Everyone wants that beautiful hardwood look. Hardwood brings an impressive level of elegance to any space due to its natural and sophisticated look. Having real pieces of wood line your floor is luxurious and can help increase the price of your home.
While everyone would like hardwood in their home, not everyone can afford the high price tag of hardwood. Unfortunately, not everyone works on the same budget so spending a large amount of money on flooring is out of the question. However, there are many other cost-effective ways to get the beautiful look of hardwood in your home without spending a large amount of money.
Here are some great alternatives to hardwood that won’t cost as much but will still give you the fantastic, natural look they provide.
Vinyl is a great way to have that hardwood look in your home. Due to the wide availability of vinyl, you can find a large selection of options that have the hardwood look. The great thing about vinyl is that it is also very durable and takes very little effort to keep it maintained. You can also easily install vinyl on your own.
At Flooring Liquidators, we offer many different vinyl options that mimic the look of hardwood. We offer both loose lay/glue down and vinyl click options. Here are a couple of vinyl options that we offer that perfectly emulate the look of hardwood:
Endure Luxury Vinyl – This beautiful vinyl option has the look of hardwood with many different colour choices that can give the of a darker or lighter stain.
Aquaplus with Husssh 2 Underpad – This environmentally friendly option comes in different colours so you can find the right look for your space and it also has a UV Coating with scratch-resistant paper, and many other great features.
Laminate is a great option for those looking to get the hardwood look without spending the hardwood price. It is made up of a layer of resin-infused paper on top of a wood-chip composite. The resin layer is essentially a photograph of wood and due to its composition, laminate is very durable and scratch-resistant. It is non-porous so it can be installed just about anywhere.
NAF – 15.3 Laminates – This laminate floor comes in smokey shades to rich, warm hues, so there is really something for everyone. This vinyl beautifully replicates wood with its finish.
Centura-Noveau – This is a wide plank laminate flooring with a natural, weathered wood look. This allows you to have the beauty of hardwood while also being scratch and water-resistant.
Tiles have an elegant look and in many different colours and styles. While wood emulation isn’t the prime style you’ll find for tiles, there are still plenty of options that will do just that. Like all of the other options on this list, they are extremely durable, require very little maintenance, are water-resistant, and are cost-effective.
Anatolia Tile – Amaya Wood Collection – This collection comes in an assortment of looks that mimic naturally weathered wood, featured in highly contrasting earth tones.
Anatolia Tile – Vintage Wood Collection – This vintage wood collection coms in ash, carbon, cinnamon, dune, and saddle so you’re sure to find something that will perfectly complement your space.
These are three great options you can use if you’re looking to get that hardwood look in your space but don’t have the money to afford actual hardwood. Each one of these options is beautiful as well as being durable, easy to maintain, water-resistant, and are cost-effective so not only will you save money on the actual purchasing of the flooring but you also will save on not having to maintain or replace them in the future.
