Tile That Looks Like Wood Is Not The Only Product That Looks Like Wood.
The popularity of Wood Look Porcelain Tiles may raise questions in some customers who want to invest in flooring products that will last, rather than wasting their savings in a trend that will soon pass.
Wood Look Tile Is Not A Trend. It’s Just A Superior Product.
The term “Wood Look” defines a category of flooring products that mimic natural hardwood floors by the look and the shape. This is a category that was dominated by laminate, vinyl and engineered wood floors. However, Today porcelain tile is the most popular material in this category with its superior features over other products.
Manufacturers had to come a long way to produce planks size tiles
Earlier examples of tile that look like wood came in a 6×24 size. These tiles were cut from 24×24 tiles. However, a such small size wasn’t able to compete with other products in the “Wood Look” category.
It took over a decade for the manufacturers to develop long and narrow molds to produce a 6×36 size that made the wood look tiles popular.
Today, tile that looks like wood became a new category in
We advise shoppers to chose sizes bigger than 6×36
If we were shopping for a marble or concrete look tile, it’s very unlikely that we would choose a 12×12 or 16×16 tile for our remodeling project. Thanks to Tv shows, everybody knows these sizes are out of style. However, porcelain tiles that look like wood floors is a new concept and we are not yet familiar with its sizes. Therefore, it’s a little hard to know what are the sizes we should prefere to avoid seam and grout issues.
A 6×24 size tile is the equivalent of a 12×12 tile. A 6×36 tile is the equivalent of a 16×16 tile. Since we would not choose these sizes in other style porcelain tiles, we should also not choose it in wood look tiles either. These are the size that many manufacturers dropped a long time ago, and they are out of style. When remodeling your floor, you may want to use an up to date tile size as much as an up to date tile style.
