It is an age-old dilemma for many homeowners whether to choose real solid hardwood flooring or a comparable wood-look alternative. The deciding factors are always very personal, so it’s hard to give specific advice on which would be best for your home.
Instead, we will tell you a little more about the differences between these two flooring types and let you be the judge. Let’s dive in!
Choosing the best wood-look flooring for your New Franken home
Hardwood flooring is available in both solid and engineered formats, each with specific characteristics. Solid wood is durable, offers stunning visuals, and has a lifespan that can last more than 100 years with proper maintenance.
Engineered flooring is an excellent alternative to real wood in that it can be installed in below-grade spaces. It performs well under fluctuating temperature changes, dampness, humidity, and moisture.
Wood-look tile, found in the luxury vinyl flooring line, is a perfect choice for any space. It features a layered construction with a core material that offers 100% waterproof protection as an option.
But these floors also offer the look of real wood in a tile flooring format that’s hard to resist. Choose from tiles of different sizes to create unique spaces, with colors that match any existing décor.
Wood-look flooring options offer faster installation than real wood, and you can walk on them right away. For more answers to your most pressing questions about the differences between these materials, visit us anytime.
