Wood Tile

If wood floors are not in your budget then you might want to consider wood grain floor tiles. There are many benefits in utilizing tile that looks like wood such as long-term durability, it is easy to clean and it is a fraction of the cost of most fine woods. The biggest benefit of wood grain tile is that it can be used in wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchens and basements. A final consideration to make is whether to use porcelain or ceramic tile. Ceramic tile can be somewhat more susceptible to chipping as it is not as dense as porcelain. When choosing grout colors, try to match to the darkest color in the tile. But you can't beat the variety in color and "grain" options. Check out some of these options here.
