Wood Effect Porcelain
Remodeling the bathroom and kitchen presents a huge array of flooring and wall tile options. Porcelain tile that looks like wood may be just the decor option you're looking for. Wood-looking tile, in particular, offers not only the wonderful benefits of porcelain tile for a kitchen or bathroom remodel, but its appearance is so realistic that it can be used throughout your entire living space. Here are some of the many benefits that wood-look tile brings to your design:
It Resists Moisture
A wood-look tile provides the same beautiful, warm look you'd get from real wood. But, because it's made from porcelain, it resists moisture in the bathroom, kitchen, basement, or any other area of the house where water can go. Using grout to seal the tiles will help to make your tile resistant to water and mold buildup.
It Is Easily Maintained
Wood-look tile is the perfect way to achieve the natural beauty of wood without having to worry about its upkeep. Wood-look porcelain tile doesn't need routine polishing, and it is easy to clean. All you need is a mop and bucket or a spray cleaner and mop; particularly dirty spots can be simply scrubbed away with a brush. Regular broom sweeping and mopping will keep your tile looking new for years to come.
Get creative with different sizes of tiles and unique patterns, such as staggered, brick, or herringbone layouts. And don't limit yourself to the floor, adding this tile to walls will create a serene nature-inspired look.
Whether you're looking for a rustic or contemporary design, wood-look porcelain tile offers the benefits of easy maintenance with plenty of room for imaginative design.
