Wood-look tile is having a moment.
The product started to seep into homes in Las Vegas nearly two years ago, said Travis Phillips, owner of Affordable Flooring &More on Polaris Avenue.
“Ninety percent of our tile customers go with wood-looking tile,” he said. “It’s at its peak.”
Phillips said the reason wood-look tile has become so popular in Las Vegas is because the dry climate leaves homeowners with fewer flooring options.
“Hardwood isn’t a big product in Las Vegas because the humidity is so low, so they don’t do very well here,” he said. “When the humidity is so low, the planks can shrink, because the moisture dries out and there’s no humidity being put back in, which can cause gaps around each plank.”
