Wood Look Tile
A current trend is wood look tile. After you take a look at the photos below of installations we have done, it’s easy to see why.
This flooring choice has all the benefits of tile and the look of wood. The sizing choices abound, there is 6×18, 6×24, 8×32, 5×32, 12×24, 6×30, 6×36, 9×36, 6×48, 6×60, and more. Sometimes it is incredible how much it looks like wood, we have customers tell us often that visitors of theirs will stop in and say We are currently installing an 8×45 Wood look tile in a condo in Englewood on Beach Road.
Patterns for Installation
Some of the patterns for installing include: herringbone, random staggered, 1/3 staggered, 1/2 staggered (It is shown on the tub-surround picture. Most manufacturers recommend against 1/2 staggering).
It can warm up a room creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere. This is from an installation in North Port.
It is elegant. This is actually a 12×24 on a 1/3rd stagger that has a grain that resembles wood somewhat. It still gives a feel of white-washed or light wood. This is from an installation in Rotonda.
It can be very realistic. This is a hickory like floor that gives the feel of real wood. This is from an installation in Venice.
Some wood look tile is textured making it less slippery for outdoor use. Notice the hand-scraped finish, it gives a nice texture for outdoor use. Also, notice it being used as a tile baseboard? This is from an installation in Placida.
You can use it in a shower (or a tub-surround) Wood look tile gives a “spa” like feel to your shower area, don’t you think? This was installed in Port Charlotte.
We have wood look tile that is similar to oak, maple, cherry, and much, much more! We even have some that looks like blue jean, I would encourage you to stop in and see the whole selection, here is just a sampling of the wood look tile you will find in our Englewood tile store. We service the surrounding communities of Englewood, Rotonda, Venice, North Port, Placida, and Port Charlotte. We install throughout Sarasota and Charlotte Counties.
