With the latest advancements in technology, there has been a wide array of interventions where tiles are potentially designed to mimic the real-time look of real-time natural materials. Materials such as natural stone like marble, granite and limestone, brick, wood, and much more are duplicated on tiles to achieve similar aesthetics but better durability, strength, longevity, and affordability. Apart from these, the new age tiles also offer advantages such as anti-skid, non-porous, and anti-bacterial qualities.

The wood look tiles offer extreme durability and can withstand wear and tear even in high-traffic areas. So, whether you’re looking to revamp a residential setting or commercial, the wood-look tiles don’t require regular sealing - hence, definitely make a better option over natural wood. 


Natural wood is a big no-no, especially for humid areas where the wood is subjected to expansion or contraction of the flooring. Moreover, natural wood can also not be installed in wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, or laundry rooms. On the other hand, with wood look tiles - the humidity and climate is never a concern. 

Affordability and Maintenance

The wood look tiles are definitely a more durable and cheaper version as compared to the natural wood. Generally, natural wood floors require a ton of attention, resources, and time - with often sealing and resealing required. However, all you need is a mop or a vacuum machine to clean the surface of a wood look tile. 


Natural wood is obtained from cutting and chopping trees which is great harm to humankind. On the other hand, wood-look tiles can give you a similar appearance as natural wood and since they’re composed of ceramic (widely available) - it’s a better eco-friendly tile product

Healthy Alternative

The wood look tiles have tiny pores which resist the surface from growing any bacteria, mildew, or mold. And since it’s a water and pest-resistant material - it makes a much better and healthier alternative to natural wood.
