I am crazy about these new ceramic and porcelain tiles made to look like wide plank wood floors. Sounds strange, I know, but you would not believe how realistic it is and gorgeous. Besides being cool, there are some real advantages:
- Tile resists moisture and won’t expand or crack in wet environments , making it prefect for kitchens and bathrooms.
- You can install radiant floor heating under these floors.
- No chips, nicks or scratches like you get on real wood…the tile durable and long lasting. No need to re-sand every few years.
- Easy to maintain and clean.
I really like what it does for bathrooms, especially, because it adds a warm element by mimicking wood. Also works well in a kitchen with white cabinets, for the same reason.
