Beautiful hardwood options for your kitchen and bathroom

Homeowners love the look of hardwood in their home, and wood look flooring in the kitchen and bathroom is something many of us want. But is it a good idea? Wood and water don't often mix well together. Well, Empire Today - the flooring experts with over 55 years of experience and more than 2 million satisfied customers - have the solutions.

With their Aqua Defense flooring options, you can now afford that beautiful wood look even in rooms prone to high moisture.

In this Socal Spotlight, we highlight three options that Empire Today offers its customers.

Vinyl Plank flooring is one of their most popular wood-look floors. It looks and feels so much like real wood, most people can't tell the difference. Plus, it's 100% waterproof. Since it's vinyl from top to bottom, it doesn't allow any liquid to seep through and won't be affected by moisture. It's also extremely durable being scratch-resistant, dent-resistant, scuff-resistant and stain resistant - it's ideal for homes with kids, pets and higher traffic. It's also budget friendly without sacrificing quality or style.

Another option on offer is Laminate. Empire Today's wood laminate, which also looks just like real wood floors is 100% waterproof and can tolerate splashes, spills and condensation from showers. It has a special scratch resistant finish so you can worry less about your pet's nails or kids running through the house. And best of all, it's made right here in the USA!

A third option is tile. Porcelain tile that looks just like wood planks. These wood tile floors have become very popular in the last couple of years. It's moisture resistant and has a slip-resistant surface making it an ideal choice for bathrooms. When installed this is grouted, just like a tile, which looks great and gives a definite designer look.
