All About Waterproof Wood Look

There’s no denying the visual impact that a gorgeous wood floor provides when you enter a home. No matter what your favorite hardwood species is, whether you prefer a refined, cleaner visual or a distressed visual with heavy splits, your floor will capture rustic charm and natural beauty to perfection. Now, imagine that your favorite wood tones and characteristics were able to resist moisture and liquid spills. Well, imagine no more: Waterproof wood-look floors are here to uplift our favorite rooms!

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT)

It’s no secret that LVT is thriving in the flooring industry, thanks to both its waterproof performance and improved wood visuals! LVT floors are tremendously easier to install (even DIY) than hardwood floors, even easier to afford and maintain, and resilient against daily wear-and-tear. With the rise of open floor plans, LVT is an exceptional choice since it can be used throughout the home in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, mudrooms, and even basements!


Thanks to its durability as well as dent and scratch resistance, laminate floors have always been regarded as an affordable alternative to hardwood. Laminate floors are also more water-resistant than hardwood floors, while still providing a wide array of textured, distressed, and hand-scraped finishes. Beveled edges and longer, wider plank sizes add even more realism for hardwood lovers. For a chaotic household, laminate will lend the strength and support needed while still cleaning up quickly and effectively.


Not only are porcelain and ceramic some of the longest-lasting products available, but these options also come in a variety of wood-look textures, shades and large plank formats for realistic design possibilities. Whether you live in a humid, wet climate or a dry, arid atmosphere, tile floors provide the hardwood look but with great durability, minimal upkeep, and outstanding performance for damp conditions. Porcelain is especially great for repelling stains and is suitable for radiant, in-floor heat.

If you have an active home with kids, pets and frequent get-togethers, you already know the value of easy clean-up and the ability to wet mop your floors. Contact our Mobile Floor Source to help you pick out the waterproof wood look floors that will help you save time and give the look you crave!
