Strie Tile

I have liked the look of this tile for a while now but have not had a chance to use it yet.  I would love to hear from you if you have!  Also think I like the wood plank look too....I think.....thoughts?

Hope someone has used it-- it's what I'm considering for our kitchen-- my fave is the bottom left sample.

We put it in two of our bathrooms. We love it! It's been over three years, and it looks flawless. The only hitch is since the tiles are long, you need a flat floor. While installing it, it's easier for it to be higher on one side than the other if your floor varies in height. We have a couple of spits where it does this, but it doesn't bother us. We still love it.

What is this tile called? I really like the look.

Ooohhh!! I love that. We are going to redo the floors in our kitchen, but I've been puzzled on what to put in since that room is adjacent to our dining room that had 200 year old wood floors. This is perfect!

I've used the 'wood planks' for myself and a client. Couldn't be happier! Great for high traffic areas and kitchens since it won't ruin if you have a water leak. Here's a peek at my porch: http://makethemwonderblog.blogspot.com/2011/11/tile-that-looks-like-wood.html

I stumbled across your blog and realized that we have a mutual friend, Bridgett, and I sat next to you at her shower last fall! I work at Walker Zanger, and we are still selling tons of this linear tile as well as wood look tile. Wood tiles have come a long way in the last few years, and I think they are here to stay, especially for commercial applications where real wood might not be appropriate.

I have a client who used a dark slate color in their kitchen and the finished product looks like old, aged and grayed barnwood plank floors. I love it and the flooring totally "makes" the kitchen!!

We have the light grey on the floor in our bathroom and on our shower walls. Love it, but it shows every bit of dirt, hair. Etc.

Love it! I actually snagged some porcelain strie tile at a bargain basement price that was leftover from a large commercial job. It's awaiting a future laundry room remodel. Can't wait to install it. I like the look of the wood plank ones, too.

We installed the wood look in our new office, and have used it successfully in many client's homes as well.

Check it out in our office-

The darker stonepeak option offers recycled content as well, which is always a plus!
