Palmetto Porcelain: Wood Look Without the Wood Worry

March 13, 2015

Porcelain has been a popular tile material for many years, but it is only recently that modern production methods have made it more accessible to the average household. There are porcelain tiles that resemble marble, some made to look like natural stone, and now, one of the hottest trends in the industry, tiles that look like real wood!

Our newest line of wood-look porcelain tiles, the Palmetto Collection, adds the warmth and character of patina with an intricate natural wood design that will add a unique look to any room. Fashioned from the latest high definition ink jet technology, these gorgeous planks have over 30 different faces with exceptional realistic wood texturing and colorations. They are pressed to provide soft pillowed edges and are ideal for contemporary, traditional, rustic, and modern designs. And, because they are made from porcelain, they are durable and low maintenance, requiring only regular cleaning with water and a damp cloth, unlike real wood. 

Palmetto is offered in four distinct colors from traditional earth tones, like Chestnut and Cognac to Smoke and Fog, which gives the appearance of time worn, gray washed wood. The MSI Design Team has done a remarkable job in replicating this popular weathered look that works well in both commercial and residential applications.

No matter what color you choose, or what look you are trying to achieve, the popular 6x36 plank size tile offers style and flexibility making it an ideal choice for walls, floors, backsplashes, or anywhere a premium surface is desired.
