Wood Look Tile is Here to Stay!

There’s no denying that hardwood floors are beautiful. But maintaining them? Not so much beauty in that, especially for high-traffic commercial interiors. Wood-look porcelain tile entered the design scene more than a decade ago and quickly became popular in both commercial and residential applications. As the trend grew, so did the beauty of these tiles. Print technology got better, plank sizes increased, and wood grain textures were added, making these tiles so realistic that it is often hard to tell they are not real wood (even upon touch). Wood-looks today run the gamut from reclaimed, distressed, and weathered to elegantly traditional, exotic and even artistic interpretations. With the vast array of looks available combined with porcelain’s sustainability, durability, easy-maintenance, and health benefits (no VOCs, sanitary, mold-resistant), it’s safe to say that wood look porcelain tiles have transcended trend status and now are a mainstay of tile design.

When it comes to wood-looks, GIO’s got you covered. We’ve captured wood’s appearance in a range of tile styles that will meet your demanding specification requirements as well as complement any design style. Here’s a look at them.

Perfect for the “modern traditionalist,” our Versailles collection offers a modern spin on a centuries-old look. The three colorways are available in a 24″ x 24″ parquet look, a listello mosaic, and a generous 10″ x 60″ plank.
