What Is Wood Look Tile?

Wood look tile is just what it sounds like. Tile that looks like wood.

Wood look tile is made out of either ceramic or porcelain. It’s real tile that’s made out of fired clay designed to mimic the grain, finish, plank sizes and look of hardwood flooring. Although there are some faux tiles and floating floors that also look like wood, this article is about real tile. Here are a few things you should know.

  • Some designers also call wood look tile faux wood tile or fake wood tile.
  • You install wood look tile just like any other type of tile with thinset or mortar instead of nails.
  • Wood look tile can be grouted or not depending on the style you want.
  • They come in a wide variety of sizes and designs to match the style of your home.
  • Although this article is about wood look floor tiles, you can use those same tiles on the walls.

Wood look tiles vary in quality just like any other tile. Use thicker tiles for the floors and thinner ones on the walls. Buy a good quality, thick tile if durability is a concern. The better quality tiles also look nicer too. Since the wood look is actually just a facade, how real the tiles look will vary.

Advantages Of Wood Look Tile Flooring

There are quite a few advantages with using wood look tile flooring. Here’s just a few.

  • Tile is a very durable flooring product. It performs very well with kids or pets in the house.
  • Wood look tile flooring comes in a wide variety of colors, styles and sizes which includes plank designs for a real hardwood wood floor look.
  • Tile floors work great in damp areas such as kitchens, mudrooms, bathrooms and laundry rooms.
  • You can even use wood look tile on walls. We’d recommend a thinner tile for this.
  • Tile is easier to clean that wood and you don’t have to worry about spills penetrating into the wood.
  • Some wood look tiles use grout. If you like the look, you can get the great look of hardwood floors with grout lines.
  • Tile floors have a great ROI. especially with house flips or rentals.

1. Wood Look Tile Floors Are A Good Investment

Tile flooring is generally a better value than hardwood. However, there have always been some drawbacks. Traditionally, tile flooring struggled to deliver the same warm appeal that comes from using real wood. However, with advances in new tile flooring products, it’s easy to mimic the look of wood with all the benefits that come with tile.

When shopping for hardwood flooring, you’ll notice that premium woods cost a lot more than the standard stuff. Especially if your shopping for prefinished or exotic hardwoods. But tile is less expensive to make, so you can find deals on great products for a lot less than wood.

Another benefit is that your tile’s coloring rarely affects the price tag. Wood is separated into species, size and coloring, while tile is priced more consistently. This means you probably won’t pay more for a dark stain faux wood tile than you would for a light pine. The tile is made the same, it’s just a different print.

Tile is also easier to install yourself than hardwood. Wood floors need a compressor, special nail and a lot more labor. All you need with tile is a trowel, some spacers, mortar and a tile cutter. You can buy all that at Home Depot for very little.

  • Tile floors are a great investment. Especially if your flipping a house or renting.
  • Tile ranges in price so there’s something for everyone no matter what type of house your finishing.
  • Ceramic faux wood floor tiles are cheaper.
  • Porcelain wood look tiles cost more but are more durable.
  • Tile makes a great DIY project which can really save you money.

2. Wood Look Tile Floors Are Very Durable

Tile is one of the most durable flooring materials you can buy. And it takes very little effort other than basic cleanings to keep it looking great for decades. In fact most of the time it’s the grout that looks bad over time, not the actual tiles. There are clay tiles 1000 years old still in use today around the world that still look good. No other material even comes close.

Hardwood is a beautiful and very popular flooring material. But it’s no where near the durability of tile. And hardwood has to be maintained. If you want it looking great then eventually you’ll have to refinish it. Scratches, spills, gauges and a loss of sheen are all common issues with hardwood. Eventually your hardwood floor investment will need some help.

You can and will eventually refinish hardwood. If your considering flooring options then this has to be factored into the cost of wood. However, if you choose wood look tile flooring, there’s never a need to refinish.

Tile that looks like wood is a wonderful compromise. With wood look tile flooring you can have the best of both materials. The beautiful look of wood with the durability of tile. It’s also much better if there’s a fire in the house. We often use it around a wood burning fireplace because it won’t catch fire from blowing embers. Wood is obviously much worse in terms of fire damage.

3. Tile Flooring Is Low Maintenance

Tile is super easy to clean and maintain. You won’t need anything but basic home cleaning supplies to keep your tile floors looking great. A standard tile mop and broom or or a vacuum will work fine. Many of our customers even use those little cleaning robots that pick up dirt and dust all by themselves.

Unlike hardwood flooring, wet tiles aren’t that big of a deal. Of course you should still dry the floors but you don’t have to worry about water seeping into the boards and causing odors, buckling, swelling, mold, mildew or warping. All sorts of bad things can happen to the hardwood and sub floor from water damage. However tile is sealed by grout so water just pools on the surface.

Be careful what cleaning products you use. Some cleaners may contain acids or abrasive cleaners that can damage the grout or tile finish.

We recommend sticking with simple warm water and soap with a gentle scrub brush or mop.

4. Wood Look Tile Flooring Is Versatile

If your looking for a versatile flooring then wood look tiles may be the answer. You can install tile on any floor in the house including the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry, mudroom, basement and even garage. There’s really no room, including the staircase, that you can’t use tile.

Tile is very durable, looks great and can be installed over wood sub floor or cement. There’s really no floor in the home where you can’t use it.

You will, however, need to have a solid, level base to install it on. Tile is very stiff once installed. If there is any movement in the subfloor you could end up with cracked or loose tiles. It’s also important to properly seal the grout which helps prevent water from penetrating tiny cracks and getting to the subfloor.

If you’re looking for a flooring material that can be used throughout the home for a seamless look then consider using tile.

Pro Tip: If you plan on using the same tile throughout the home then buy it all at once, not a room at a time. Wood look tile is basically a print on the surface of the tile that looks like wood. The wood look is just for show. So if you buy from multiple tile batches there’s a chance some variations in color can occur.

5. Lots Of Variety

Wood look tile is available in a wide variety of sizes, styles, colors and designs. Not only can you buy a wood tile that looks just like the species of hardwood you want, but you can also customize the color. Many tile manufacturers offer the same grain in multiple colors so you’ll have plenty of options.

There is a wide selection of color tones and textures available that can fit your style. You can even get tiles that look like weathered or aged wood if that’s the look you want. Pretty much anything you can find in real wood you can also get with tile.

Most tiles are sold in multiple widths and lengths. Tiles come in just about any size you can buy real wood in ranging from very thin to wide plank. And they make the same finish in multiple sizes so you can mix and match thin, medium and wide thicknesses on the same floor. Just like you can with hardwood.

6. Tile Is Great For Allergens

Wood look tile flooring is great for anyone with allergies. Tile doesn’t collect allergens and it’s easy to keep clean. Also the method of cleaning is better for allergies. When you clean your floor with a damp mop dust won’t get kicked up into the air like it does when sweeping.

Even though the subfloor and grout can still grow mold, it’s very rare if you keep the floors dry. And if you seal the grout then it gets even harder. It would take a lot of water sitting on the tiles for a very long time to penetrate small cracks enough to wet the subfloor. And this would have to continue for long periods of time, not just one spill. We see mold growth under the tiles in a shower, but hardly ever, under a kitchen or living room floor.

As with any tile, grouting properly is very important because it seals the tiles and protects against water. Wood look tiles are no different than any other tile other than they look like wood.

7. Tile Flooring Is Great For Pets

My brother recently bought a new house with prefinished hardwood floors throughout. Within a year they were badly scratched by the dogs and needed replacing. This wouldn’t have happened if the builder installed wood like tile.

Tile is a smart choice if you have pets. It’s very dense, won’t scratch from claws and can’t be gnawed at. I’ve seen hardwood flooring chewed to bits by dogs and used as a scratching post by cats. Not to mention when pets have an accident in the house. That’s the last thing you want absorbing into your floors.

Pro Tip: If you have pets that shed then choose a color that doesn’t show every hair. Otherwise you’ll be sweeping the floors all day when that time of the year comes round.

8. Wood Look Tile Floors Are Eco Friendly

Tile floors are an Eco friendly flooring materials. They don’t contain harmful chemicals and are made from natural, recyclable materials.

Tile can be ground up and reused for all sorts of other purposes including making new tiles. If you buy a floor tile made from clay it’s totally biodegradable.

9. Tile Floors Are More Energy Efficient

You may not realize this but tile is more energy efficient than hardwood. This is mainly due to how it absorbs and stores heat in the winter and stays cool in summer.

In winter, open the blinds and let the sun in. Heat will absorb into the tile and help keep the house warm. With enough sunlight you can comfortably walk around barefoot even in the coldest months.

In summer, tile floors stay much cooler than hardwood. Close the blinds so heat doesn’t get absorbed and the tiles actually help cool the home. This is why in hot climates they use a lot of tile and masonry building products. They deal with heat much better than wood.

Disadvantages Of Wood look Tile Floors

While there are definitely a lot more benefits to using wood look tile floors than drawbacks, they still have a few work discussing.

1. Installing Wood Look Tile Floors

Tile makes a great DIY project but only if you know what your doing. Depending on the tile your installing and the pattern, a tile floor could be very easy to lay or extremely difficult.

If your doing it yourself make sure the subfloor is very strong, stiff and screwed down properly. One of the biggest problems we find with tile floor repair is a subfloor that wasn’t built properly. We recommend adding an additional layer of concrete board on top of the subfloor, under the tile. It adds more strength and stiffness to the floor. A strong base is essential for long lasting tile.

With wood look tile it can be harder to spot hairline cracks in the tile if they’re running with the grain. Look at each tile carefully because eventually those tiny hairline cracks could open up.

Wood look tile can be tricky to lay out in a nice design. If your installing a pattern with a variety of sizes then take your time. it’s not the same as using tiles that are all the same. If there’s a pattern to follow then things get harder. Running off your design will cause serious problems.

Measure and chalk some lines. before we lay any tiles the whole is measured and all the tiles are laid out and cut. Once that’s all done we start installing. A common problem we see with amateur DIY work is that they skip the beginning steps and go right to laying tile.

When in doubt, let a pro take care of it for you.

2. Tile Floors Are Cold

This can be a good thing or a bad thing. But it’s a fact that tile feels colder than wood does.

If you live in Arizona then you’ll probably appreciate a cool floor to walk around on. However, in Alaska I’m sure a warmer floor would be nice.

The good news is that there are options. Tile flooring is great when paired with radiant floor heating systems. Both hot water and electric mats work great. Any time you want a warmer floor just flick a switch and they heat right up.

Another option is using area rugs. They’ll keep your feet warm no matter how cold it gets.

3. Tile Floors Are Harder

Tiles need a really stiff, hard floor. That’s one of the reasons why they’re so popular for use on top of concrete slabs. Any flexing in the subfloor can crack tiles of cause them to pop up. The very first thing we do in any tile job is to check the entire subfloor for flexing or soft spots. And we use an additional concrete board over top the plywood.

For most people this isn’t an issue. But if you like a softer floor then wood is a better option. There’s no way to install tile with any give. Although you could always use an area rug or two.

They also make mats that go next to a sink. If it’s uncomfortable for you to stand in one place on tile for a while then consider adding one.

4. Some Tile Floors Can Be Slippery

Tile floors are slippery. It’s a common belief that’s mostly associated with older, flat smooth surfaced tile. However, wood look tile flooring is offered with an actual textured grain so this isn’t an issue.

While it’s true, some tile floors can be slippery, there are plenty of tile options that aren’t. Or at least they’re no more slippery than hardwood.

Porcelain Vs. Ceramic Wood Look Tile Flooring

The biggest difference between porcelain and ceramic wood look tile flooring is the price.

  • Ceramic tile it the cheaper of the two. It’s cost ranges from around $2-$8 per square foot, depending on quality.
  • Porcelain tile costs more. It’s cost ranges between $4-12 per square foot, on average and also depending on quality.

Another big factor to consider is durability. On average, ceramic tile isn’t as durable as porcelain when you compare equal quality tiles. For example, a top of the line ceramic tile can be more durable than a cheap porcelain. However it’s not even close to a top of the line porcelain.

If your installing wood look tile flooring in damp areas like a kitchen, mudroom or bathroom, porcelain is the better choice. Porcelain is denser and therefore better at repelling water. And because porcelain is baked at higher temperatures, it’s harder and less likely to crack. Although keep in mind that a tile can only due so much. Most water issues are due to grout issues and not the tiles so make sure, no matter what tile you choose, that they’re properly grouted and sealed.

Porcelain tiles are so durable and water resistant you can even install them in semi outdoor areas like a sunroom or covered patio.

Types Of Porcelain Floor Tiles

It’s worth mentioning that there are two common types of porcelain floor tiles you can choose from. Through body and color body.

  • Through body tile has it’s color and pattern run through the entire tile. The looks aren’t just printed on the surface. If you accidentally chip the tile’s surface, it’ll be less noticeable since color is all the way through the tile.
  • Color body porcelain only has color on the surface. A thin top layer with a baked on coating gives the tile it’s good looks. If this outer layer is damaged, you’ll notice the inside color is different.

When choosing between ceramic and porcelain floor tiles, consider how and where they will be used. It may be worth paying more money for porcelain but in most cases the cheaper option will be fine. They both look more or less the same so if you don’t need the extra durability then why pay all that additional money.

Wood Look Tile Flooring Quality

Density is one of the top things you should look at when choosing a tile flooring. But how do you tell if a tile is dense? Simple, it’s heavier. If you hold two tiles of the same size and thickness, the denser tile will be heavier. In some cases. with high end to quality tiles, the difference is huge. What causes this added density is the materials used to actually make the tile and the firing process. This has nothing to do with look however, you can pick a great quality tile that’s really ugly. Density is just one concern of many.

You should make sure your tile is certified and inspected for quality. Most tile importers will have this information available if you ask.

When shopping for tile, be sure to research your tile’s manufacturer. Larger companies often adhere to higher standards. We tend to import a lot of our tile rather than buy through big box retailers. You can get much better tile this way although it’s more money. Most of the best tile comes from Italy or other European countries.

If you can, try to buy a rectified tile. They’re checked for warping and unevenness. The edges of rectified tiles are mechanically finished to allow for tighter grout lines and a more refined look.

Last but not least is appearance. High quality tile manufacturers make some of the most beautiful tiles in the world. Not just by design but also the general appearance and finish of the tile. You’ll know a poorly made cheap tile when you see one. High resolution images are used to mimic the natural wood grain and color variations found in real wood. Tiles with sharp, clear images are a sign of good quality.

Tile Rating Chart

There is a rating chart designed to gauge a tile’s variation level. The ratings run from V0 to V4. The higher the number, the more variation you can expect. For example, tile with a lot of variation will have a grade of V4. This can be good or bad depending on the look your going for.

What Does Wood Look Tile Flooring Cost?

The cost of wood look tile fluctuates per square foot according to it’s quality, style, design, material and durability.

  • High quality porcelain wood look tiles tiles cost an average of $4 -$12 per square foot. However customized porcelain can easily cost over $20 per square foot.
  • Ceramic wood look tiles typically range from $2-$8 per square foot.

You can find wood look tile flooring for less at retail stores. However, these tiles tend to be thinner and of a low quality with a cheap looking print.

Pro Tip: If you want top quality flooring tile for less than look for closeouts and sales. They’re quite common in the tile industry. Especially if you don’t need that much.

Certain times of the year you can find great deals on quality flooring. When manufacturers and importers discontinue product they offer big discounts to get rid of old inventory. If you’re lucky enough to find a good deal then take it. However there is some risk if they don’t have much or you end up needing more half way through a job.

Big Box Retailers

If you’re looking for in stock wood grain tile then stop by your local home improvement store. Lowes and Home Depot both carry wood look tiles in store and online by special order. It’s a very popular tile design so it’s not hard to find. The great thing about big retailers is that they often have sales, offer discounts of bulk orders and even have financing. For imported tile you’ll have to visit a tile shop. In addition to popular brands big stores have, importers will offer more exotic and higher end tiles.

If you know the exact tile you want, try buying online.Just like with anything else online shopping is great for getting good deals. Although S&H can be expensive.

Pro Tip: Pictures aren’t as good as having a real sample. If you find a tile you like in a photo you shouldn’t buy it without seeing it for real. You can’t feel texture or close up details from a wide shot photo.

Pro Tip: Buy between 15-20% more tile than what you need. Extra tile accounts for waste from cuts and damaged tile. You should save extra tilein case of damage just in case they discontinue the product.

How Much Does Wood Look Tile Cost To Install?

The cost to install wood look tile flooring varies based on a few factors. 

  • Size of the job matters quite a bit. The bigger the job the less it costs per square foot.
  • Layout is also a big factor. An open 400 sq. ft. room would cost less to tile than the same room with angles or things in the way that create more cuts.
  • Tile pattern. A basic tile pattern will be less to install than something elaborate with multiple sized tiles and an inlay.  
  • Inlays. Any additional details, special requirement or inlays all cost more money.
  • Small rooms. A small tile job is priced differently because if you estimate based on square footage you’ll get crushed. Most small bathroom are less than 100 sq. ft. but take a long time because of how cramped it is and all the cuts.
  • Demo is always extra.

Tile floors should always be installed over cement board or other sub floor material. We never lay tile on plywood. The cost of this additional layer is priced separately based on the material you but.

Your plywood subfloor needs to be in good condition too even if your adding a cement board layer. If the plywood has problems then you should fix them before screwing down the cement board. This whole process takes time and costs money.With new construction it shouldn’t be a problem but it’s not uncommon with remodeling work.

Make sure before you install tile or cement board that the plywood is moisture free. Locking in water can cause mold.

Don’t forget the grout lines. Make sure you choose a grout thickness before you start laying tile.

In general we charge around $14 per sq. ft. and up for tile installation. But every job is different.

How To Maintain Wood Look Tile Floors

Wood look tile flooring is easy to clean and maintain.

  • Because of how durable flooring tile is you can use most cleaners safely. We do recommend you don’t use cleaners that are too harsh. Some contain acids that can damage the finish. Make sure the tile cleaner states for use on porcelain or ceramic tiles.
  • Use a broom or vacuum for everyday cleaning.
  • Cleaning bots work great on tile floors.
  • Damp mops are another great choice. Especially if you have allergies as they’ll prevent allergens from circulating in the air.
  • Steam mops or microfiber are some other great cleaning options.
  • Seal your tiles and grout when new and then again as recommended. It’ll help protect against spills and stains.

In general we recommend simple soap and warm water with a gentle brush if you have to scrub the grout lines. Basic, everyday common house cleaning methods are more than enough. In our experience expensive store bought cleaners aren’t worth it unless you have some badly stained grout.

Upkeep and prevention are the two best ways to keep tile floors looking great. If something spills clean it up as soon as you can. If you do that and have a good quality tile with a strong sub floor you’ll be fine for decades.
