The Beauty of Scottsdale Tile and Wood Flooring

Flooring is something that can make or break a house. Although walls can quite easily be repainted to drastically change the look of a room, and ceilings are often overlooked completely (unless you live in the Sistine Chapel or somewhere similar), floors are both highly visible and a major undertaking to modify. There are several types of flooring that are great for indoor use, each of which has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Although many homeowners adore the aesthetic of hardwood flooring, we recognize that it is not suitable for moisture-prone areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. Engineered wood and wood-look tiling can help with that. Our objective at Scottsdale Flooring America is to help you choose the flooring option that not only looks fantastic but also functions well. 

Our Scottsdale, AZ, showroom has a wide variety of tile and one of the most popular is our wood-look tile. It not only looks the part, but it’s also textured in a way that makes it feel nearly genuine. We’ll gladly match the tile to your existing hardwood flooring in other rooms of your house. Simply book an in-home consultation to get started!

Customizing Your Floors

It’s simple to customize hardwood flooring because there are so many options. When you consider the attractive design, durability, and long lifespan of this flooring product, it’s easy to see why so many homes like it. Hardwood is just one of the greatest flooring materials for your home, especially in the long run. 

Hardwood flooring would undoubtedly complement your present décor or interior design strategy. You can easily combine rustic, modern, or original patterns with stain colors ranging from extremely light to ebony black and anything in between. It’s also extremely long-lasting, making it ideal for large, busy homes. 

Hardwood Vs Engineered Wood Flooring

At first, the challenge of selecting the ideal hardwood flooring appears to be a difficult one. With the help of our flooring experts, you’ll be able to locate all of the options you want and need with ease. Furthermore, you will almost certainly never have to shop for flooring again, so it will be well worth the effort. 

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood is one of the most popular flooring options out there, and it’s easy to see why! Some of hardwood’s many benefits include its

  • Durability
  • Wide variety of colors and styles
  • Long lifespan
  • Beautiful, elegant look
  • Ability to be refinished multiple times
  • Ability to match any decor theme

Despite all these benefits, hardwood can be expensive, putting it outside of some homeowners’ budgets. But there is still another option: Engineered wood!

Engineered Wood

Engineered wood flooring is one of the most popular alternatives in this product category. A real wood veneer is sandwiched between layers of plywood on the bottom and a protective wear layer on the top in this material. You may keep the beautiful look of solid wood flooring while also taking advantage of engineered hardwood’s unique features. 

Engineered flooring is popular among homeowners because they do not expand or warp when exposed to humidity or moisture, making them a low-maintenance option. This flooring is adaptable, so it will remain put no matter where you put it. 

Engineered hardwood flooring is a great choice for your house because of its adaptability, durability, attractiveness, and lifespan. You also have the option of refinishing your wood flooring. Your flooring will appear like new after this procedure. To learn more about putting hardwood flooring in your house, contact us now.

What Makes Wood-Look Tile So Popular? 

Flooring has evolved dramatically in recent years. Many homeowners are unaware that ceramic and porcelain wood tiles exist since they are still relatively new trends. Others rapidly discover it is the solution to their house flooring issues. 

Wooden floor tiles have the same advantages as other types of tiles: they repel water well, making them easy to clean and resistant to stains, mold, and mildew. This makes them great for bathrooms, kitchens, and any other space where spills or moisture are likely, and where materials like hardwood are not suitable. 

Wood-look tile, like tile, may be used in every part of the house, not only in bathrooms and kitchens. Our products are long-lasting and can withstand the wear and tear of high-traffic regions. 

More on Hardwood Flooring

Wood floors are attractive and have a homey, comfortable feel. While actually hard, and not comfortable like carpet, wood has a soft look to it and can be easily paired with rugs to create a good mix of durability, comfort, and beauty. Also, since there is a large variety of hardwood trees, there is a wide range of colors and shades available for those who will cover their floor with wood.

Some types of hardwood, such as teak, come from exotic places including India and Burma. Teak wears well, and the summer growth patterns wear differently from the winter patterns, leaving teak with a natural non-skid surface. Since teak also has a natural oil, it will need very little maintenance. Other woods, such as oak or cherry, are sourced domestically and are ideal for homeowners who want to be more conscious of the environment. Also, the lower production and transportation costs mean that these types of wood will be more affordable, while still beautiful.

For those who wish to be even more conscious of using renewable resources, but still wish to have a hardwood floor, bamboo has become popular. Bamboo is not technically a wood, but a grass, and as such grows very fast—hundreds of times faster than a hardwood tree. Bamboo is one of the hardest hardwoods, and looks no different from wood from a tree when made into floorboards, and is an ideal flooring material.

Tile Flooring

Tile is another popular flooring material. Like hardwood, tile is a beautiful, yet durable option. Tile does have some distinct advantages over wood flooring. One is durability. While wood is somewhat susceptible to scratches, scuffs and other damage, tile is virtually indestructible. It is possible to chip tile by dropping extremely large, heavy objects onto it, and tile can occasionally be scratched, but by and large, the tile you install will look the same long after you’ve gotten tired of it and are ready for new flooring.

Generally, the challenge with tile is to pick a fairly neutral color and size since extremes in either of these areas will look dated much sooner than a mellower option. While large, eighteen-inch tiles are currently in style, slightly smaller might be a better choice. Scottsdale tile often matches well with the Southwestern style of many of the area’s homes.
