MS International Country River flooring showcases the natural graining, streaks, knotholes, and time-worn aesthetics of natural wood in a durable tile format suitable for installation nearly anywhere. As hardwood sometimes buckles, cups, and warps, it’s not the greatest material to put in areas with high moisture content. With Country River tile flooring, you can bring the beauty of hardwood to your home without the maintenance hassles associated with the raw material. Resistant to freeze/thaw cycling thanks to its water absorption rate of less than 0.5 percent, these wood-look tile planks can be utilized even in outdoor applications. Since porcelain is packed more densely and fired in a kiln at high temperatures, the resulting product is much sturdier than standard ceramic tile. Offered in 6” x 36” and 8” x 48” dimensions, this MS International flooring collection’s four colors will fit your specific design needs, especially if you have rustic décor in mind.
Country River’s colors give off the look of classic barnwood with softer, dulled subtle shades. The darkest offered is Bark, a lovely mix of mid-tone browns and charcoal great for home offices, studies, and dens where a sense of seclusion is desired. The lighter beige-grey blends found in Mist and Stone pair nicely with black or mahogany furnishings in kitchens, living rooms, front rooms, and foyers. The dusty brownish greys of Moss are very popular with designers who want to stick with a traditional, shabby-chic look.
For greater color variation for your floor, consider mixing and matching colors. This will give you an overall rustic look with a slight modern twist. Herringbone patterns are also gaining popularity, and using the 8” x 48” planks can enhance spatial depth in smaller rooms. In addition to floors, Country River can be used for wall accents, backsplashes, and countertops.
