I saw on a home improvement show (can't remember which) a new wood laminate product for floors out of the UK. It provided inlay options but needed professional installation. I am wondering if anyone knows what this product is called and the US dealers that have it.

Mary Beth,

Were they wood tiles? I just found some wood tiles made of recycled hardwoods, and look like ceramic tiles but aren't so cold to walk on. They are called Madera Tiles. Go to to find dealers in your area. My husband went by a dealer here in the Maryland D.C. burbs, and they were selling for $5 per tile (per square foot). A little bit more expensive than regular tile, but not too bad.

No, actually it looked like planks of wood but very pliable. I remember the lady from GB said that the technology producing this product had been used for the past 35 years in GB but was new to the states. It is supposed to be extremely durable but with the looks of real wood and the ability to create "inlays".
