Over the last few years, there has been a rise in popularity of wood-look ceramic and porcelain tiles. Providing a great alternative to real hardwood, wood-look tile gives you the style and durability of beautiful hardwood flooring—without the cost! Keep reading to learn more about the many benefits of wood-look flooring.
Wood-look flooring can be made of either porcelain or ceramic tiles and has the appearance of real wood. These tiles are typically manufactured in rectangular planks and—thanks to modern technology—can be designed to have the exact texture and visual appeal of hand-scraped hardwood.
Unlike hardwood flooring, wood-look tile can be used in any room, including rooms that tend to hold moisture. Designed with maximum performance and durability in mind, wood-look tiles are resistant to chips, nicks and scratches, making it an excellent flooring solution for areas in your home with heavy traffic—or for homes with pets. However, to keep your wood-look tile looking and performing great throughout the years, resealing is recommended every three to five years. This resealing ensures that your wood-look tile will continue to resist moisture and remain resistant to heavy traffic.
