7 Reasons To Love Wood Look Tile

Everyone loves solid wood cabinetry. Durable, functional, and beautiful, it’s the obvious best choice for homeowners. But what about wood flooring? While wood floors are surely beautiful as well — and immensely popular — they can be costly, and may not always be the best choice for wet areas like the kitchen and bathroom. Because of this, many homeowners opt for tile.

While practical and affordable, tile options in the past often lacked the warmth and unique beauty of wood floors — but not anymore. With wood look tile, you get the best of both worlds. Here are just a few of the reasons to love wood look tile, and why it may be the best choice for you.

Patchwork Peril

Instead of sacrificing warmth for practicality, some homeowners will compromise by installing tile flooring in the kitchen and wood flooring in the living room. While this could be is a smart choice in some homes, what happens when you have an open concept kitchen? Wood look tile lets you avoid the mismatched lines that divide an open space with different types of flooring. You’ll get a more cohesive look that is warm and practical — and absolutely beautiful.

The Great Pretender

Today’s wood look tile is so convincing, it’s hard to tell it apart from the real thing. Some styles, like our 6” x 24” Sonoma Driftwood, are designed to mimic the rich, natural patina of real driftwood, including a warm gray tone with slight variation, and realistic wood grain. Other styles, like our Carolina Timber in beige, offers the natural warmth we’ve come to expect from wood flooring. To view more options for wood look tile offered at TheRTAStore, click here.
