We all know hardwood as probably the most popular choice for home interior flooring. Unfortunately, with its expensive price tag, not all homeowners can benefit the beauty and warmth of this natural hardwood flooring option. Luckily, there are more affordable ways to incorporate such warmth and beauty into the room. Aside from installing laminate wood flooring, you can also consider wood grain tile as your option.
There are some reasons why wood like or wood grain tile is a great choice for you to install. And the ultimate one is how this tile option can also mimic the look and feel of the real hardwood flooring in a fraction of cost.
Depending on the tile material, the wood like tile can also free you from the drawbacks of real natural hardwood, such as chips, scratches, and nicks, especially when you host a party and your guests come wearing high heels.
The wood grain tile can be either ceramic or porcelain. This makes the wood grain tile flooring has a wide possibilities for any budget range. Ceramic wood like tile, for example, can start from only $3 per square foot to $15 per square foot. And do not forget the fact how both tile options are remarkable for being easy to clean. The options also range in term of plank widths, which ensures there is always an option for everyone depending on their personal preferences.
Even so, just like when you install even the real hardwood for interior home flooring, you need to clean and care for the wood grain tile properly as well. Luckily, both ceramic and porcelain are easy to clean, which work can be made even much easier with the availability of a wide range of cleaning tools and products to fit any specific flooring type. You may need to pay attention to the climate where your home is located too. Ceramic tile, for example, can feel cooler in the summer, but it can create a discomfort during winter months, thus requiring you to lay rug or carpet for desired warmth underfoot.
In the end, your decision between real hardwood and wood grain tile, or even wood grain tile vs laminate, is always yours to make. We personally still love the practicality of wood like tile. Besides, it can also create the visual depth the real wood flooring can provide. Even so, there are moments when this tile option cannot completely replace the beauty and warmth of real wood.
