Wood-look flooring expands application options

Solid hardwood is not your only option if you consider wood to be the most visually appealing flooring material. You can opt for engineered wood, which has a surface layer of hardwood and a plywood base that tolerates moisture. These planks are designed for floating floor construction. Wood-look flooring is another option. Kingdon's Home Center, located in Watseka, Illinois, offers a wide selection of all types of floor coverings as well as installation services.


Porcelain wood look tile is perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. Porcelain is a type of ceramic. This nonporous stain and scratch-resistant material is made of kaolin clay, while ceramic is composed of more coarse clay. Porcelain is the most durable type of tile on the market. It can be placed outdoors in warm climates.

Luxury vinyl

Multi-layer vinyl plank flooring looks like hardwood planks. Besides, some brands of tile feature a high-tech design layer that looks like wood. The wear layer protects the design layer, so thicker is better. Because of its waterproof core, this pet-friendly flooring does not sustain damage with prolonged exposure to water.


Like luxury vinyl, laminate comprises several layers. Planks and tiles have a fiberboard core, so the floor is warm underfoot throughout the seasons. Some laminate flooring is waterproof, but only for the amount of time specified by the manufacturer. After the typical one day timeframe, a floor can sustain damage if the water is not removed.
