Here at Floor Coverings International West County, MO, we care about providing Chesterfield homeowners with the latest and greatest flooring products. So in addition to offering popular colors, styles, and materials, we also carry innovative new flooring products from the nation’s top manufacturers.
With that in mind, we would like to introduce you to two new flooring styles that are quickly rising in popularity among local homeowners: engineered stone and wood-look tile.
Engineered stone flooring combines the best qualities of limestone and luxury vinyl to produce a unique tile that looks like stone. You can find engineered stone tile in many different styles that mimic looks like granite, marble, porcelain, and more.
Engineered stone tile is made of a limestone core, giving it the durability and strength of stone, and non-porous vinyl. This keeps the tile from feeling too cold and hard, and also makes it easier to clean.
Wood-look tile is porcelain tile that has been designed to mimic hardwood planks. It has a realistic texture and pattern, and the tiles are roughly the size and shape of planks. You can find wood-look tile in a wide range of colors and styles that replicate hickory, oak, walnut, and other wood species.
Because wood-look tile is not in fact made of wood, it can be installed in nearly any area of your home. For example, while we wouldn’t normally recommend hardwood for a bathroom, wood-look tile is perfectly safe and won’t be damaged by the moisture.
