Porcelain and Ceramic tile floors are an excellent alternative to hardwood and carpet flooring. Tiles have the cool beauty and surface feel of natural stone, and they're durable, easily maintained and less costly than stone. Tile flooring has a polished, smooth-finished grandeur that resonates color depth and captures the intricate design details of veins and pores seen in natural stones.
People sometimes shy away from tile because they like the look of hardwood. If they think about why they want hardwood, considering tile may be a viable option. Most people want hardwood because of its realistic feel and look. The good news is that tile sold today is perfectly detailed. It is difficult to see any difference between
authentic hardwood and wood like tile.
Wood like tile, made of porcelain or ceramic, has some advantages over hardwood. Chips, nicks, and scratches, that hardwood floor owners dread, are avoided. Because ceramic and porcelain do not warp or crack due to wet environments, a look of hardwood can be added to decks, kitchens, bathrooms, and in other moisture-prone areas. There is more freedom of choice in the lengths and widths of planks, without costing you a great deal more. The maintenance of tile is much simpler than that of hardwood as well.There are some things that buyers can do to ensure their wood like tile experience is a positive one. Carefully and properly match the grout color. A slight discoloration can make it obvious that the flooring is made of tile rather than hardwood. Keep some extra tiles in reserve in case the chosen tile is no longer available, or if a chipped tile needs to be replaced.
Modern technology pushed the boundaries in the production of ceramic and porcelain tile. The feel and look or hardwood is replicated, while retaining the water resistance and durability of tile. Technology advances have increased the choices available.The selection ranges from rustic to modern wood choices.
Putting hardwood in a bathroom or kitchen might be a dream comes true, unless fear of water damage becomes a volatile threat to the ambiance desired. Wood like tile is the perfect alternative that will live up to any expectations.
The reason most often given, by people who choose tile over hardwood, is the cost. Tile is a more cost-effective choice. Another benefit of tile is the choice of color. Nearly any color is available in tile; the choices in color are more limited with wood. Maintaining wood flooring is notoriously difficult. Stress from messes, pets, and traffic causes chips, cracks, warps, dents, and scratches. Pet owners often choose tile instead of hardwood. Scratches to flooring are a non-issue with tile.
