1. Consider wood-look tile

If you have a space in your home that doesn’t mix well with water but would look perfect with hardwood floors, tile can be the perfect substitution!

Wood-look tile is designed to look just like hardwood, and its wood-like plank pieces are easy to install. You get the water-resistance and durability of tile, with the classic look of wood.

Some popular places for wood-look tile are wine cellars and bathrooms, but it can add a pop of class to anywhere in your Winston-Salem home.

2. Detail with tile

Tiles were made to bring the details! Because tiles come in all shapes, sizes, and styles, they make the perfect detailing addition.
