At Floor Coverings International Woodbury, we know that homeowners have unique and diverse flooring needs. While many individuals love the timeless beauty of hardwood floors, they are not always the most realistic choice for every family or budget. Hardwood flooring can be expensive and requires a lot of maintenance. Wood tile has all the beauty of hardwood flooring with a lower cost and less maintenance.
About Wood Tile
Wood tile isn’t actually made of natural wood. Wood tile is flooring that looks like wood, which makes it less expensive. Wood look tile comes in both squares and planks that emulate real hardwood floors and are usually made of ceramic or porcelain.
Why Choose Wood Tile?
There are a myriad of reasons to pick wood tile for a new home or renovation. Apart from having gorgeous wood floor tiles that look stunningly similar to real hardwood, there is the benefit of less maintenance. With wood look tile you simply sweep and clean with a damp mop. There’s no need to worry about polishing, buffing, re-sealing, or refinishing! Since it’s scratch-resistant, there is no reason to be concerned about scratching or gouging from pets, shoes, or furniture.
Wood floor tile is a great choice for the bathroom and kitchen because it doesn’t warp or rot like hardwood floors can when they are exposed to too much water. Wood tile also makes a great choice for modern backsplashes in the bathroom or kitchen to protect your walls from mold and other water damage. These tiles are very durable, can withstand everyday wear and tear, and are ideal for high-traffic areas of the home! While tile can be cold underfoot, radiant heating can be installed underneath for warmer mornings or winters.
