Wood Grain

Seamless and Efficient

The entire process from product selection, to on-site estimating, to scheduling and installation was seamless and efficient. The installers always called ahead of time to update their arrival time, were friendly and helpful, and cleaned up after themselves at the end of the day. No stress; no strain on our part. Too bad we won’t need carpeting for another 10-12 years or so; my wife and I will miss these guys! Read more

Customer Service Plus!! I recently had a large floor area replaced due to a manufacturing defect. Ryan came out, saw the issue, submitted the paperwork and got the ball rolling. He never said or implied that I was at fault. The job was quickly put in the loop and started. John and Andrew worked efficiently and left a clean work area daily. They were pleasant and communicated what was happening and why. After 7 days, they were finished! But after a closer look several finishing details had been … Read more Theresa HawkinsMilwaukie

Wood grain tile—for the look of wood and durability of tile

When you want the look of a hardwood floor, but you want the easy-clean surface and long-term durability of tile, choose wood grain tile. Hardwood can be difficult to maintain, especially in high traffic areas, as it tends to scratch and dent. Tile is the answer.

Wood grain patterns printed on top of durable tile have become very popular because they mimic real hardwood floors amazingly well. Being tile, they’re less susceptible to scratching and denting than real hardwood would be.

Keep the grout lines thin to look as close to real hardwood as possible

When choosing a wood grain tile consider how closely it should resemble a real hardwood floor. After all, a real hardwood floor wouldn’t have grout lines. To keep the look as close as possible to real hardwood, keep the grout lines very narrow and use a grout color that disappears into the pattern.

Oblong wood grain tile can be set in a grid pattern, herringbone, 33% offset or even in a parquet pattern. Wood grain tiles are also available in hexagon and other unique shapes. Work with your project consultant to look at pattern samples and discuss your options.

Is the tile you’re considering embossed with a wood pattern? Can you feel the wood grain in the surface of the tile? This will enhance your hardwood look.

Consider durability, ceramic or porcelain?

When it comes to durability, check the tiles you’re considering. Are they ceramic or porcelain? Porcelain is more durable than ceramic tile, especially for floors.

Some of our customers have been amazed at how rich and warm wood grain tile can look, resembling a real hardwood floor but without the maintenance challenges.
