When it comes to tile, ceramic, porcelain, and stone are some of the more popular options. Ceramic and porcelain are both made from the same materials, but porcelain is denser because it is heated at a higher temperature.
Wood-look tile is a manufacturing marvel, designed to look just like real wood while offering all the amazing benefits of tile. Wood-look tiles are made using revolutionary high-definition printing that creates an exceptionally realistic appearance.
It’s available in both plank and tile formats, as well as ceramic and porcelain. Wood-look tiles come in uneven lengths to add a more authentic effect.
It’s not recommended to install real hardwood in moisture-prone rooms or homes located in humid climates because the wood can warp in response to humidity, temperature, and dampness.
The major benefit of wood-look tile is that you can now have the elegant appearance of real hardwood in any room like the kitchen, bathroom, entryway, and laundry room without worrying about issues down the line.
Wood-look tiles typically don’t require the same level of upkeep as hardwood floors. They don’t need to be refinished and it’s easy to clean up messes and accidents. Tiles are also more stain-resistant than hardwood and don’t trap dust, dirt, and other allergens. Additionally, tile can stand up to pet claws and scratches better than hardwood.
In bathrooms and kitchens that see heavy wear and tear, it can be frustrating to think of investing in a design feature that might not last. Since tile is constructed using high heat and pressure, it's for bathroom and kitchen backsplashes.
Thanks to its construction, tile doesn’t tend to crack or chip easily and protects walls from moisture, spills, and accidents that occur often. Wall or backsplash can be made from a combination of tile, glass, and metal to create a more dimensional look and make a long wall more visually appealing.
Certain tiles, like porcelain, are best left for flooring since they tend to be denser and heavier meaning they could fall off the wall and cause damage. Wall tile can be installed anywhere you see fit in your home, including your kitchen and bathroom.
Creating your very own custom tile design is easier than you think. Rather than a long, drawn-out process, creating a custom backsplash only requires choosing tiles and a design you enjoy.
We also offer custom tile showers and baths so you can create a truly unique look tailored to you. When installation comes, the tiles are laid onto the wall in the design you created and cut to fit in the space.
