So... my sweet, loving, gracious husband and I have been going back and forth about what to do. I loved the engineered wood in our last house but it dented and kind of pulled away because the house wasn't level. My husband wants to do tile everywhere but I want it to look like wood.
Wood Look Tile. That's right. I'm not sure if I'm the last person on earth to know about this but I found out about 3 months ago. Porcelain and ceramic tiles that look just like real wood.
The only problem is it was out of my price range (the one's I liked were $4.00 a sq ft). So after about 3 months of searching online, craigslist, and tile stores, here are my favorite cost efficient choices.
From Build Direct. $2.89 per square foot. Here's the link.
This tile from Lowes.
But in the end we decided to go with THIS tile from Floor and Decor. The price in store is actually $1.99 a square foot even though online it says more. I bought a sample of it and brought it home. It looks AMAZING with my paint, cabinets and furniture. We are going to start installing the middle of August so forgive me if I'm not around for a while.
If you've ever installed wood look tile before and have any helpful hints, PLEASE feel free to tell me. I will be doing most of the installation myself and I'm so excited to be rid of my disgusting carpet! And don't even get me started on how excited I am to use a wet saw.
Also, I didn't get paid for this, nor do I get a discount. Unfortunately.
