If you have already heard about the tiles which imitate hardwood and are interested to learn a bit more about them, then reading this post, prepared by our tile floor installation specialist is definitely a good start!
If your intention is to deceive your family and visitors that you have installed wood, then you will not reach your goal. These tiles can never be mistaken for hardwood, they are just designed to resemble it and offer a warmer appeal of your kitchen. Although this material is visually interesting, you can easily notice that it it not real hardwood.
How are these tiles made?
They are precisely cut to the micro-inch to allow for super-close placement of tile and thin grout lines. They are durable and scratch-proof – simply ideal for homeowners with pets. They usually imitate the following wood patterns: ash, oak, ebony, walnut, maple, pecan, white birch, chestnut, beech, and redwood.
These tiles are not sized as the regular ones. They come in floorboard type sizes. The most common ones are: 12”, 6”, and 4” wide boards, all of them being 24” long.
