Wood-look flooring offers form and function

If you like the appearance of wood flooring, it's a good idea to consider both natural and man-made materials. Solid hardwood contrasts engineered hardwood, a plywood base that tolerates moisture, and a hardwood surface layer. Wood-look materials are another option. You can find all types of wood and wood-look floor coverings at Michigan Carpet and Flooring, located in Commerce Charter Twp, MI. Tile, laminate, and vinyl are three popular wood-look materials.

Wood-look tile

Porcelain tile is available in many colors and designs, including those that imitate wood. Most often, wood look porcelain tile is installed in bathrooms and kitchens. Porcelain is a type of ceramic that is composed of kaolin clay. Inherently waterproof porcelain tile is the most durable type of tile flooring on the market. It can be installed outdoors in warm climates.

Laminate wood flooring

Laminate planks and some laminate tiles mimic wood. This synthetic wood-based flooring is available in standard and waterproof styles. Waterproof laminate flooring repels water for the amount of time listed in the manufacturer's specifications. Usually, this timeframe is about one day. Most styles connect for floating floor installation. Glue-down brands are available.

Vinyl flooring

Like laminate, luxury vinyl planks and tiles have four layers: backing, core, design, and wear. This practical and pet-friendly flooring, which repels water for long periods, can be installed anywhere in the home. Choose vinyl plank flooring that has a thick wear layer for maximum durability. Budget-friendly sheet vinyl is another option.
