Tile trends: wood-like appearance

Published: October 6, 2016

Hardwood floors are a timeless classic. But classic doesn’t always mean practical. Hardwood floors don’t do well in kitchens or bathrooms. If you love the look of wood flooring there’s another choice available: wood-like tile. Yes, tile! Porcelain tile flooring offers beautiful floors with the look of wood and all the benefits of tile.

Porcelain tile: ceramic’s more versatile cousin

Porcelain tile is too often overlooked in favor of the more traditional ceramic tile floors. Fact is, porcelain tile manufacturers are now able to create far more authentic designs in porcelain tile flooring than ceramic. Porcelain is denser, more porous, and harder than ceramic tile thus offering greater stain and water resistance. Stronger than granite and resistant to staining, porcelain is also easy to clean and offers superior wear resistance. Learn more about porcelain tile.
