wood look tile in Ahwatukee

Wood-Look Porcelain Tile

Recent innovations have produced porcelain tile styles that mimic the look of hardwood. The tiles are similar in size and shape to hardwood planks, and they have colors and patterns that replicate the stain and grain of wood. Wood-look tile is an exciting new trend because it allows homeowners to have the beauty of hardwood with the durability and moisture resistance of tile.

Gray hardwood floors in Ahwatukee

Gray Hardwood

For a truly contemporary look, consider gray-stained hardwood floors. Some styles have just a touch of gray in their coloring, while others appear to be gray all the way through. This flooring is ideal for clean, contemporary homes, and it’s also a great choice if you prefer a cooler color palette rather than traditional warm wood tones. Plus, you can find gray hardwood flooring in a variety of wood species.


Terracotta Tile

Terracotta tile isn’t exactly new, but it is actually an older flooring style that is becoming trendy again. If you’re looking for tile with a warm, rustic, somewhat Mediterranean look, terracotta is the perfect choice. It’s made from red-brown clay and is available in both unfinished and glazed styles. Terracotta tile is durable but also porous, so you’ll need to take special care when cleaning it.

If you’d like to incorporate one of these flooring trends in your own Ahwatukee home, then call Floor Coverings International Chandler-Gilbert and schedule a free consultation. We serve homeowners throughout the Chandler and Ahwatukee Foothills areas.
