For years now Italian tile factories have been working hard on perfecting tiles that look and feel like wood. With the ever progressing methods of technology and the ability of producing porcelain to emulate any type of natural material such as stone, slate and marble, it was only a matter of time before tile manufacturers perfected porcelain that looked and felt like real wood to satisfy the discerning end customer.
This man-made wood effect covering comes in a broad spectrum of colours and finishes, mimicking any type of wood from old painted floorboards to all types of soft and hard wood floors. With their soft hues and natural feel, they can be used on both walls and floors in kitchens, living areas, studies, hallways, bathrooms, shower areas and wet rooms.
