When you are selecting flooring, you may find yourself deciding between hardwood and tile. A lot of people rule out carpet easily because of things like allergies and spills, but are not sure whether tile or wood is the best choice for them. This decision can be complicated even further by the fact that there are now a lot of tiles that actually look like wood.
As you assess which flooring material is right for you, you need to consider the pros and cons of each. Tile can be harder and more durable, but grout can get dirty and be hard to clean. Hardwood is prone to scratching but it can be refinished and it can be an easy-care floor, depending upon the kind of hardwood you select. Tile, on the other hand, can be better for areas where there might be water because water could damage a wood floor due to warping. Sam’s Flooring can help you to make the choice of hardwood or tile, and can show you a great selection of both different kinds of flooring materials.
