Wood has been in use for hundreds of years and yet they remain the floor of choice for the very aspiring homeowners. Whether you have a 100-year old floor that you’ve just refinished or newly installed wooden flooring, either one will turn heads.
Wooden flooring brings a sense of nature indoors, and not in the raw sense of the word, but rather in natural beauty.
The recent technology of digital printing on tiles has helped to meet the requirements and demands of the customers. With the help of this innovative technology, the organic authenticity of various hardwood species can be imitated and hence, the replication of natural finishes is being preferred increasingly by customers.
Offering easy maintenance requirements, wood finish tiles is likewise a sustainable option. Additionally, endless application possibilities allow the beauty and grace of wood to be enjoyed in spaces such as the kitchen, entryway, bathroom, etc where traditional wood flooring would never otherwise be found.
The benefits of tiles over hardwood flooring are:
Ease of use: One of the biggest benefits of using tiles in the home is they are easier to clean as compared to hardwood flooring. All you have to do to clean your tiles is to wipe them over with a damp cloth, or use a simple cleaning solution. Tiles are also quite hygienic as they can be easily treated with disinfectants or bleach without affecting the surface.
Versatility: With digital printing, there are virtually limitless options when it comes to the colours, designs and patterns.
Cost Effectiveness: Tiles are cheaper than many other types of hardwood flooring surfaces.
Durability: Tiles can stand up to even the heaviest of foot traffic and they will not show signs of wear. If a tile does become chipped or damaged, all you have to do is to remove the damaged tile and lay another one in its place.
