A Wood Look for Every Design Vision

Posted by Barbara Haaksma on Jun 28, 2018 12:42:17 PM

A growing trend with staying power, wood-look porcelain and ceramic tile offer highly realistic and innovative designs for today’s spaces. Capitalizing on tile’s functionality in kitchen and bath spaces, wood-look tile can go where true wood cannot hold up — blending beauty and practicality in one application. 

Emser Tile looks beyond functionality with our latest wood-look introductions to achieve design visions. With hues ranging from rich to contemporary, explore three series creating a lasting impression across three unique environments.

Classic coloring with Mokuzai

Drawing from the natural beauty of oak, tile can emulate true wood even in more established settings. Japanese for ‘wood,’ Mokuzai’s old world surface texture of mineral streaks and knots achieve the rich, sophisticated aesthetic that wood is traditionally known for. Consider enhancing the collection’s classic colors with an intriguing installation pattern, like herringbone.

Sleek simplicity with Porch

For the modern eye, rich, gradated wood tones invite unexpected color variation across floors. Capitalizing on alternating tile direction, this design-forward installation enhances the kitchen’s matte black finishes. True to Porch’s enhanced visual depth, this glazed porcelain collection seamlessly ties together the space with an understated satin finish.

Outdoor ambiance with Xtra

Wood-look installations are, at their core, foundational in nature. Tiberwood, for example, instills an innate sense of beauty with its natural simplicity. With the Xtra collection, offering a matte finish and high-definition variations, tile planks now provide a compelling new approach to outdoor surfacing — durability without sacrificing design.
