No longer limited to traditional sizes, wood look tile comes in planks of varying widths and lengths, as well as unique shapes and mosaics.
Wood look tile flooring is one of the hottest trends in the flooring industry. Here are the top 5 reasons it is not just as good as natural wood, it is actually better.

Use in any room

Indoor / Outdoor


Anyone who has cared for or maintained a wood porch or wood deck recognizes that wood does not have the strength to weather the elements. Splintering, cracking, and breaking are common for wood planks exposed to outdoor climates.


In contrast, porcelain endures every climate - even extreme hot and freezing temperatures - with ease.

Low Maintenance


Wood floors are beautiful. In comparison to carpet, the style, durability, and cleanability of wood flooring make it a favorite among homeowners and businesses alike.


Now imagine that durability extended to a surface that is waterproof, scratch-proof, stain-proof, dent-proof, and fire-resistant. All without sacrificing style.


And unlike real wood, wood look porcelain floors will never need to be stripped, re-stained, and re-sealed every few years.


Wait, real wood is eco-friendly. True. However, the chemicals needed to prepare real wood as flooring are extremely harmful to the environment.


Stains, finishes, and sealants emit toxic VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into your home and contribute to air pollution outside. These chemicals can cause health problems, especial among people with compromised immune systems, the elderly, young children, and allergy sufferers.


With increased demand for real wood flooring, deforestation is also a concern.


Tile is made of all-natural ingredients (clay, sand, feldspar, and water) and is completely free of toxins. Tile has no VOCs, PVCs (polyvinyl chloride), no formaldehyde, and no allergens. Tile is sustainably sourced and easy to recycle. Plus, tile has a longer life than real wood, which reduces tile's already low manufacturing carbon footprint.


When it comes to going green, there is no contest. Wood look tile beats real wood in every category.
