Discover the Benefits of Wood-Look Porcelain
No one can deny the rich look of hardwood and the texture and character it can add to a room, but there are some spaces where wood might be impractical. Homeowners who don’t want to worry about maintenance might not choose it for high-traffic areas such as kitchens and rec rooms, or wet areas such as bathrooms, for example. Wood is lovely on an outdoor deck, but exposure to the elements requires regular staining and sealing.
The good news is that you don’t have to give up the beautiful look of hardwood with Porcelanosa’s wood-look porcelain, which replicates the natural hues and grain patterns found in multiple species from oak to walnut to ash. The tiles are available in a variety of sizes to replicate narrow or wide-plank styles. They’re resistant to impact, scratching and fading, and fire and water damage. Even better, the tiles from the Seedwood and Park-Ker’s Forest collections are made from 95-percent recycled material, resulting in 40-percent reduced carbon emissions in the production process.
