What could be more cozy than enjoying a mug of hot cocoa while watching snowflakes fall from the windows of your open concept kitchen? Winter is uniquely beautiful, as freshly fallen snow blankets the lawn and glistening icicles form on the trees in your backyard. And while you’d love to stay forever, all warm and toasty inside, occasionally you’ll have to venture out into the cold.
You bundle up in your winter coat and boots, grab your hat and gloves, and head out the front door. When you finally arrive back at home a few hours later, the same snow that looked so beautiful through the window has been tracked indoors, and is now a slushy, wet mess. There are dirty footprints and puddles dotting the hallway, and instead of feeling happy to be warm and toasty again, you’re worried about the damage all this water is doing to your beautiful hardwood floors.
If this scenario happens all too often, it may be time to consider replacing those hardwood floors with a better option for winter weather. Even if you live in a region that hardly ever sees snow, these flooring choices are also ideal for rainy spring and autumn days, and trips to the beach and pool come summer.
If you adore the look of hardwood floors but hate the maintenance, you don’t have to compromise style for practicality. It’s hard to distinguish Willow Lane Cabinetry’s wood-look tile from the real thing, and while both are beautiful, only once is impervious to water. Wood-look tile is durable and easy to clean, and is the perfect flooring choice for open concept kitchens and high traffic areas.
Ceramic wood-look tile comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Color options include Carolina Timber Gray, Carolina Timber White, Carolina Timber Beige, and Sonoma Driftwood. Or select frost-resistant porcelain wood-look tile for both indoor and outdoor applications. Porcelain options include Wheat, Espresso, Cottage Brown, White Oak, Sand Dune, Barnwood Gray, and Walnut wood-look tile.
In addition to wood-look tile, there are many other porcelain tile options offered at Willow Lane Cabinetry. Many mimic the beauty of natural stone, like our Eden Statuary porcelain tile, and come in a wide range of sizes and colors to compliment your solid wood cabinetry. As we mentioned earlier, porcelain is waterproof and completely frost-resistant, making it an ideal choice year-round, but especially for winter weather
