Faux Wood Flooring Ideas for Every Room

Who says you can't put wood flooring everywhere? When you use faux wood flooring, you can add the look of wood to any room of your home. So whether you want to add warmth to your bathroom or give your kitchen a rustic look, chances are that wood-look tile is a great material choice.

Make a Dramatic Difference in the Basement

Most people don't want to put their best flooring in their basement. This is probably where you store items and where your utility controls are. However, if you have a finished basement space that you use to gather large groups of people, you've been missing out on a flooring design opportunity.

By using gorgeous flooring, such as Yacht Club glazed porcelain tiles, you can make your basement space look bold and beautiful. These tiles have the dramatic shading of natural wood and feature patterns that resemble realistic wood grain, and they have the strength and versatility of porcelain. This is a great way to turn the basement into a more defined and stylish space. A light-colored wood floor will also reflect light and brighten up your basement space.
