Wood Look Tile Trends

Wood look tile has established itself as a standard in the tile industry. It’s not the newcomer it once was, but it keeps reinventing itself. With interesting new colors, details, and applications, it never feels outdated either.

Mixing Looks

Another interesting wood look flooring is mixing wood look with other tile look, such are concrete or marble look tile. Variation of looks makes the floor more dynamic but retains continuity of mood and warmth throughout the room.

Use in Contemporary Design

Wood look tile is often used in more traditional designs. But that shouldn't stop you from using it in contemporary, urban industrial, or a Scandinavian-influenced design. It can be as sleek as concrete or marble if you pick the right look.

Several products in our wood look collection have a streamlined, smooth look that is well suited to modern and contemporary styles.
