We all love the look of hardwood flooring, but most contractors say it has no place in a moist bathroom. The next best thing may be faux hardwood porcelain tile.
"The tile industry has gotten really creative at manufacturing tiles out of one material to look like another material," says Christine Jurs, owner of The Advance Design Studio in Gilberts, Ill. "A perfect example is porcelain tile made to look like real hardwood. It looks fabulous."
Available in 2-, 3- and 4-inch planks, the tile is much easier to care for than real wood. And porcelain's natural resistance to moisture makes it an appropriate material for bath applications.
