Wood You Believe It? The Benefits Of Wood-Effect Tiles

As nature continues to be a huge trend for interiors, bringing natural materials into the home has become an increasingly popular style choice for many homeowners. One of the most popular – and most versatile – ways to incorporate this trend is to use wood-effect tiles. From living rooms to bathrooms, hallways to kitchens – the beauty of wood-effect tiles creates a warm and inviting feel in any space.

Though there are many benefits to real hardwood flooring, it can be an expensive choice that is not always a suitable option for many homes. This is why wood-effect ceramic and porcelain tiles are such a popular option on the market these days. They could easily pass for real wood flooring, minus the expense and upkeep.

Combining the look of real wood with the durability of tiles, wood-effect tiles continue to gain popularity as a top alternative to hardwood floors – and even walls, too. Thanks to high-tech digital printing processes, today’s wood look tiles simulate the styles, colours and natural grains that will allow you to create a space that is both visually appealing and easily maintained.

Harder wearing than their real wood counterparts, wood-effect porcelain and ceramic tiles don’t scratch and mark, won’t fade or discolour over time, and are easy to clean and maintain. This makes them an ideal choice for families, heavy traffic areas in the home, pet owners and anyone looking for a low-maintenance flooring alternative to real wood.

Wood look tiles are also waterproof, which makes them an ideal choice for kitchens, bathrooms, hallways and conservatories. Many of our sturdy porcelain varieties can also be used as a chic alternative to a traditional patio, BBQ area or decking in the garden to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living. Like the feel of a toasty floor underfoot? Wood-effect tiles are also ideal for pairing with an underfloor heating system.

Aside from their desirable prices and practicality, wood effect porcelain and ceramic tiles also offer endless choice when it comes to style and design. From warm and rustic to classic and rich, cool urban chic to a laidback beach house feel – there’s a style to suit all tastes.
