Kitchen Countertop help

Kendall FreemanNovember 22, 2012
Hi. I am building a house next year but am a planner by nature so when the time comes I can have nearly everything ready to go. I have been told there is a kind of kitchen countertop tile that looks like wood. I was told it actually comes in what looks like planks, not squares, and adheres just like regular tile. However, I can't seem to find it any where. Is there a specific name for it or does anyone know a distributor who carries it?
Thank you for the help!

Are you sure it is a tile meant for kitchen countertops and not just a tile that most people use on floors but some people may use on counters? Because if you look for wood-look tile there are many different products that fit your description exactly. They are just usually used for floors. There are lots of links and photos on the Houzz products page:

Planning is so much fun! Kudos to you for giving yourself lots of time for research. Feeny is right, the wood-look tiles are meant for the floor or wall typically. Grout lines on a countertop are never ideal, may I suggest you research solid slab options. Happy Thanksgiving
