Tile that Looks Like Wood, But Isn’t

Love the look of hardwood but hate the maintenance? Wood gives your home a distinguished warmth . . . until daily wear and tear starts to take its toll. Scratches, chips, and dulling spell time consuming and costly repair work, resurfacing, and resealing for your wood floor.

If you tire of the heavy maintenance and constant worry over your wood floor, there is an alternative. Tile that looks like wood is so realistic that you’ll want to get up close to make sure it really is tile. You won’t have to worry about moisture control, how you clean it, or the daily wear and tear of your family’s comings and goings.

The Best Wood-Look Tile Yet

Recent technology has made today’s wood-look tile a serious contender with traditional wood floors.

•    Unlike most tile, grout joints are almost non-existent, which enhances the natural look.
•    The grain on the tile is often printed, but looks so real it’ll have you doing a double take.
•    It’s available in several natural colors that mimic hardwoods.
•    The newest tile series feature a reclaimed or painted wood look that’s right on trend.
•    Tile comes in planks just like wood does for more natural joints and versatile layouts.

High Performance Wood-Look Tile

You’d never think of putting hardwood in the bathroom where it would be sure to warp. You might only put it in the kitchen with reservations. Wood-look tile, on the other hand, can be placed virtually anywhere.

Tile that looks like wood is made from ceramic or porcelain. It doesn’t absorb much moisture and is super strong. It wears really well over time and there won’t be any resurfacing or refinishing to worry about.
