Please give a brief about why the tile floor feels colder than the wooden floor even though both floor materials are at the same temperature.

It is because tile floor is a better heat conductor than wood. The heat transferred from your foot to the wood floor is not conducted away rapidly. So, the wood quickly heats up on its surface to the temperature of your foot but the tile conducts the heat away rapidly and thus can take more heat from your foot, so its surface temperature drops.
