One of the most important things when choosing tile is the variation. Some tiles vary more than others. Some tiles vary subtly and others are more extreme. And choosing the right tile for your home is much easier when take the variations in the tile itself when deciding. One of the ways we try to help in that regard is by putting together displays with the tile and grouted to help in the decision process. Another way we do this is by installing a number of tiles on the showroom floor, in different patterns to help you find the right tile for you and your home. We also have a number of brochures and literature for you to look at and help you decide as well samples you can take home to see how it will look in your home and your lighting.

Even when you are choosing a tile with minimal to no variation you can help offset that with various patterns and designs. One of the most common ways to hide minimal and no variation within the tile is to put a medallion or decorative piece every so often. This helps by drawing the eye to different spots or focal points within your home. Helping offset the lack of variation within the tile itself. As well as drawing attention to areas of your house that you want to highlight.

For many of the people who are looking at wood looking tile, the most important part is that there floor resembles wood. And for that to happen variation is key. With many of the wood looking tiles we are showing the factories have made that their goal. Using high definition and digital printing the images are crisper and cleaner. And with many of the tiles they are varying 70 feet or more before they are repeating. And in some cases even up to 180 feet. With that variation the appearance of these wood looking tiles are more in align with the natural wood floors. But with the durability and strength of tile to stand up to some of the most extreme tests you can perform.

One of the more interesting things that Florida Tile did with this line is they created a mosaic with the Kerala series taking the wood look and forming a 12×12 basket weave mosaic that would be perfect in a number of different settings from bathrooms and beyond. It also adds new dimensions and giving the entire look a different feel and texture that is not typical of your standard wood looking tile.
