New! Petite, Porcelain Wood-Look Planking at Rubble Tile
When it comes to designing spaces, there’s always a place for neutral tones and simplicity that can act as a blank canvas for the rest of the design. That’s the guiding principle behind the newest collection from AlysEdwards Tile & Stone, Basic B. While AlysEdwards is known for their irreverent color names and marketing, their ceramic, glass, stone and porcelain tile designs really stand out in the market.
With Basic B, they’ve proven that simple and neutral flooring is an asset for designers. Especially when you consider the quality and sophistication AlysEdwards brings to all of their tile collections.
In AlysEdwards own words:
“Enjoying simplicity doesn’t make you lame, it means you have good taste, DUH! I mean our porcelain planks are totes adorbs and the maintenance of real wood is so last year, #NoShade. This wood-look may not be extra but it sure is versatile and petite in size.”
Wood-Look Porcelain’s Trending Rise
Wood-look porcelain has been available for a while now, but it’s in the past few years that the trend has created a demand in the design industry. One reason for the trend is that tile designers have been able to create porcelain with an incredible likeness to actual wood flooring.
Another reason for the increased popularity of wood-look porcelain is its durability. That durability means much less maintenance than natural wood, as well as less wear-and-tear. With its strength and stability, it can be installed in high traffic commercial or residential areas with confidence. Not only that, but the price point of porcelain is often budget-friendly when compared to most natural wood options.
As technologies have improved, we’ve seen an uptick in the variety of wood-look offerings out there. At Rubble Tile, our goal is to offer our clients the highest quality of gorgeous tile while staying in front of trends in the design industry. With Basic B, we’ve added another gem to our mix of wood-look porcelains.
The Basic B Collection at Rubble Tile: Neutral, Sophisticated, Petite Porcelain Planking
The Basic B collection is comprised of four refined, neutral colors in a plank size of 2.25″ x 11.75″. These planks are unique because of their petite width, which allows designers to play with different patterns and arrangements.
Some of the most classic patterns that work superbly with Basic B are offset and herringbone. In addition, AlyEdwards made the colors compatible, which allows you to blend any of the colors into one design installation. They look great in monochrome, but when it comes to these colors the more the merrier!
Like natural wood, these tiles have a high level of variation, a purposeful design choice that enhances the beauty and aesthetic accuracy of the product. They’re mostly used on floors, but this series can be used to great effect in a wall application. It’s also suitable for wet areas like showers, and can be used on countertops.
We invite you to discover the Basic B collection, now on display at the Rubble Tile showroom. To move your project forward, you can also work with one of our showroom design consultants to find bold tile selections that work perfectly in conjunction with Basic B’s neutral luxury.
