Sometimes we can’t have genuine wood floors, no matter how much we want them, and a wood-look alternative is a great option. They are 100% waterproof and allow you to have wood floors in areas that are too wet and humid for genuine wood, such as the bathroom, and of course, they’re more budget-friendly. Today's wood-look floors are super stylish and so realistic sometimes; even flooring experts have difficulty telling them apart from natural wood; they are also durable, low maintenance, and often have easy installation.
Wood-look tile: possible with inkjet technology
You can see grain patterns! These tiles come cut into planks of any size with various shades, including even high variation. Being tile, they are 100% waterproof, durable, and easy to clean. Inkjet technology is like a computer printer; four jets spray colors simultaneously and quickly. The results are intricate patterns that weren’t possible before when the tiles were always hand-painted, slow and inaccurate.
Waterproof flooring: taking the industry by storm
This is engineered vinyl, an even more recent vinyl version and is thicker, more durable, and replaces the original vinyl composite core with a technologically advanced WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite.) The result is vinyl flooring, with all the luxury vinyl styles, but with an even higher moisture protection level; these cores will not peel or ripple no matter how much water it experiences or for how long.
Be sure to check out new waterproof laminate flooring. The waterproof version is constructed so that spills won’t absorb and stain; this makes it ideal for installation in the kitchen, bath, or high moisture area, although it is stylish enough for any room.
