Homeowners in the greater Triad area love the look of hardwood flooring. It’s no surprise that it’s one of the most popular materials our customers pick for their home. However, when it comes to areas of your home that are susceptible to changes in humidity or excessive moisture, natural hardwood isn’t going to be your first choice. That’s where wood-look tile comes in.
Here at Floor Coverings International Triad, we’re dedicated to helping our customers find the perfect flooring for their needs. We love the versatility of wood-look tile and think you should know more about it. Read more below!
What is Wood-Look Tile?
Wood-look tile is just as its name suggests: tile that is made to look like wood. We all know wood-look flooring is all the rage these days; however, this flooring material is just as convincing as natural hardwood. Manufacturers today are using the latest technology available to create the look and feel of wood grain in just as many colors as you would find in the natural wood this tile mimics.
Because it’s tile, it’s also going to provide you with all the great benefits that tile comes with:
Strength – Made from durable ceramic or even more resilient porcelain, this tile is strong enough to hold up to years of foot traffic. These tiles are strong enough to be made in larger sizes to more closely imitate the look of wood planks.
Water Resistance – We love tile for its ability to hold up to water, which makes it ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, or anywhere you’d like a little extra protection.
Versatility – Unlike some types of tile that you might not want to install in certain areas of your home, wood-look tile looks great anywhere you’d normally install hardwood, and anywhere you traditionally can’t install it.
Easy Maintenance – We love tile for its ease of maintenance. Clean wood-look tile as you would any other tile, avoiding any hard chemicals that might cause streaking or damage to the tile’s surface.
