Yes. I have done it. First have the hardwood floor installed. After the hardwood floor is installed have the tile installer install the tile. The reason for this is that the hardwood is very firm and has little room for adjustment. An excellent tile installer can adjust the height of the tile to be flush and level with the hardwood floor with little or no seem. When its done it looks beautiful.
Most hardwood flooring stores sell "T" shaped molding that installs between the last board and the tiles. This spans the gap between the two different flooring types. Works best when the tile and the hardwood is at the same height. If the hardwood is much higher there is reducers as well. Check sites like www.lumberliquidators.com they sell all mentioned molding in various wood species to match your flooring.
A lot of people do not realize how important it is to maintain their hardwood floors. Even worse, they don't know that hardwood floors need to be handled in a different manner than tile, or any other surface. The key is to use the least amount of moisture as possible. As well, products that won't scratch or wear away at the wood are a must. Try using a lightly dampened cloth and cleaning in the direction of the wood grain. In cases in which you simply wish to remove dirt, a vacuum with hardwood setting would be best.
I have done this and I always have the hardwood installed first. Then I install the ceramic tile. To protect the hardwood floor from getting grout or glue on it I cover the hardwood floor with a soft cover (to prevent scratches) and tape it down. Then place a plastic cover over the hardwood. Then I can install the ceramic tile at the edge of the hardwood creating hardly or no seem and level with the hardwood. When its done it looks beautiful.I would install the tile first , that way you don't risk getting glue or grout on your hardwood.
Yes, but first remove the tile...:-) Actually, the trick is to remove the tile without gouging the hardwood floor beneath. Some surface scratching is inevitable while removing the tile but you want to keep it to a minimum. The sanding process when refinishing will eliminate any blemishes that are not to deep.
