Hardwood vs. Wood look-a-like Tile

A hot new trend lately has been the shift away from natural hardwood floors to ceramic or porcelain tiles that look like hardwood. With so many flooring options out there, you may have never considered fake wood tile. But if you have never considered it you are missing out, it allows you the elegance and beauty of hardwood floors without the maintenance and hassle.

The two biggest pros of wood look tiles is that they are scratch proof and water proof. This means dog lovers all over the world can have stylish hardwood floors throughout their home and not fear for the giant scratches left by their beloved pet. The fact that wood look tiles are waterproof means substantially more uses and places for wood look tiles that you wouldn’t dare try with real hardwood, like the kitchen or bathroom.


Wood look tiles are also completely customizable from colour to size and shape, meaning you can truly create the floor of your dreams. You can try something new like the various variegated patterns available or stick to something more traditional looking.
