4 Reasons Why Wood Tiles are the Perfect Choice for your Home

Starting download...

Wood tiles (also referred to as timber tiles or timber look tiles) offer a unique combination of style and functionality. These elegant tiles can be used as an alternative solution to hardwood timber floors, providing a long list of exciting benefits for both interior and exterior spaces. From their immense durability to their numerous applications, we explore the many reasons why wood tiles make for an excellent choice in the home!

Wood Tiles Provide a Durable Surface Finish

Wood tiles are usually made of durable porcelain. Porcelain tiles are part of the ceramic tile family however, their difference lies in the kiln baking procedure: porcelain tiles are baked at a significantly higher temperature than that of ceramic tiles and will also be baked for a longer period of time. This process results in an immensely hard wearing material that is resistant to staining, scratching, heat and moisture, making them an excellent flooring solution for all areas of the home. Furthermore, wood tiles can be used as a substitute to real timber in areas of the home where timber is not preferred due to the space’s high amount of humidity or moisture. In keeping with the current regulations in relation to specifying timber flooring in the home, wet areas such as the laundry room or bathroom cannot include timber flooring. Wood tiles however, can be used in these spaces, offering a stylish alternative solution that is resistant to humidity and moisture.

A Versatile Design Solution

Replicating the natural texture and colour variations of real timber, timber look tiles are available in an extensive range of options. These tiles can be found in warm, honey toned timber styles, whitewashed timbers, grey tones and many more. You will also find a selection of classic shapes available from timber plank tiles, chevron tiles, herringbone tiles and even parquetry look tiles.

Wood Tiles Provide a Low Maintenance Option

Although incredibly beautiful, real timber floors will require some level of care and maintenance. These types of floors can be scratched, stained or otherwise damaged which in turn would require re-sanding and polishing in order to repair. Timber tiles on the other hand offer a low maintenance alternative solution for the home, being ideal for busy families. Wood tiles will not scratch or stain and will not require sealing, ensuring a low maintenance option. These tiles can easily be kept clean and tidy with a simple sweep, vacuum or mop, being an excellent choice for allergy sufferers.
