Lovely Tiles Blend Durability of Ceramic and Beauty of Wood
Modern manufacturing methods have made it possible for us to have all kinds of fascinating materials in our homes. Italian company Tagina makes a line of ceramic tiles that look just like natural and metallic woods.
The ceramic tiles, known collectively as Lignite, are imprinted with realistic wood grain. Each tile looks like a unique piece of natural material.
The coloring of the tiles ranges from natural, variegated wood hues to striking, shiny grey that looks like a metal/wood hybrid.
While it may seem a little strange to disguise ceramic tiles as wood ones, there is a simple and intelligent reason behind these tiles. Ceramic is very tough and can stand up to high traffic in a way that real wood can’t.
This durability means that Lignite tiles are perfect for businesses and other high-traffic areas where the look of wood will add so much but real wood flooring just isn’t practical.
