Tile That Looks Like Wood
Wood look flooring is currently one of the most popular trends in flooring. Tile is no exception to this trend, and because of its diverse style capabilities, tile is among one of the more popular wood look options. Wood look tile comes in both ceramic and porcelain options. It is designed to replicate the aesthetic appeal of natural wood. Tile is a long lasting alternative to hardwood and is incredibly durable.

The tiles can range in color, texture, tone, and even size. The most sought after advantage of wood look tile is its durability. Where hardwood is susceptible to cracks, chips, and warping, wood look tile can stand up to every day activity.
Caring for wood look tile is easy. Hardwood floors are known to be durable, but they require to be regularly cleaned with only select products, and eventually need to be refinished. Wood look tile takes away from the tedious maintenance of hardwood, and can resist most stains and scratched that hardwood cannot. Wood look tile is also the ideal choice if you are considering a radiant floor heating system. While installing a heating system under hardwood may be precarious due to the potential for warping, the conductive nature of wood look tile makes it a perfect match for radiant heating.
You can install wood look tile in more places that hardwood. Porcelain tile is incredibly durable and resistant to heat and water, so you can install wood look flooring in places like your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, even in the mudroom. Not only can you have unique style, but now you can have a unified look to your home by extending your wood look tile into multiple spaces.
