Although hardwood floors are among the most classic and popular flooring types, they aren’t always necessarily the best. Depending on environmental factors and budget restraints, other flooring solutions may be a better fit.

Hardwood is among the most expensive flooring solutions there is. Pets and kids are also sometimes rough on wood, and repairing and resurfacing the floor is quite costly. Wood floors also need some soundproofing in many situations, and cleaning hardwood is a constant process.

If you like the appearance of wood but are interested in alternatives, Greatmats offers numerous wood-look tile flooring options that are cost-effective and low maintenance vs the expensive nature of traditional wood.

Reversible Wood Grain Foam Tiles

Each 2x2 foot tile is 14 mm thick and made of durable EVA foam. This makes for a very comfortable floor that is economical and low maintenance. Compared to hardwood, installing this floor is a breeze for a quick, DIY process. Once laid in place, the floor provides anti-fatigue and insulative benefits, and it is also durable and waterproof.
