Stunning “Wood” Plank Porcelain Tiles

One of the hottest trends in the last couple of years is high quality porcelain tiles that are made to replicate the look of hardwood flooring. Hardwood flooring is stunning, but can have some limitations in certain applications. Wood can scratch from sand at entryways and can warp and discolor in wet applications like bathrooms. It can also scratch from your pet’s toenails or ding if you accidentally drop a glass in your kitchen.

Porcelain tile is one of the most durable flooring surfaces you can use. It is stain resistant and very difficult to chip or break. It’s so durable, it’s frequently used in shopping malls and airports! If you love the look of hardwood, have concerns about dings, scratches or wet areas, from your pets, kids or everyday living, porcelain wood plank tiles are the perfect choice for you. From elegant and refined to casual and rustic, there is a porcelain plank tile that will fit into your design scheme. Concerned that a porcelain floor might be too cold? There are fantastic in-floor heat options from Nuheat, which has the longest warranty on the market – 25 years!

Here’s a gallery of some of favorite wood looks!

Concrete from Negev
