With pine, dogwood, Southern magnolia, and 15 types of oak, South Carolina has no shortage of forests, which may be why this region loves wood and wood-look floors. So whether you want hardwood, a wood-look tile, or waterproof flooring, feel free to come into our showroom when you're shopping for flooring in Goose Creek, SC.
The charm of hardwood
With textures such as hand-scraped and weathered, and with wide or random planks so often seen in historical mid-1800s homes, this flooring epitomizes the concept of Southern charm. There's something for every decor with hundreds of species from which to choose, numerous textures, and countless stains. Hardwood also has benefits, such as durability, versatility, cost-effectiveness, and adds value to a property.
For those who love the natural beauty of wood and have a practical bent, there is engineered wood flooring, which has a construction that makes it more stable and better able to handle water.
Wood floors are trending, and that's expected to last at least 15 years, and, by extension, so are wood look floors. These types of waterproof flooring are all affordable, highly realistic, and style and have countless benefits, making them terrific alternatives to genuine wood.
1. Luxury vinyl: With nature-inspired images of wood (and stone and tile), all are taken with high definition photography and have micro beveling and embossing to add depth, dimension, and textured looks. It is ultra-durable and can be cut into long planks to mimic hardwood or groutable, tile-sized squares.
A newer, more amped-up version of LVF is called waterproof vinyl flooring. It is thicker, more durable, and offers the highest level of moisture protection.
2. Wood-look tile: Thanks to modern technology, this includes realistic raised grains, available in countless colors, including the high trending variation. The tiles can be cut into planks of any size.
3. Waterproof laminate. A non-wood construction makes this spill-proof and able to be installed in any room in the house.
