There are countless trends in flooring design today. Hardwood, carpet, tile, laminate – what’s the best choice for you? Are you looking for something more aesthetically pleasing to entertain guests and create beautiful photos? Something easy to clean when messes constantly sweep through your home? Something that will last and endure for years to come? There are many options to take into consideration when choosing your floor and different choices are better for different people. Today, we are going to take a look at the benefits of having a wood-look tile in the home.
The most common benefit of having wood-look tile as opposed to regular hardwood is that it is much easier to clean. The tile can withstand large amounts of water, making it easier to mop and won’t show signs of water damage as quickly as hardwood will. If you go with tile in the kitchen, you will be way less stressed when messes happen because they require a mop or rag and water as opposed to specific wood cleaning solutions.
Another advantage of going with tile is that there are plenty more color choices than with classic hardwood. With tile, you can pick from a variety of finishes that will make it easier to match cabinets, counters, or decor. If it is going in your kitchen and you have gray cabinets, you can choose a rustic gray finish to the tile that will create a more uniform look.
Hardwood can scratch quickly if it is not carefully taken care of. If you have little feet running around and shuffling or throwing toys constantly, the tile may be a better option. Porcelain tile is mostly scratch-proof and will stay durable no matter what is thrown its way. This is also a great advantage for the home entertainer who is constantly switching around furniture and decor for gatherings.
Again, different flooring choices may look better, but it is all about finding the perfect fit for you and your home. Thankfully, there are tons of samples available from home stores in all of the different options so you can see what will work best for your needs.
