the best porcelain tile that looks like birch woodOctober 30, 2018
Real birch wood floors have been making a comeback throughout interior design circles, and it’s easy to see why! After all, natural birch is strong and has an interesting grain that adds an earthy texture to any room. Unfortunately, real birch floors are just not recommended for damp areas like kitchens, bathrooms, and laundries. The good news is that you can still get the look of birch wood—in easy-to-care-for porcelain tile flooring.
Real birch naturally comes in a variety of colors, from natural pale beiges and yellows to more striking gold and red tones. Our porcelain flooring collections include five of the most popular birch wood looks in budget-friendly porcelain tile. Due to its durability and price point, porcelain has become one of the most popular tile flooring for the bathroom in recent years. Besides that, it comes in a wide range of colors, textures, dimensions, and patterns, so you’re sure to find a porcelain tile that suits your aesthetic perfectly. Ready to take a look? Here are some of our most beautiful birch wood look porcelain tiles.
Sometimes modern spaces can feel a tad austere or minimalistic. The best way to add some character is with an element that has a natural texture or pattern.

Here, the porcelain tile is laid on both the floor and the wall. And, an interesting choice was made in the installation—the tile on the wall was laid perpendicular to the layout on the floor. The result is a room that looks expansive any way you look!
