Purchasing Wood Tile
Wood-look tiles comes in 3”– 9” wide by 24”-60” planks and is priced from $5.00-$15.00 per square foot. The varying widths allow for either a traditional look, straight set or 1/3 off-set or installation in a myriad pf patterns: herringbone, railroad or parquet. The color and specie choices are endless! Wood-look tile can vary from light colors that rival white-washed oak all the way to dark stained woods such as, hickory or cherry.
There exists a wood–look tile for every design style too. The Tabula series by Vallelunga is a very refined wood look with soft graining. If you are looking for a time worn, rustic look; check out the colors offered by Old Wood or WOW series’.

Why Use Wood Tile?
Wood-look tile is most often porcelain and works very well in Central Oregon. It will hold up to our dusty outdoor lifestyle and can be used on floors, walls (in covered spaces), countertops, in a 3-season room, bathroom, or kitchen. It also works in virtually all spaces: your fishing cabin, hotel lobby, dental office, craftsman home in NWX, bungalow overlooking Drake Park, or contemporary down town loft. This product is easily maintained with the occasional mop and can be placed over heating coils or mats.
