Tile flooring that looks like hardwood – Westchester NY

porcelain tile that looks like hardwood westchesterI have many customers that love the look of hardwood flooring, but don’t want to add hardwood to places where they are concerned about water – such as kitchens, bathrooms, entryways and basements.   Well, now there is a great looking solution that is waterproof – porcelain tile that looks like hardwood.  Yes, it has the best of both worlds…it’s beautiful and waterproof.
With porcelain planks, you stagger the long tiles, just like hardwood and you use very thin grout lines.  It really is a stylish and modern look.  You can also arrange the tiles for a herringbone effect.


Yacht club tile whiteI love this fashion forward tile because it’s sleek and modern looking.  It’s a great way to create continuity in your floor color.  So, if your living room and dining room and hardwood you can select a matching tile for your entryway for a continuous flow of color.  The planks are 4″ x 24″ (and they also come in 6″ and 8″ widths, so you can also have a combo of widths.


Porcelain tile planks that look like hardwood are perfect for kitchens, bathrooms/powder rooms and entryways.  You won’t have to worry about scratches either!

    I am considering the Ceramic faux-wood tile for an upstairs full bath. my understanding is that it is not grouted and there is a possibility for water to seep between the minor seams and damage the subfloor. Should I be concerned?

      Greg – Great question. Actually, it is grouted (if it’s done properly). The grout lines are very thin and you should choose a grout color similar to the ceramic/porcelain plank. It will be just like any other tile (except it will look different).

      And, make sure the one you choose is not slippery when wet. Or if it is, make sure you have a non slip rug in there.

    I just saw some vinyl flooring today that looked like whitewashed distressed wood. It was stunning. I would completely have it in my home.

      Hi Melissa – I know, isn’t it amazing how good it looks. It’s also a great option for a restaurant. I think I’m going to recommend it to the one I went to go see today.
