Ceramic and porcelain tiles can be manufactured to look like wood floors. The wooden look is achievable with standard square tiles or available in plank form for a more authentic resemblance.
When using plank style tile, it is important to minimize grout lines to ensure a seamless look more parallel to natural wood. This type of tile flooring has the smooth finish of porcelain and ceramic, while mimicking the actual depth and texture of wood grain.
Ceramic and porcelain tile flooring with a wood-like appearance is available for use both indoors and outdoors. Wood-like tiles are often integrated on countertops and used along walls as well.
