Wood-look porcelain tile flooring is becoming a real trend as of late. It seems I can’t walk into my local coffee shop without running into this new fad. In fact, I remember first coming in contact with wood tile flooring and thinking, “this is brilliant!” The benefits of this look-alike flooring are immediately obvious and, in the right applications, it just seems to make sense.
From my vantage point and perch here are a few benefits of wood tile flooring.
The first and most obvious benefit of wood tile flooring is it’s durability. Porcelain floors are scratch resistant, easy to clean and virtually waterproof. This floor can handle the stress of a kitchen, bathroom and laundry closet, not to mention the traffic of a commercial space. This tile just works. You get the durability of a tile and the look of a wood.
Another benefit to this style of flooring is the vast varieties that wood tile flooring comes in. There are a variety of grains, which gives the space the seeming uniqueness of actual wood, but there is also the variety of color.
Because this tile is made from porcelain and not wood there is a vast amount of colors these tiles can come in. This is helpful as home owners and families look to match their flooring with the rest of their home, they’ll find many color options.
In this 21st Century moment wood tile flooring is in. If you’re looking for a way to update and modernize your home, installing this format tile will do this in a hurry. It will update your home’s look and provide a level of rustic elegance.
All the Benefits of Porcelain Tile
The benefits of wood tile flooring overlap with those of standard porcelain tile. Porcelain tile is long-lasting, you have flexibility in installation (since it’s so versatile this tile installs in high traffic and prone to get wet spaces), maintenance is simple, and it’s pet and allergy friendly.
There are of course many options when it comes to flooring. Wood tile flooring may or may not be what’s best for your home. But, with some investigation and the weighing of pros and cons you can soon learn what’s best.
This new wood tile flooring format is a good option. It’s modern, it lasts and it holds up to a whole lot of beating — it’s a tough tile.
