Flooring is one of the most important aspects of a house. So taking some time and money and investing in it will not only ensure your house looks amazing but also helps increase its value.
There are many ways to update or invest in your flooring. Hardwood flooring alone will give you an immediate rise in the property value and is always high in demand. And stone or tile, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms, retains value exceptionally well.
In Bermuda we are used to that warmth that’s achieved with hard wood floors. However, hardwood comes with it’s own problems. While they are warm and beautiful they can be tough to maintain. The wood gets scratched, wear and tear set in, and over time warping or swelling can occur. Add to that the yearly maintenance of cleaning and sealing and as they say, “the juice might not be worth the squeeze“ when it comes to hardwood.
Surface Trends offers a fantastic solution: wood tiling!
Technology in the tile industry has produced tile that looks so much like wood you’d have to get down on your hands and knees to see the difference. Surface Trends offers an extensive range of selections and colors of tiles that look so much like wood, you’d have to look twice.
Little details like grain, knots, and differences in shade are easily replicated on tile. That means that you can get the look of a costly, exotic wood at a much more reasonable tile price. Combine that with the durability and easy maintenance of porcelain tile and you have a winning combination for a floor that will last long into the future.
There are a lot of positive applications to using wood tiling. The first and foremost is its durability. Like other tile, wood tile is resistant to foot traffic very easy to clean. No warping, no scratches, no resealing and no ripping up the entire floor if damage does occur, you simply have to replace the single tile.
Another aspect of wood tile is it can go just about anywhere, including in the shower and outdoors-where wood just doesn’t cut it. It actually repels liquid, eliminating problems with staining, mold, and warping. And it gives the warmth and welcoming look of wood without destroying a single tree.
In addition to supplying tile, Surface Trends is the local representative of the full Laticrete line-mastics, grouts, underlayments, heating floor mats, waterproofing membranes, and much more. One fantastic solution they offer is sound and crack underlay – perfect for second floor apartments to cut out the noise for downstairs neighbours.
