Accenting your Wood Looking Tile

We have been working tirelessly with our customers for awhile now with how do you accent your wood looking tile. Not just doing a pattern like a herringbone or off setting the wood, but using a design or accent like we have done with other tiles before. Some of our customers were looking for the old wood working designs that they have seen in older homes with real wood floors. They did not want to use marble and granite to accent their homes but the variation of wood grains and colors instead. Something to compliment and accent their choice of flooring instead of removing the illusion of a wood looking floor.

We tried using wood looking material from all of the factories that we deal with and came up with a few that are the right thickness together as well as the right color combinations. The overall effect when they are done gives even our classic medallions a new feel using wood looking tile.

The wood grain that is these accents helps draw your eye to them as well as giving the depth and contour that one expects from wood. Further adding to the illusion of this being a true wood floor instead of it being a tile that looks like wood. But come on in and see for yourself if you need further convincing.

Tile Designs and Patterns

Most tiles have patterns in some form or another. Whether the design or pattern in the tile is crisp, clear, focused, blurry, repetitive, or singularly unique all comes down to the price we pay. When tiles look almost identical we lose some of the illusion of what we were going for with tile. If we wanted a marble look we want some of the characteristics of marble. When we look at stone looking tile we want that tile to vary just as much as stone but without the upkeep of a natural stone. When we look at Slate looking tiles we want the floor to have as much variation as slate. The ability to vary from one extreme to another. With woodlooking tile we want  to give that appearance of wood. When the design and pattern in the tile looks that real it is an easy choice to make.

What we would all like is when someone comes into our home that they are impressed with our home .  We would like our friends to notice how realistic looking our new marble looking floor tile is. We would like them to be  amazed at how realistic looking the porcelain tile is and how carefully the manufacturer has mimicked the stone. We want them to notice how realistic the grain and texture of the wood looking tile is to actual wood. We want our neighbors to look at our slate looking tile and be impressed with how smooth and even it is. The easy maintenance of tile is usually what makes us all look at tile initially. But when the tile pattern and design looks just as realistic as the real thing. That is what makes us choose tile over the real woods, laminates, marbles, granites, travertines, and limestones. The look and richness of natural products in the pattern and design but with the simple maintenance of a tile floor.
