Need help on flooring

pstmartinApril 9, 2013
I'm looking to replace the flooring in my house. It's an older traditional house. I'd like hardwood floors but we have a large dog and are concerned about the floors getting scratched and ruined. I've considered porcelain tile that looks like wood. Any suggestions?

Riddle Construction and Design
Both wood and tile have advantages and disadvantages. You have to decide which features best fit your lifestyle and family. This is not a right or wrong- this is a choice. Wood is timeless, warmer and softer to stand on and can be refinished, but yes it does scratch. Tile is more durable, does not show scratches, is harder and colder to stand on but will hold up to large dogs longer. There are some beautiful porcelain tiles out there these days that resemble wood. Check out these brands-Acacia, Denali, Fioranese Cottage Wood, Provenza Cross Cut Wood
