jersey city tile flooring

Hardwood is one of the most popular flooring options for a reason: it’s timeless. It adds warmth to any home, regardless of the décor, and when it’s properly maintained, hardwood lasts generations. Hardwood floors seem flawless, but they do have one downside: they don’t work well in moist environments. That’s why, at Floor Coverings International North Jersey, we instead suggest wood-look tile as a hardwood alternative.

Wood-Look Tiles

Ceramic faux-wood tiles have surged in popularity in recent years because of their ability to emulate the look and feel of hardwood floors in wet spaces like bathrooms. They avoid the warping and buckling of hardwood while offering its warmth and elegance.


Due to improvements in manufacturing processes, wood-look tiles can be made in any conceivable color or style, from red oak with prominent grain to a subdued maple plank in amber. We carry thousands of flooring options, including many faux-wood tiles, to match the aesthetic of any Jersey City home.

Here are a few additional advantages to tile flooring:

  • Tile is durable. Many companies manufacture chip and scratch-resistant tiles for high foot traffic areas and pet owners. In the event that a tile is damaged, it is easy to replace.
  • It’s easy to clean and maintain. Most tiles require no maintenance aside from regular wiping. Natural stone tiles are an exception; they should be regularly sealed to protect them from minerals found in tap water.
  • The tile aesthetic is as timeless as hardwood. From German castles to the New York Subway, tiles are prominent features of many famous works of architecture and design.
