Today, wood look tile flooring is quite different in comparison to its former fake self. I mean really, this stuff looks just like real wood !
hardwood vs. tile in kitchen. astylish1 January 29, 2006. ... I am considering the same issue--tile or wood in the kitchen. I received a price on hardwood that was a third the price of the tile--the tile people in my neck of the woods are out of control so I'm leaning towards wood.
Re: Tile Or Hardwood In Kitchen I have never seen a good looking wood floor in a kitchen after 5 years of use. Tile is the way to go, and I like the wood tile products.
So let’s look at the two kitchen flooring heavyweights, ceramic or porcelain tile vs hardwood, either solid wood or engineered. Budget and ROI Tile edges it over hardwood when it comes to budget simply because of the enormous range of tile options available.
Kitchens are full of things that can leak, so if water damage would be devastating to you, then I would go with tile. However, if you think you can survive a water damage incident, then get hardwood if you like it. I had tile in my old house, and I must say that hardwood is much easier to stand on than tile.
Tile is more expensive to rip out (vs. hardwood can easily be refinished and you can change the color without replacing it). So, if you redo your kitchen, you may want to stick to something that is timeless.
If you're in a tile vs wood flooring dilema, maybe you can have the best of both worlds with wood look porcelain. See if you can guess between hardwood vs tile
Difference in durability, lifespan, resistance to wear, properties, installation methods, and cost between porcelain tile and solid wood flooring. Which flooring is better to buy?
Even though hardwood floors are beautiful they can damage easily in high traffic areas like a kitchen, which can turn into an even more costly endeavor for your kitchen remodeling project. Actual wooden floors can scratch, dent, warp, crack, and chip under the stress from traffic, pets, and messes.
Still, hardwood vs tile? I vote wood. My house is about 9 or 10 years old, the flooring looks great. It's a heaviuly used kitchen that has seen years of cub/boy/girl scouts and sports teams in it over the years, now we're into teenage sleepovers with the associated late-night smack fests.
