wood-look tile in San Antonio bathroomPerhaps you’ve considered hardwood alternatives for areas of your San Antonio home, and your go-to option is laminate. But laminate doesn’t have the water-resistance you need for your bathroom or kitchen. You also need something that will hold up well under heavy traffic and be easy to clean and maintain. Wood-look tile is the perfect flooring solution! Read on to learn more from the team at Floor Coverings International of Northwest San Antonio about this exciting flooring option.

About Wood-Look Tile

Wood-look tile is a ceramic or porcelain tile that mimics the texture, color, and grain pattern of hardwood by using a high-resolution print. Thanks to advancements in technology and the manufacturing process wood-look tile products are so convincing they can fool the naked eye. In fact, higher-end versions can have more than a hundred distinct faces on the surface of the tile.

Product Variety

We partner with leading national manufacturers of wood-look tile products, including Daltile and Shaw Floors. Their products provide impressive realism. Choose hickory looks that have cross-sawn marks, wormholes, and swirls that you expect to find in a real wood plank. Or perhaps you are looking for ash, walnut, or cherry look-alikes. These styles are all available in tile options.

Design Inspiration

Wood-look tile grew in popularity as a water-resistant option for bathroom and kitchen floors, but it can be used for so much more. Renovate your home with wood-look backsplashes, shower walls, or countertops. For wall applications, install the tile horizontally or vertically for different effects. Also decide between grout colors that will blend in and preserve the natural look, or instead opt for a contrasting color for a unique design.

You can also expand the benefits of wood-look tile flooring to other rooms of the house. Since radiant heating pairs well with ceramic and porcelain tile, consider installing it in bedrooms and family rooms. Wood-look tile is also an excellent choice for indoor-outdoor flooring. Extending your floors to outside areas opens up the home and encourages more time spent outdoors.
