Fishers homeowners choose hardwood more than any other flooring option. This is not surprising given hardwood’s numerous benefits. It is strong and versatile, and it adds timeless warmth to any room. Hardwood does have one major flaw: it tends to warp and buckle when exposed to moisture.
At Floor Coverings International of Carmel, our customers often ask us about alternative flooring options that capture the hardwood aesthetic without having to worry about moisture, and we suggest wood look tile. Here is some information about this excellent hardwood alternative and why Fishers families choose it for their kitchens and bathrooms:
Just Like the Real Thing
Recent advancements in the tile manufacturing process make wood look tile possible. Tiles can be made to emulate any species of hardwood, from white oak to walnut. You can even find hand scraped and plank varieties. Higher quality wood look tile has more “randomness” from tile to tile, leading to a more authentic look.
Strong and Low-Maintenance
Wood look tile combines the look of hardwood with the strength and easy maintenance of ceramic or porcelain tile. This excellent hardwood alternative will last for generations with minimal maintenance. Simply wipe tiles with a damp cloth to remove dirt and debris. Plush, you don’t have to worry about refinishing!
There is reason that tile is the most common flooring option for kitchens and bathrooms. Never worry about humidity or standing water. With wood look tile, you can even have “hardwood” around your bathtub and shower.
At Floor Coverings International of Carmel, we carry thousands of flooring options, including many varieties of wood look tile. With out mobile showroom option, you can view tile samples from the comfort of your living room.
