looking for 9 year old wood ceramic tile

We are opening up a wall in our kitchen and are trying to find wood grain ceramic tiles that were installed in 2000 to fill in under the removed wall. we bought the tile on 6/12/2000 from a company that is no longer in business. The original invoice called the tiles, 5X16 pino leno (wood grain) #BMG100 But the actual size is 5 1/4 by 16. The color or grain looks like pine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum, Dan.

We get posts like this now and again, and I'm sad to report that it's not likely that you find what you are looking for. But, this is as good a place as any to look. Maybe you will turn out to be the exception. Good luck.

There are plenty of good minds here to help you come up with an alternative plan if need be.

Find something close. You have a better chance of winning the lottery than finding that tile.

Maybe Brian will come along. He seems to know who is still making what and who isn't.....................

They still make tile that looks like wood. Like I say just get it as close as possible.

When you go to a tile distributor don't walk in and ask if they have your tile (that is if you have a sample). Ask if they have something close. If they have it they will tell you but at least you won't replicate the one customer a day that walks in asking the same question then walks out to head to 15 more tile places after coming from 5.

Rule number one in life: You go with what you got, imperfections and all.

The company name and a pic might help.

Perhaps type it into a "Google Search" and see what you come up with...
They didn't want it good, they wanted it Wednesday.
