The look of wood with the durability of tile
Tile flooring that has the appearance of wood is rapidly earning a reputation for its greater durability versus its natural counterpart. Wood grain tile flooring products are designed with a focus on performance and durability, which makes them perfect for any room in commercial or residential projects. Some disadvantages to wood are that it can get scratched and dinged easily, and it also must be protected from contact with water. One of the best features of wood grain tile is that you can install these tiles where real wood isn’t recommended, like kitchens, bathrooms, and other wet areas. Tile is easier to clean and maintain than real hardwood, and thanks to refined manufacturing techniques they are durable enough for long-lasting enjoyment.
Details that make for a great overall look
Thanks to advancements in technology and manufacturing processes, wood grain tile flooring offers a lot of design possibilities with a wide range of colors in a spectrum of styles, from hand-scraped rustic to smooth and distinguished, that is loved by designers and homeowners. Textures and colors range from natural, earthy tones to colors that many homeowners would never dream of staining in hardwoods, such as washed-out whites and light grays. These colors have become increasingly widespread, especially in contemporary homes with open, light-filled spaces that bring out the tile’s visual wood-grain texture. Many of these products look so real that to the naked eye that it is nearly impossible to know what you’re seeing is not real wood.
A style for every taste
There is a massive selection of wood grain tile that meets just about all needs. Whether contemporary, rural, traditional, or modern, wood grain tile can fulfill your most creative designs. When style is combined with the wide range of available colors and sizes, the design opportunities are almost endless. Be sure to get creative with patterns! Wood grain tile can be laid with a herringbone effect or with a plank effect instead of the simple straight-lay pattern where the grout lines all line up. You can also find wood grain tile in styles like reclaimed wood, painted wood, and even cross grain. These textures are just the beginning of what we will see in the future for tile.

Wood grain tile flooring products come in a variety of colors, each carefully chosen to mimic the hues and textures of real wood. There is a multitude of sizes as well, with some of our largest planks stretching a few feet in length. No matter what your needs, we’re sure you’ll find the right size and color combination to make your project a success.
