ceramic tile acclimation

I have heard that laminate has to be in the area where it will be placed 48 hours in order to acclimate to the room. Is it helpful for ceramic tile to be in the room 48 hours before in order to acclimate? It may have been in some warehouse, and here in Texas it can get very hot.
Many thanks for your advice.

No need to worry about that Eldon as long as we're not talkin a 70 degree difference in room and tile,like frosty to sweaty.

What about 110 degrees in the warehouse and 70 degrees in the air conditioned kitchen?

I always thought the acclimation of wood products had to do with humidity as well as temperature. Wood has a lot of quirky properties under chaning humidity. Plus, wood is a much better insulator than tile, so it takes a lot longer for the internal temperature to acclimatize. As long as your tile doesn't feel burning hot or freezing cold, it's going to be fine and it should only take a few minutes for a hot tile to cool to ambient temperature.
