Jodi Marks: You know, I love the look of a hardwood floor, but honestly I love the durability of a porcelain tile. And look what Marazzi has done. They have married the two surfaces by creating a porcelain tile that mimics the look of a hand-scraped hardwood floor.
And this is fantastic. This is part of their Montagna collection. And you can see they’ve got a couple of different options here. This is the Gunstock option and then of course this is the natural option.
But I love this because it comes in 6×24-inch planks. And look along the back, you’ve got your porcelain tile here, so it means it’s easy installation.
What I love best about it is the maintenance on this, because you’re not going to get the expansion and the contraction that you would get with a hardwood plank. And, also, there’s no sanding or having to refinish this. All you got to do is just take a damp mop and clean it. So it’s very durable.
So if you’re in the market for something that looks like a hardwood floor, but you want the durability and stability of a porcelain tile, look no further than this because this is great for high traffic areas. You can also put it on floors, walls, and even countertops, they say.
