Fine Design Living (http://www.FineDesignLiving.com), one of the Greater Toronto Area’s leading boutique design and build firms, specializing in high-quality exterior and interior custom renovations for residential and commercial clients, is pleased to announce that it’s providing an eco-friendly alternative for those looking for traditional hardwood flooring.
“Homeowners looking to create a beautiful space that is warm and inviting generally turn to hardwood floors. While hardwood floors provide a classic, and in some cases, modern or contemporary look with the right design in place, there are some limitations as to what type of space they should be used for,” says Braden White, owner of Fine Design Living. “Wood flooring is great in bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms, but due to its sensitivity to water and moisture, it is generally not suggested to use it in bathrooms and other spaces where there may be regular contact with water and moisture. But at the same time, a lot of people love the look of hardwood floors in bathrooms, kitchens, and entranceways, but decide not to use it due to the potential costly damage that could arise from moisture and water.”
Over the years, homeowners and contractors have looked for reliable, eco-friendly alternatives to hardwood floors. With the ease of maintenance, practicality, and the wide range of decorative value, nothing is as versatile as ceramic hardwood flooring. In fact, according to White, ceramic hardwood flooring can look so much like traditional hardwood flooring that it’s difficult to notice the difference at first glance.
“Although ceramic and porcelain tiles may look the same, there are some major differences,” he explains. “Most significantly, porcelain tiles are denser than ceramic tiles, which makes them more durable and water-resistant. This is an important consideration for those who want to install tiles that look like hardwood in their bathrooms and kitchens.”
Fine Design Living installs several different porcelain tile products that look identical to hardwood. One of the several brands of porcelain hardwood tiles that Fine Design Living installs is manufactured by Italian-based company Unicomstarker. The porcelain hardwood floors come in a number of different colours and are perfect for residential and commercial use.
“Unicomstarker porcelain hardwood flooring products are designed to integrate perfectly with modern-day lifestyles and stand up to the everyday exposure to water and moisture,” White concludes. “Available in a wide range of sizes, colours, and textures, Unicomstarker is great for every room in the house, including the bathroom and kitchen floors.”
