- Grout joints make it look un-authentic
With wood-look tile, some are replacing their whole home's worth of hardwood flooring. Some people complain about this looking "fake", but if you get tile with the rectified edges, this eliminates this. Smaller grout joints help as well, as does getting a grout as similar in color as possible to the tile. You do not notice if you lay the tile in the same random pattern as wood floor, etc. You can have the easier maintenance option with the look of the hardwood.
