Looking to add some warmth and natural elements to your space, without having to deal with ongoing high maintenance, or spending a fortune?
Porcelain timber-look tiles may be the best option for you. Not only can they be used in the entire house, including bathrooms, kitchens and laundries, but they are highly durable and long-lasting.
Timber-look tiles are available in a variety attractive, earthy colours: from pale white and grey tones to rich, dark browns. The latest ink-jet technology used to dye porcelain tiles allows the design to successfully recreate the natural appearance of real timber, grains and knots included. These tiles are also available in plank-like sizes such as 150x900mm and 200x1200mm to further represent the appearance of actual timber flooring.
As with all tiling jobs, grout is a must. When choosing grout for timber-look tiles, we recommend selecting a colour that is closest to the colour of the tile, or if you’re feeling bold, you may opt for a darker colour to recreate an authentic ‘floor board’ look.
One of the most outstanding things about timber-look tiles is their versatility. As mentioned, they can be laid throughout the entire home, allowing the formation of a seamless, harmonious, open-plan space. They also suit a variety of interior styles, from traditional and rustic to ultra-modern and contemporary. Timber-look tiles are also strongly recommended for those with allergies or asthma, as tiles do not harbour dust mites, pet hair or pollen.
Another amazing property of porcelain timber-look tiles is that they are virtually maintenance-free. There is no sealing required, furthermore porcelain is stain and mould resistant, scratch resistant, UV stable, and water tolerant. Porcelain tiles are easily be kept clean with regular vacuuming and mopping, as part of a normal household routine. Keep in mind, tiles may be prone to chipping over time with heavy use, so it’s a great idea to keep a few tiles handy to replace them as you need.
Perhaps the best aspect of porcelain timber-look tiles is their cost effectiveness: they offer a high-quality, long-lasting, low-maintenance flooring solution for a fraction of the cost and of other materials. They’re also endlessly stylish, recreating the warm aesthetic of natural timber and setting a neutral backdrop for your space, allowing your furniture and fixtures to shine.
