Why Use a Wood-Look Tile?

Wood-look tiles are a great alternative to real wood floors for several reasons. Wood-effect tiles can be made of hardier materials that will withstand more wear and tear than real wood. Ceramic wood-look tile and porcelain wood-look tiles are the most commonly used materials for these reasons, and they both fare well in high-use applications. Both materials will give you the look of natural wood floors without the high maintenance. You will also not have to worry about water damage, scratches, or termite damage with wood-look tiles.

Wood Look Tile Patterns

Wood-look tile patterns are plentiful. You can have wood-look tile flooring and walls that have a standard staggered pattern or go with something more dynamic. Some of this year’s most eye-catching patterns for wood-look tiles are chevron, herringbone, hexagons, and rounded shapes. Wood-look ceramic floor tiles are popular patterned tile choices because they come in a variety of geometric shapes and can be painted to mimic the most beautiful types of wood. You can enjoy similar results if you prefer to use wood-look tiles made of porcelain.

Wood Look Tile in Kitchens

While natural wood floors are stunning in kitchens, they tend to be too high maintenance for many homeowners to maintain. Kitchens get so much daily use that natural wood floors are often stained and scratched more often than many can keep up with. The costs of keeping natural wood floors pristine in a kitchen will be too expensive for most. In this case, it would be best to have ceramic or porcelain wood-look floors.

Wood Look Tile in Bathrooms

Wood-look bathroom tile ideas are great because ceramic and porcelain tiles are ideal for moist areas. You can line the walls with wood-look shower tiles, or use wood-look floor tiles to extend the look from your halls into your bathroom for uniformity. Visual results that wouldn’t be possible in the bathroom with actual wood can be created with strong wood-look tiles. Thanks to advancements in tile production, wood-look shower tiles featuring hexagon wood-look tiles are popping up in bathrooms nationwide. Additionally, there is a wide selection of chevron wood-look tiles emerging.

Wood-Look Tile in Bedrooms

Deep brown wood-look tiles are excellent for such makeovers. You can take the opposite route and select a light shade of wood-look tile and create a farmhouse chic bedroom. The high-quality prints available in both porcelain and ceramic will give you plenty of stylish options.
