Tile That Looks Like Wood
Hardwood isn’t the most practical option for basements, bathrooms, and kitchens, but that doesn’t mean you have to disband your parquet visions. A great alternative to actual wood, wood-look tile merges the natural appearance of hardwood, with the hard-wearing, moisture-combating abilities of tile.
How Is Wood Look Tile Made?
Like other tile styles, wood-look tile is crafted out of durable materials like ceramic or porcelain. Ceramics and porcelains are both crafted out of natural clays, then kiln-fired for a dense end result that can tackle heavy wear-and-tear, extreme heat, and moisture. Wood-look tile achieves its realistic surface via advances in digital printing technology, which utilizes photographs of actual hardwoods to create the tile’s visuals and textures. The end result is cut into both tiles and planks, which look and feel a lot like the real thing.
Where to Install Wood Look Tile
Wood-look tile works beautifully in both in the home or office, and can be used as either flooring or wall-covering. Just like other kinds of tile, wood-look tile can readily manage splashes, spills, furniture moves, and excessive foot traffic. These tiles are very easy to take care of, and those that get damaged over time can be replaced on an individual basis. This makes for a much more economical future as the years roll on.
