Overview of Wood Tile
Our partner manufacturers are able to print the details that make wood flooring so desirable — such as the subtle differences in shade and grain — onto porcelain or ceramic tiles to create a beautiful, wood-like appearance. Because they have the durability and water-resistance of tiles, wood-look tiles can be used to achieve a hardwood look in areas where traditional wood floors normally shouldn’t be installed (such as bathrooms).
Where to Use
Because wood-look tile comes in a wide range of colors, sizes, and grains, you can easily mix and match different types to create a custom floor. They are great for areas prone to moisture or sun bleaching (two big problems for wood flooring). You can also use wood-look tiles in projects like custom showers, backsplashes, and outdoor spaces.
Pros and Cons
Wood-look tiles are more sustainable than wood flooring as they don’t require the harvesting of old-growth trees. They also cost less than wood flooring to buy and install. Wood-look tiles are extremely durable and hold up well to pets, furniture, and foot-traffic. However, like other porcelain and ceramic flooring, these tiles can get a bit chilly on cool mornings.
You can easily maintain your tile floor with sweeping and mopping, but to keep it in peak condition, it is recommended that you periodically reseal the tiles.
