing out, it allows you the elegance and beauty of hardwood floors without the maintenance and hassle.

 

 

The two biggest pros of wood look tiles is that they are scratch proof and water proof. This means dog lovers all over the world can have stylish hardwood floors throughout their home and not fear for the giant scratches left by their beloved pet. The fact that wood look tiles are waterproof means substantially more uses and places for wood look tiles that you wouldn’t dare try with real hardwood, like the kitchen or bathroom.

 

 

 

Wood look tiles are also completely customizable from colour to size and shape, meaning you can truly create the floor of your dreams. You can try something new like the various variegated patterns available or stick to something more traditional looking.

 

 

 

Lastly, the biggest factor in favour of wood look tiles is the price. We are all aware of the price of real hardwood flooring as well as the costs of refinishing and maintenance. Wood look tiles are generally easier on your wallet and more cost effective in the long run. So, if you have a smaller budget but are still looking for the hardwood accent, look no further than the huge variety of wood look tiles available.

 

 

 

All in all, we here at Weston Tile think the wood look tile is a no brainer compared to real hardwood. To learn more about what wood look tiles we have available and what would look best in your home, contact us.
