Trends come and go.  I can still remember my first home and the pink bathroom tile, Formica backsplash, and let’s not forgot avocado green appliances.  One trend that has been gaining popularity from new construction to remodels is porcelain tile wood-look floors. If you’re leaning towards engineered wood floors, choose porcelain tile.  It’s less expensive and wears as well or better than wood.

There are several reasons why we think porcelain floors are a good choice and will have staying power…

Porcelain wood -look floor tiles actually look like wood. Regardless of your choice, these large planks look like the real thing.  No matter if you want the look of a traditional dark stained walnut or weathered wood floor, porcelain wood tiles can mimic the same look.

These tiles are cost effective.  Wood floors are expensive and take a huge chunk out of any remodel, renovation or new home build.  Wood look tile provides a fantastic look at a fraction of the cost.

And finally the choices are limitless.  Technology has revolutionized the industry and with digital imaging almost any look of wood can be recreated.

We personally love the idea of getting the look of wood without the upkeep.  It is also great in an open floor concept kitchen and great room.  You have no transitions and you never have to worry about water damage from kitchen leaks.  This South Tampa builder believes that this is one trend that will be around for some time.
