Many homeowners dream about using hardwood in their bathrooms and kitchens, but the fear of water damage prevents it. Instead, they install a tile or vinyl surface and are usually unhappy with the end product. However, through advanced and modern technology, the look and texture of wood is available in durable and water resistant porcelain or ceramic tile. What could be better than gorgeous wood tile flooring that combines the best features of two premium flooring options for your home? At D&R Flooring, we provide the picture-perfect look of natural hardwood with the easy maintenance and durability of tile.
Style, Selections, and Designs
Glazed ceramic and porcelain tiles have the look of wood, are durable, hygienic, and stain-resistant. With shade variations and graphic ranges, the result is a high-end wood design without the challenges of working with real wood. In addition, wood tile flooring designs are easy to replace and repair. Moreover, they come in a variety of styles, including rustic, modern, and traditional designs. Additionally, wood tile flooring selections include tiles requiring minimal grout, or have large, striated planks with a hand-scraped look, all of which give your floor the look of natural wood.
When deciding to go with wood tile floors, do a little homework and research the differences between porcelain and ceramic tiles. For example, porcelain tiles are more durable and impervious to water than ceramic, but ceramic is easier to cut and install. Another consideration to achieving a wood floor look is which grout color to use. With a wide range of grouts, we suggest you choose a color that most closely matches the darkest tones in the tile. Wood tile flooring cost varies by style, selection, and design. For instance, choosing anti-slip tiles for bathrooms and pool decks costs a little more than regular tile.
When considering any investment in your home flooring, we recommend thinking about the features of wood tile flooring in terms of its long lasting appeal and durability. Contact D&R Flooring today at 972-625-4100 and let us design the floor of your dreams.
