Wood Tile – Friend or Faux??

Faux wood tile is one of the fastest growing trends in home remodeling. It gives you the look and feel of real hardwood but is more practical for areas of the home where moisture could present a problem – bathrooms, kitchens, utility rooms and foyers.

Faux hardwood tiles are commonly used on walls, as well as floors. The look of wood on the wall creates a custom architectural feature that enhances any room of the home. Homeowners love the look and feel of reclaimed wood – like the wood from an old barn or even antique furniture. But reclaimed wood can be quite expensive. Now homeowners can add that reclaimed wood style with wall tiles made of ceramic which offer a natural, authentic weathered look.

Faux Wood Tile ChoicesDesigners and homeowners love the wide array of finishes available in faux wood tile. These range from natural, earth tones to colors that homeowners may have never dreamed of staining hardwoods: washed-out whites and light grays, which are some of the more popular color choices.

Another great feature of faux wood tile is that it is available in many length and width choices. This allows you to create many of the popular design styles that hardwood flooring would not accomodate. Here it is shown in the herringbone design:

If you hadn’t considered a faux wood tile for your home, I hope you will now. Don’t be afraid to put tile wood planks on the walls! It’s a great look as a backsplash or as a wall accent. After all, tiles aren’t just intended to be walked on, so enjoy their looks at eye level, too.

It is a pleasure to let others know how pleased we were with the work you and your crew of Tile Right Flooring did in our master bath.

We wanted a new tile and glass shower and tile flooring installed in the master bath. When you came out to estimate the cost of the project you also gave us some insights to the project that we had not thought about. Several of those ideas were then incorporated into the project.

Also, the experience with you and your crew during the installing phase was most satisfactory. The crew was so polite, worked quietly and consistently, and cleaned up everything before leaving each afternoon.

The project itself turned out even better than we had anticipated. The shower walls and flooring are perfectly aligned and enhance the entire bath.

We are extremely pleased with the job and Kenny and his crew did on our project and would highly recommend Tile Right Flooring to others.
