What are Timber Tiles?
Timber tiles are made of a porcelain tile material that has been specifically designed to emulate the appearance and texture of natural timber. These tiles are created using an ultra-high definition image that is printed directly onto the tile, offering a realistic level of variation in depth of colour and grain texture. These tiles are available in a range of different timber colour options as well as a variety of different tile sizes or formats; you will find timber tiles available in plank formats, parquetry styles, chevron and even herringbone tile options.

You will also find timber porcelain tiles available for outdoor use; these tiles offer a long lasting alternative option to traditional timber decking that can often also be used to surround a pool area. Unlike timber decking, porcelain timber tiles will not require sealing, sanding or polishing. These tiles can be kept clean with a simple hose down to remove any debris from the garden or animal droppings, keeping them in their best shape over time.
The Benefits of Timber Tiles
Traditional timber finishes provide a warm, elegant and timeless aesthetic in the home however, they do require special care and attention in order to keep them looking their best. Furthermore, timbers are often avoided in wet areas of the home such as the bathroom and laundry as continued exposure to the humidity and moisture in these spaces can warp and damage the timber. If you are looking to introduce the warmth of real timber into your home but would prefer a solution that does not require the same level of care, timber look porcelain tiles are the perfect option. Porcelain tiles are well known for their immense strength and durability; these types of tiles are resistant to moisture, staining, scratching and heat, making them an incredibly versatile option that can be included in your indoor and outdoor design schemes.
