Faux Wood Flooring Ideas for Every Space

For open concept designs, the same flooring throughout the home is a must. Wood flooring is perfect for open floorplans. It adds elegance, old-world charm, modern trendiness, or just about any other design aesthetic you want to achieve. While wood flooring is a timeless trend that instantly updates any space, water and wood do not mix. That does not mean the beauty of wood floors is impossible for the kitchen, bathroom, outdoors... or really anywhere. Wood look tile is the solution. It's versatile, easy to clean, and comes in a variety of colors and styles that look just as gorgeous as real wood flooring.

Sleep with clean air

Unlike wood sealants and stains, tile has no VOCs, PVCs, formaldehyde or allergens. Tile is made from natural ingredients and is free from toxic chemicals. Wood look tile is inhospitable to dust mites, bacteria, fungi, mold and other irritants. Healthy flooring options are better for everyone, but vital for allergy suffers, young children, the elderly, and anyone with compromised immunities. 


And wood look tile is good for the environment too. With the lowest carbon footprint of any floor, tile is green certified and completely free of any volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
