So you want wood floors in your home. Well, you have choices. You can get hardwood floors, luxury vinyl plank flooring, and ceramic plank tile floors that look like hardwood flooring. What's the difference? Let's look.

Hardwood flooring

Solid hardwood
is consistent throughout the length of the wood in thickness. The most enjoyable part of hardwood is picking the species, color, and style. The most common species to choose from are oak, maple, hickory, cherry, and walnut. Each species has a unique grain quality to it. This grain quality shapes the overall look of the flooring. If you want a straight grain, then oak and walnut are your best choice. Whorls and burls in the grain come in cherry and maple. The look in your home is outstanding. Wood floors can go in every room and give your home a quality feel.

Wood-look flooring options

Luxury vinyl flooring
comes in two types, vinyl plank flooring, and wood-look tile. Both are made with a waterproof core that stands up to any liquid. The tile and plank flooring looks just like natural wood, as it is made with 3D photography, so it has depth to it. Any nicks or dents will not detract from the look of vinyl flooring. Because of the 3D photography, you can have the option of having any wood, be it maple, cherry, oak, or hickory, and it looks and feels just like hardwood flooring! The texturing is also reproductive.

Ceramic is another option for wood-look tile. This is a ceramic tile in the format of a plank that is waterproof tile for flooring. Please ask us about all your options for wood-look flooring.
