If you’re in the market for a “cool idea” for home improvement, faux wood tile is a new trend that might catch your eye. And in case you think the word “faux” has been misspelled, let’s make it clear. Fake and faux have a different connotation. Fake is meant to deceive and show dissolution; faux is intended to be a “tribute” or “toast” to something that is beautiful or great; got it?
In case you missed the latest memo faux wood tile has become a “hot” trend in the home decorating and remodeling business when it comes to hardwood tile flooring. This type of tile is ceramic in nature that combines the rich, textured warmth, finish and design of real wood. It also has the flexibility, durability and functionality of tile and actually costs far less that what you would pay for real hardwood flooring.
One of the main reasons that many homeowners are leaning toward faux laminate flooring is its practicality which is why many upscale boutique hotels have made the switch. Hardwood flooring is water-resistant and can be used in areas of your home or business where moisture and water would make real wood totally impractical; you know, places like bathrooms, foyers and, of course, your kitchen.
Any person considering a remodel or upgrade will most times have a budget to be concerned about unless you have “deep pockets.” That said just because tile flooring looks like it would cost “big bucks” doesn’t mean it costs a fortune. Actually the cost per square foot is less than what you would pay for the “real stuff” which is one more reason why it is so popular. We’re talking affordability here, folks.
And if you’re thinking there may not be many available finishes in faux laminate flooring, please don’t concern yourself Mr. and Mrs. Homeowner. You can choose from natural wood tile, to earthy tones that many wannabes would never dream of staining; washed-out whites and battleship grays come to mind.
If you’re a business owner, hardwood tile flooring comes in large-size tiles that can easily fit in your commercial or industrial setting. And don’t shy away from thinking that hardwood flooring is just for certain areas of a home or business; not so! Tile isn’t just for the busiest places in a home anymore: think bathrooms and kitchen floors. Due to its low maintenance and durability, many folks are wrapping the walls of those “busy” places from floor to ceiling. And while you’re at it, why not consider the same approach for your living room and dining room to add a dash of warmth. Hardwood can deliver a look that is timeless, yet contemporary what will never go out of fashion even if you own an older or historical home tile is the answer. Yes, there s no doubt about it. Hardwood can be the ultimate solution.
