Ceramic Tile that looks like Hard Wood floor


Thank you everyone for your input on the wood versus wood like tile. We decided after finding a reasonably priced source that included expert install to go with an engineered hardwood floor. Made by Anderson and hand hued look with 5 inch boards. I love the look and can't wait to get it in. I really was not looking forward to more tile in my house as 3/4 of it was tile already and we have to wear shoes or sandals if we stand on the stone for any length of time. I just did not want to deal with carpet in the young kids rooms again.

The floor will be glued to a concrete slab and look great. I am going to ask about low VOC after a suggestion from another board posted message. The fellow who sold me this said he is putting it into his house, and he is my new neighbor, to replace a cheap laminate he had from the former owner.

BTW, don't waste your time calling 1-800 Empire. The fellow was really nice, but very high price even after so called discounts.

Hi, I am in the dilemma of choosing between tile and wood floor too.
Could you send me the pictures? I live in Miami and don't know where to shop the wood like tile. Any advice is appreciated! My email is yishen.chien@gmail.com

Thanks a lot!

I just installed some Provenza porcelain tile that looks like wood. I don't remember the exact size but it comes in planks about 23"x5-1/2".

I went with the Lignes style and the Karu color (very dark brown). They offer other colors. heres a link

I used 1/16" grout spacing and i'm going to grout with a charcoal colors sandless grout.

What's the brand name and color name on the tiles in those pics? They look exactly like the samples of Kaska woodgrain tiles we're deciding between. It looks like 2 different colors in those pics, am I correct in that assessment (currently have my eyes dilated from the optometrist)?

thanks,
b

How will this product hold up to large dogs? We have real wood now and the dogs leave claw marks all over it. Looking for something new.

porcelain plank tile will hold up excellent with dogs as where a real wood, vinyl or cheap looking laminate wont.

we are replacing a real wood job in a month that was damaged by dogs and moisture.

We are currently in the debate of porcelain vs wood. My husband says porcelain but I am not so sure. Because it is a vacation house in the mountains, hence snow and rain, and will likely be a weekend rental, he thinks porcelain will be the better choice. I am thinking resale value and wood grain porcelain being a trend that is dismissed as cheap and cheesy. Thoughts from others?
