FIVE REASONS WOOD-LOOK TILE IS FAVORED OVER HARDWOOD FLOORING
BEAUTY AND DURABILITY ARE ONLY THE BEGINNING
You can’t beat the welcome that hardwood floors offer after a long, hard day at work. But those shiny planks only last so long. Before you know it, the scratches and water damage have taken their toll and your floors need a costly resurfacing.
Advances in the tile industry have produced a wood-look tile to rival everything you love about wood floors without the problems of hardwood. Daltile’s wood-look lines offer you all the beauty of domestic and exotic hardwoods with the high-performance qualities you’ve come to love in our tile.
Here’s why people favor wood-look flooring over traditional hardwood.
Wood-look flooring is easy to maintain and easy to clean. You don’t have to be careful about your cleaning methods or worry about damaging tile when your dog runs to the door or your child drops the entire pitcher of red punch.
If damage does occur, you can replace a single tile (or multiple tiles) easily without having to rip up a whole section of the floor. You should consider putting down new sealer every 3-5 years to keep moisture from seeping into the tile or the grout.
2. REDUCED COSTS
Technology in the tile industry has produced tile that looks so much like wood you’d have to get down on your hands and knees to see the difference. Little details like grain, knots, and differences in shade are easily replicated on tile. That means that you can get the look of a costly, exotic wood at a much more reasonable tile price.
3. UNLIMITED APPLICATION
Wood-look tile can go just about anywhere, including in the shower and outdoors-where wood just doesn’t cut it. It actually repels liquid, eliminating problems with staining, mold, and warping.
Designing a unique pattern on a wood floor can be expensive and time-consuming. With tile, customization is built in. You can mix-and-match colors, grains, and sizes for your own unique design.
You can create a custom flooring design that’s one of a kind with Daltile’s selection, which offers you wider planks than you can get in wood. Most wood planks are fairly narrow because the wider the plank, the easier it warps.
Nearly 20 million trees are cut down each year. Wood-look flooring can help cut down that staggering number. Tile gives the warmth and welcoming look of wood without destroying a single tree.
The tile materials can last many decades. You’ll want to update your look long before your tile wears out.
Nothing matches the appeal, warmth, and performance of Daltile’s wood-look tile. Create a beautiful floor today with our wood-mimicking selections and find the durable alternative you’ve been looking for.
