There are so many flooring options to choose from when buying a new home or remodeling. One of the biggest trends in 2019 is ditching the carpet and adding tile flooring. Even more popular right now is wood tile flooring. Wood tile flooring resembles the look of natural hardwood flooring, with all the conveniences of porcelain tiles.
Not only can you use tiles to cover your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room or entryway; porcelain tiles are now being used in virtually your entire home! What’s even better, you can use wood tile flooring on walls as a creative and complementary accent.
Wood tile flooring is moisture resistant, which are two words every homeowner wants to hear. Wood tile flooring resembles the appearance of natural wood, providing the same beautiful and warm aesthetic. Unlike real hardwood, wood tile flooring is made from porcelain, which resists against moisture in the kitchen, bathroom, basement or any other area in your home that may be prone to getting wet.
Natural hardwood floors are very hard to maintain and are easily scratched. Wood tile floors are easily maintained and don’t need a lot of upkeep. Once installed, homeowners won’t have to worry about polishing, sanding or staining. Wood tile flooring is easy to clean. Just grab a mop, bucket or even a spray cleaner and give it a good scrub.
Wood tile flooring is also easy to clean if tough grime is an issue. Homeowners are able to use non-abrasive cleaning brushes for any tough dirt or debris. Sweeping and mopping wood tile flooring regularly will maintain a new floor look for years to come.
While wood tile flooring is cool to the touch due to the makeup of the porcelain, which is a great addition to your home, especially in the summer months. During the cold winter months, radiant heating for your floors is a great idea.
Not only does it create a luxurious feel to your wood tile flooring, but it also keeps your feet feeling nice and toasty during a cold snowstorm or even right when you step out of the shower. Heated wood tile flooring will also help save you money on heating bills, as the heat from the tile will rise and warm the room.
