We have a hardwood insert on our kitchen floor and we will be surrounding it with slate tile. Also the room next to the kitchen is all hardwood floor. Our heights are correct for the tile (with the backboard installed) but i'm curious as do I put down thin-set mortar between the backerboard and wood and then grout between the tile and wood as well?
It seems like I should but I haven't found much information on tile/wood combinations.
+++ #### wood and tile +++ ---- wood and backerboard ======== sub-floor
So to clarify, do I need to put mortar between the wood and backerboard?
