Accenting your Wood Looking Tile

We have been working tirelessly with our customers for awhile now with how do you accent your wood looking tile. Not just doing a pattern like a herringbone or off setting the wood, but using a design or accent like we have done with other tiles before. Some of our customers were looking for the old wood working designs that they have seen in older homes with real wood floors. They did not want to use marble and granite to accent their homes but the variation of wood grains and colors instead. Something to compliment and accent their choice of flooring instead of removing the illusion of a wood looking floor.

We tried using wood looking material from all of the factories that we deal with and came up with a few that are the right thickness together as well as the right color combinations. The overall effect when they are done gives even our classic medallions a new feel using wood looking tile.

The wood grain that is these accents helps draw your eye to them as well as giving the depth and contour that one expects from wood. Further adding to the illusion of this being a true wood floor instead of it being a tile that looks like wood. But come on in and see for yourself if you need further convincing.

Wood Looking Tile with Stairs in Mind

Lately everyone who seems to be looking for wood looks in tile seems to be doing at least one set of stairs. With Wood Looking tile if you are in search of making the tile look as realistic as possible and you do not want to make it look tacky or to go looking for some wood trim to try and match with your wood looking tile you need bullnose. A surface edge bullnose gives you a nice clean look that matches your tile and gives you a nice rounded edge that is simply perfect when you are going up your stairs. And with Florida Tile one of the benefits is that they make a bullnose with their wood looks. Making them in either a 3×24 or a 4×24 inch piece depending on the series you are looking at.

Now as you may go around town you will find that not all wood looks or other tiles come with a bullnose but Florida Tile makes a bullnose with all of their tiles and since they are based out of Louisville, Kentucky, worst case scenerio we can order it and have it within 7 days. In our minds at Designer Tile Plus this is wonderful becasue we are no longer trying to match or coordinate wood looking tiles with something else to go up stairs at all. Now all our customers have to do is pick the wood look they like and if it’s Florida Tile we use the bullnose that comes with it and go up the stairs.
