Need help finding walnut plank tile

Posted by adh673 (My Page) on

We are about to embark on two bathroom renovations and I have decided to go with the wood-look tile. We recently put in random width character grade black walnut throughout the house and I'd like it to have a similar look. One bathroom adjoins a wood hallway, the other is off our carpeted bedroom

I am having trouble finding wood that looks "black walnut-ish" that is to say, not uniformly dark as our floors have actually a ton of color variation. However I suspect some tile companies are not calling a matching color "walnut" but are using something more creative. Its hard to tell on my monitor.

Does anyone have any first hand experience with wood plank tiles that look similar to a character black walnut? I'm linking to my finished kitchen post so you can see our wood floors I am trying to match.

Lowes sells a "black walnut" wood look tile. They don't look as "black" in real life as the website shows. I plan to use this in my master bath remodel if we ever get to the floors.

RE: Need help finding walnut plank tile

I installed this tile 4 years ago in my two front bedrooms with black grout. It is beautiful with the sunlight hitting it and at nighttime. It is textured with wood grain and little knot holes. There is shade variation that you could match up to reproduce the long stripes in your kitchen. I had the tiles purposely mixed and the grains broken up since the rooms are only 12 x 10. One room has epoxy grout which I use for my whelping and puppy room. The other room is my office. It is very easy to mop. Below is the link for the manufacturer. The Country Suede is much darker in person than how it appears on my monitor.
