Should I choose wood-look tile flooring?

Wood-look tile flooring combines the beauty of wood with the function of tile. Read on to learn more about the benefits of tile and why you should consider it for your next project. 

What, exactly, is wood look tile?

Stone adds elegance and sophistication to a home. Natural stone, though, can be pricey.  Thanks to modern technology like Inkjet, manufacturers can now produce true-to-life ceramic and porcelain tile replicas.

These floors have everything–raised grains, knots, textures, color variations–all the “imperfections” of a Mother Nature creation. 

In our tile flooring showroom, you'll see designs like Acacia Valley by Daltile; American Estates by Marazzi.

The tile is cut into any size plank so that you can get as creative as possible. Installers can make distinctive layouts, including herringbone, chevron, random width, diagonal, etc.

Advantages of tile flooring

  1. Affordability: You can mix and match pieces to create a unique look–and various price points. Plus, it's a lot less expensive than natural stone!
  2. Long-lasting beauty: Tile flooring can last 40 years or more, depending on the quality and the level of care.
  3. Allergy-friendly: Tiles are natural, coming directly from earth-friendly materials. They are chemical and toxin-free. Feel free to contact us to learn more when shopping for tile floors in Wellington, FL.
  4. Easy to clean: There's nowhere for dirt to hide, so you can see it and wipe it off. That also contributes to the product's allergy-friendly characteristics.
  5. Durability: Wood-look tiles can be made from ceramic or porcelain, but the latter is often preferred. Porcelain tile flooring is heavier and more dense, making it ideal for heavily trafficked floors like the kitchen. From a design point of view, many love the large format-fewer seams. It looks more like a wood slab.
