Highlands NC Homes, Real Wood or Substitute?
Real wood or a substitute is a choice many people make when renovating Highlands NC homes and choosing flooring. Nothing holds appeal like a beautiful hardwood floor. However, there are myriad options these days, many of which are not wood at all. Vinyl and tile planks are so real looking that often you cannot tell they are not wood unless you bend down and touch them. Whether you are renovating with an eye on selling your Highlands NC home or to update space for yourself, consider your flooring options and weigh the differences.
Benefits of tile over wood
Advancements in the manufacturing process have made huge strides in the ability for porcelain tile to look just like real wood. Tile is such a great choice for flooring because of the fact that it is so easy to clean. Tile is a very low maintenance flooring choice for a Highlands NC home. The only drawback is that tile is very hard. As such, it is very unforgiving and breakables that drop will undoubtedly break.
Wood is an excellent choice. Hardwood flooring can be refinished over time, which holds appeal. Refinishing hardwoods involves sanding, staining (if desired), sealing, and buffing. This makes old floors look new again. However, many people love the look of older, worn wood floors as well. Flooring matters and if you are redoing your flooring with an eye on selling speak with your Highlands NC REALTOR to discuss the best options for your home.
