One of the hottest tile trends of the moment is wood-look, or wood pattern, tile. This crossover flooring style is ceramic or porcelain tile that is intended to replicate the look of hardwood planks. Thus, you can get the desirable look of hardwood in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and other spaces where you would typically install waterproof, easy-to-maintain tile.
Could wood-look tile be the right choice for your St. Charles home? Our Floor Coverings International West County, MO experts can help you decide:
About Wood-Look Tile
- Wood-look tile is made of ceramic or porcelain that has been covered in a high-definition image of a wood grain pattern and finished with a wood-like texture. These tiles are available in many colors and styles, so if you have a particular look in mind, you should be able to achieve it.
- It’s a good idea to have your wood-look tile professionally installed, since it requires skill to lay the tiles in a way that successfully mimics the look of real hardwood.
- Wood-look tile has the durability and ease of maintenance of ceramic and porcelain. Unlike real wood, it won’t scratch or dent, and it is waterproof and easy to clean. Overall, wood-look tile is a great choice for areas of your home where you want the look of hardwood, but not the accompanying maintenance.
- Tile can feel cold and hard underfoot. If you are concerned about the comfort of wood-look tile floors, consider installing under-floor heating or adding area rugs in high-use areas.
