The Black Forest wood-look porcelain tile collection from Interceramic is a simple yet elegant flooring option for those who desire authentic hardwood looks in the form of a durable, easy-to-clean surface. Projecting the natural grain patterns found in the oak and hickory species, Interceramic Black Forest comes in two dimensions; choose between 7.5" x 47" or extra-wide 11.5" x 47" porcelain tile planks. As these tiles are rectified just like most other wood-look tiles, Black Forest can be installed with extremely narrow grout lines, enhancing the realism of your floor. At first glance, this Interceramic flooring collection is nearly indistinguishable from real wood, giving you the hardwood looks that you've always wanted without the maintenance hassles of the real thing harvested from trees in the forest. Resistant to chemicals, freeze/thaw cycling, and equipped with a water absorption rate of less than 0.5 percent, Black Forest can be used anywhere indoors as well as some outdoor applications, as the elements will not damage the tile under normal conditions. These tiles surpass the ANSI standards for porcelain, with an impressive breaking strength of 450 pounds, ensuring that these beautiful wood-look floors can hold up in high-traffic areas without experiencing any undue stress.
Interceramic Black Forest comes in two bold colors that will liven up any home décor, ranging from the traditional to the contemporary. Mix and match tile sizes, or if you're feeling really adventurous you can opt for a herringbone pattern that has the ability to visually increase the depth of smaller rooms. For a classic, more traditional feel, we recommend the Kandel Brown option, a mid-tone brown reminiscent of authentic oak hardwood replete with knotting patterns and streaking. Blauen Black works better in modern design settings, as its deep charcoal greys can provide either a stark contrast with lightly colored furnishings or complement a minimalistic, utilitarian ambience with an edge.
