Ceramic Tile with a Wooden Twist

June 10, 2010

Hardwood flooring is a wonderful thing but it may not be the best option for certain rooms in the home. For instance, the moisture level in the average bathroom tends not make it the best candidate for a new hardwood floor.

On the other hand wouldn’t a wood floor in a modern bathroom look absolutely wonderful? If you are nodding your head in agreement there is a way that you can get the look and still have a bathroom floor that is practical and durable – ceramic and porcelain tile that looks like wood.

Sound farfetched? It’s not. Advances in ceramic tile manufacture have given rise to a whole new breed of ceramic tiles that can mimic the look of other materials, including wood. These tiles come in both basic ceramic and porcelain options and can be found in styles that look just like a number of different species of wood so you can indulge your inner interior designer.

All the advantages of ceramic tile are still intact when buying these wood look tiles. They are still easy to clean, incredibly durable and will last for years. Most ceramic tile bathroom floors are the easiest of all to clean, especially if you have your tile installer seal the grout when they lay it, since the tile grout in a bathroom does tend to get a little grimy over time.

You don’t have to stop at the floor of course. One of the biggest advantages of ceramic tile from a design standpoint is that it can work as well on the walls as it does on the floor. Love the look of those Swedish style sauna bathrooms that have the sumptuous, warm wooden walls and floors? These new “faux wood” ceramic tile options can help you achieve it for less.
