Things to remember with wood look tiles...

Wood look tiles will have a pattern repeat. Your tiler will rotate the tiles and mix them up to create enough variation for a natural look. If you're laying them yourself, remember to keep it very random so no one can see an obvious repeat. Come in and see us and we'll walk you through it.

Shorter planks are great for herringbone and geometric patterns. The longer, wider tile planks will give you the traditional wooden floorboard look. Wider options are also slightly easier to clean with less joins. But the finer planks can create some design magic. You're really unlimited with what you can achieve.

Grout colour should be a shade darker than the tones in the tile. This will create a shadow like border to give the true wooden floor board elusion.
