Favorite Things - Porcelain Wood

Like most people, I love the look of wood floors. But the reality is that I live with 2 large and active dogs, whose nails are brutal. I also do not particularly love "patina". While somethings look better with time and age, I just don't like scratched wood - on flooring, furniture, or cabinetry. It's the perfectionist in me...

So Porcelain "wood" is a wonderful solution if you're like me and love the warmth and beauty of wood flooring, but crave more durability. It is  a porcelain tile made to look like wood and manufactured into planks to mimic wood. It's the look of wood with the scratch, stain and moisture resistance of tile!
These products are popping up with different manufacturers, but Porcelanosa is one of my favorites. A selection of their WoodTec Products are highlighted below. Enjoy!

 Would you have known those are tile if I hadn't told you?  A beautiful replication, don't you think? Would you use these in your home?

We had a rep come in & do a presentation on this product. It looks great! You don't have the worries about scratches like you said. It's very durable and looks great. I really like that combo!
