Help...wood tile thoughts?

I have Benjamin Moore's Revere pewter paint on the walls. I have stained the kitchen cabinets in a black color. We are putting an island in the middle. The quartz countertop I have is a plain type white color. Planning on a mosaic tile backsplash. I am debating on wood look tiles. I had dark rosewood flooring in my last house and I don't miss the maintenance but still love the look if wood. What are your thoughts on wood tiles....does it look cheesy??? Will I regret it? I'm thinking a darker color for wood tiles, with minimal dark grout line.
Also, should I do entire downstairs with the wood tiles? Has anyone used it in a large room?

If you are talking about the porcelain wood-look tiles, they don't look cheesy at all, not even a little bit !!! I ordered samples from a place in Canada and I am totally impressed with them. If I were doing something like your project I wouldn't hesitate.

Typed in wood tile floors, kitchens - into houzz photos - do you think these look cheesy? They look wonderful - suspect wood tiles will look great in your kitchen too!

Paradise, I have the floor in the first pic, and I don't recommend it unless the tile is the exact same height as the oak. I have a floor scrubber that vacuums the dirty water, but because of the different heights the water puddles on the oak. It is pretty, tho!....olldbob
