Here's an exciting wood look tile for you to consider for your home: Bio Wood Modular Wood Look Planks from Tile Outlets of America, and the first modular wood plank tile system we've offered.
What Is Bio Wood Modular Tile?
The Bio Wood series is a rectified porcelain tile that comes with three different sizes in one box, allowing you to create a modular pattern with thin grout lines. According to #TileTuesday Tip: Understanding the Difference Between Rectified and Calibrated Porcelain Tile,
"Rectified tiles ... are fired and then ground to size. This is done to achieve exacting standards in size consistency. Rectified tiles’ edges are precisely, mechanically finished for uniformity, ensuring the size is more precise from piece to piece within a product line.
The uniformity of rectified tiles provides enhanced ease of installation and can simplify installing patterns and unique tile designs. Rectified tiles’ exact edges may allow for smaller grout lines ... compared to the edges of non-rectified tiles. If thin grout lines are desired for an installation, it is recommended that rectified tiles be specified."
Bio Wood Modular Tile Is Available in Two Colors From Tile Outlets
Bio Wood modular porcelain tile is available in two colors: Noisette and Vineyard.

Note that these sizes are not sold separately and that boxes must be returned unopened. Not that you'd want to return this beautiful wood look tile!
