Porcelain Wood Tile Question


Hello,

I am getting ready to tile my bathroom (wet room actually) with porcelain wood tiles. I don't know much about tiling a wall with this material. Are there any things I need to be aware of using this kind of tile in a bathroom? My backer board and substrate will be Schluter Kerdi.

Thanks in advance.

Triple check the floor for level if it is out, start the wall at the lowest spot so you can trim tile and maintain level.

I did this; If you want it to resemble actual wood, use the smallest possible spacers for thinner grout lines and select a grout color that is closely matched to the tile color.

Re: Porcelain Wood Tile Question


Porcelain Wood tiles have come so far that they are starting to mimic the real thing with the 3D printing they offer. A tighter grout joint and also a grout that closely matches will be a great start.
