How Wood-Look Tile Works

Wood-look tile is a ceramic or porcelain tile that has been made to look like a hardwood plank. An image of hardwood is printed on each tile, and they can be textured to create a more realistic appearance. From shape to image, each tile is a quality alternative to hardwood.

Benefits

Durability

While hardwood is a durable flooring option, wood-look tile is even more resilient to scratching, fading, and dents. Generally speaking, wood-look tile will be unaffected by the everyday wear and tear of life. This means it’s also a great pet-friendly flooring option.

Water-Resistance

Wood-look tile is incredibly water-resistant, meaning it is a great choice for damp areas of your Wylie home. From kitchens to bathrooms, wood-look tile will perform beautifully.

Considerations

Warmth

Tile isn’t known for its insulating properties. In the middle of winter, your wood-look tile will be cool to the touch. To combat this, consider installing radiant floor heating under the tile.

Maintenance

Wood-look tile is a low maintenance flooring option. Simply sweep and mop regularly to keep your wood-look tile spotless and shining.
