Flooring is an investment, and when you make the decision to remodel your kitchen and bathroom, you might find yourself weighing the pros of look versus the cons of practicality. Hardwood floors remain one of the most popular flooring selections for achieving a classy, timeless look. However, when it comes to rooms where water is frequently run or hard, heavy items are more prone to being dropped, hardwoods are less practical.

For those homeowners planning or considering a remodel, the hardwood look isn’t completely out of the question. After all, if you have your heart set on hardwood, it might be difficult to envision your new kitchen with any other floor. For this reason, wood grain tile has recently spiked in popularity. Ceramic or porcelain tile is known for strength and durability in the kitchen or bathroom, but with a wood grain overlay, hardwood-loving homeowners can achieve the look they want without the expense and extra maintenance.

If you’re thinking of remodeling your bathroom or kitchen and can’t picture anything but hardwood, call or visit the friendly staff at Stoneridge Flooring Design at any of our three locations. We carry Marazzi and Mohawk wood grain tile in a variety of looks, including rustic wood, modern wood, and traditional wood. Want ideas for redesign or feedback on your plans? We love talking floors and helping you bring your vision to life just as you pictured it, if not better.
