Warm up with “wood.” Porcelain tiles that look convincingly like wooden planks are gaining in popularity, and it’s easy to see why. Using real wood can be risky in bathrooms, as the moisture can cause damage. Wood-effect floor tiles offer the warmth and good looks of wood while being practical, water-resistant and sturdy.
