Hardwood flooring is a classic flooring style that has recently been dropping in popularity. It does look good and is incredibly stylish, however there is a lot of maintenance that comes along with keeping hardwood looking as good as possible. So what can you do if you want the look of hardwood without the upkeep that comes along with it? Well choose a flooring style that offers a hardwood look a like!

Choosing the right wood flooring

There are a few different flooring types that you could choose from if you’re looking for a wood style flooring. You could choose from laminate, luxury vinyl tiles, Karndean flooring or even wood look tiles. All of these flooring types have now advanced enough to produce styles and designs that are up there with looking and feeling like hardwood.

Many of these flooring types have very little maintenance going alongside of them which make them the perfect choice for a busy household. They’re also incredibly hardwearing compared to hardwood flooring.

Laminate and Kardean flooring all come with hard top layers to ensure that no damage can occur to the flooring. They’re incredibly scratch and water resistant and can be used in most rooms in the home, unlike hardwood flooring.

Another positive that comes with choosing a hardwood look a like is the fact that you have more of a choice over different patterns, colours and designs. With hardwood, you’re slightly restricted to the natural wood tones, where as with other flooring you have more to choose from. You could stick to natural wood tones, but you could branch out. The world is your oyster when it comes to choosing the right flooring for your home.
