Are you the quiet one when your friends talk about their next wood-tile project? Let’s lay those fears to rest. Here are five things you’re worried about that you shouldn’t be. MYTH #1 Grout Joints Make Wood-Grain Tile Look Unauthentic Look for wood-grain tile that has rectified edges. That means that the edges of each individual tile have been mechanically finished so that they are precise and consistent. That means that you can put the tiles closer together with a minimal grout joint—as little as 3/16 of an inch (when installed in a brick-joint pattern). That’s close enough together that you can barely tell a natural wood floor from a wood-look tile floor.MYTH #2 Wood-Look Tile Floors Are Cold Tile flooring does maintain a moderate temperature, but that doesn’t mean it has to be cold. Wood-look porcelain tile is very well suited to radiant subfloor heating. There are several types of subfloor heating and tile can be placed directly on top of it for a warm and inviting floor.

MYTH #3 Wood-Grain Tile Looks Fake The journey of wood-grain tile has been rapid and quality improves with each new product. Digital imaging and high-tech manufacturing introduces realistic textures and visuals that you sometimes can’t tell apart from wood without taking a closer look. Tile visuals don’t simply repeat the same grains and knots over and over again. Several images are used to create tiles with lots of diversity for an authentic looking floor. MYTH #4 Long Wood-Grain Tile Planks Warp Any tile over 15 inches can present a challenge with lippage and warping. However, if the tile is installed correctly, it shouldn’t be a problem. Plank tile is available in sizes ranging from 24–42 inches long and 6–8 inches wide. Tiles should be staggered in a brick-joint pattern with no more than 33% overlap. A well-prepared subfloor and skilled installation can also help with warping and lippage. Find an NTCA or CTEF certified installer for best results.

Most homeowners love a touch of warmth in rooms like bathrooms and kitchens. I can always hear people asking whether wood is an appropriate material to use in those moisture-prone areas. Unfortunately, wood and water don’t mix. In fact, wet areas are where faux wood tile comes into play, as tiles have a higher resistance to water.
