Wood-look porcelain tile has proven to be the go-to material for home renovations and for good reason. Emulating the rustic beauty of natural hardwood, wood-look tile is not only aesthetically striking, but also has technical properties that make it an easy choice for commercial settings.
When specifying material for a commercial project, one of the most important factors is using products that fit within a budget. In comparison to natural stone and hardwood, wood-look porcelain is an affordable and cost-effective choice. Tackle large surface coverings for less with just as much visual impact with a wood-look tile.
Enjoy the look of wood in the busiest hotel lobby, a bustling restaurant and even a crowded bar with wood-look porcelain. Because of its extreme density, porcelain is resistant to the heavy stresses that come with high-traffic commercial environments such as scratches and staining. Porcelain also holds up to water and moisture remarkably well, resulting in minimal warping, cracking, or expanding – dare we say it’s the perfect material for a bikram yoga studio?
After installation, porcelain tile requires little maintenance, removing the requirement to seal or resurface. Along with its high durability, wood-look porcelain is an ease to clean, which can be swept or mopped with just water, but also withstand harsh cleaning chemicals. Present a hotel lobby with a clean and well-kept look with this preferred flooring material, all while saving time and cost with cleaning staff.
