An innovative wood-effect tile is a fine thing, adding another twist on this classic building material, and Bestile has a whole raft of unusual takes on wood-looks. Among their standard designs or natural looking planks are a few collections taking the design to another level.
A hexagonal wood-effect tile with rich veining in a range of eight shades – five natural, spanning light and dark, greys and yellows, and three colours. The red, blue, and green (Siena, Ocean, and Aguamarina) tiles don’t stray much from the natural colour palette, but offer enough of an alternative look to spark intrigue. The porcelain range comes in a 258 by 290mm format.
The variation of natural wood and the implementation of colour continues with Coleur. These plank format tiles take on the appearance of aged and worn wood with faded paint detail in blues and reds. There is a rough, rugged appearance to the tiles and the chipped paint makes them highly characterful. They come in three different sizes (170 by 520mm, 150 by 900mm, and 200 by 1,200mm) and a random selection of patterns.
Continuing the aged theme is Legno Blanco. This individual plank delights in the imperfection of chipped paint. The simple white on wood appearance has both a nautical and a rustic appearance and the pattern variety enables a well-loved look for interiors. The porcelain planks are offered in two formats (150 by 900mm, and 200 by 1,200mm).
The final innovative collection to feature here is Worrys. Predominantly focused on natural wood-look planks, the one decor tile has a special appeal. Utilised alongside the five natural colours, this vibrant pop of turquoise is the perfect addition. Designed with a dripping paint effect, the worn look has an almost mossy appearance, imitating nature with additional vibrancy. These pieces are also available in two formats (150 by 900mm and 200 by 1,200mm).
