Trending Now – The Hardwood Look of Plank Tile
The warm, traditional look of wood flooring never goes out of style, and tile that mimics wood is the latest trend in the flooring industry. Known as plank tile, this modern flooring material offers the appeal of natural wood and durability of low-maintenance ceramic or porcelain. These long, narrow tiles fit together like strips of wooden flooring, and the result is a gorgeous floor that seems traditional but is on the cutting edge of contemporary style and current flooring trends.
Like any type of ceramic or porcelain floor tile, we will install plank tile with adhesive and finish it with grout in a matching or contrasting color. Plank tile is available in a wide range of colors and textures to match corresponding types of wood, including oak, walnut, maple, birch, and bamboo. The quiet beauty of gray wood is especially popular for a rustic, weathered appearance. Because most types of porcelain and ceramic tiles are appropriate for use near moisture, you can even enjoy the look of hardwood floors in your bathrooms.
As with hardwood flooring, you can choose to install plank tiles in a standard straight pattern or create a more ornate design for a formal appearance. The mosaic squares of parquet floors create a beautiful display, and appealing patterns such as herringbone and chevron create angled interest. These elegant designs add a spacious, sophisticated look in your traditional or contemporary home.
Although hardwood floors require maintenance such as cleaning, sanding, staining and sealing, plank tile flooring requires little care beyond regular cleaning. As a beautiful, durable flooring surface, plank tile flooring is a timeless trend that is certain to endure for many years.
