Wood Look Tile

I am thrilled to be partnering with Jeffrey Court, and I’ve moved into the House of JC Style as one of their Tastemakers for 2019! Their gorgeous tile (like this wood-look tile) is helping me transform my home.

Last fall, I remodeled my daughter’s bathroom in partnership with Jeffrey Court and their Fall 2018 Renovation Challenge.

Although I didn’t win the competition, I am honored that it opened up a partnership with Jeffrey Court.

We recently remodeled what was our kids’ playroom into a home office, and Jeffrey Court’s tile is definitely the highlight of the space!

I used Teakwood by Jeffery Court, and it is stunning.

Tiling a floor is not hard – it only requires a little knowledge and confidence going into the project. My first tile project was a kitchen backsplash just a few years ago. With a little practice, I am now tiling full spaces!

Before tiling a space, the old flooring must be removed. Our previous flooring was carpet, so removal was fairly simple.

Once the carpet was removed, we pulled any remaining staples and nails from the subfloor, then it was time to begin laying the cement board ( I share a full tutorial on laying cement board HERE). It is important to stagger them – you don’t want to ever have a place where all four corners meet.

Once the cement board is down and screwed, you will need to tape and mud the seams. The goal is to create a level space for the tile.

I began my tile at the doorway. You need to be strategic about how you lay it, and I want my tile to look perfect at the entryway (I share a tutorial for tiling floors and walls HERE).

From there, I extended out the tile and made sure to use spacers.

It was a long process, but the result is SO beautiful!

It looks like wood but provides the durability of tile.

Our tile flooring will look as good as new for years because spills won’t stain it easily, our kids can play on it without noticeable wear and pets won’t leave it scratched.

Wood-look tile is one of the easiest to maintain, and unlike hardwood, tile can withstand a majority of cleaning materials.

I love the variation and texture this tile brings to the space. Each tile appears unique.

It is amazing how much Jeffrey Court’s tile helped transform the space into one that we love and can enjoy for years to come!

    We actually saw wood look tile in a house that we toured last weekend. The owners had installed it in their basement bedroom, and it looked really great. It was nice to see it laid out in person.

    I like wood for my flooring. Wood can be more precious and more glossy than other object and you prove it.
    I am loving with your skill and really appreciate you for your project.

    Sara, I can’t tell you how informative your tutorials are. Bravo. You took the scariness right out of installing a door knob and more.

    Thanks again.
