Woodlooking ceramic tile


I want to install ceramic tile that looks like wood. I saw samples at Home Depot 5"x16" planks and got some from online Floorhub.com (6"x20"). Larger ones seem nicer and also less expensive, but i would have to deal with freight charges.
I suppose it is installed like a regular ceramic tile and thin grout lines 1/16 to 1/8. I am thinking to go with sanded matching grout. Did anyone used it before? Any special installtion tricks b/c tiles are planks not squares?
Thanks.

Any reason you're not just using laminate flooring? Looks like wood, no thinset, no grout, if you ever get tired of it just take it up with no problem. Tile may be cheaper (and may not be also) but the ease of installation and replacability (is that a word??..lol) of laminate would make it worth any extra money.

I want something more durable than laminate. It is for walk-out basement. Plus I have two large dogs. I also really like the glossy look of those tile, and glossy laminate is way too expensive.

Remember what 'glossy' tile will be like wet, skating rink.

Never buy from Home Depot or online.. go to a retailer. They know what is good.
