Wood effect tiles,

Are a very popular choice with homeowners who are looking to create a relaxing Natural look in your home with the natural charm and warmth of wood but without the complexities of installation and maintenance programs of hardwood floors. Wood effect tiles come in a huge variety of sizes and colours making them suitable for any room in your home.

Wood effect Tiles has always been a better value than hardwood. However, until recently, it didn’t come close to delivering the overall warm appearance that is natural to real wood. With advances in technology, it’s now easier than ever to duplicate the aesthetics at significant savings. Take a look at Porcelanosa’s wood effect tile range the qualitly of there tiles is simply outstanding.

There are many advantages of using wood effect tiles over natural hardwood flooring,

  • Cost Natural hard wood flooring is more expensive compared to wood effect tiles.
  • Discolour over time, Hardwood flooring is prone to discolour overtime due to sunlight, heavy foot traffic or even cleaning products making an uneven finish and noticeable difference.
  • Durability wood effect tiles especially Porcelain tiles are extremely hard wearing. Porcelain tiles are much denser and better for repelling water because porcelain tiles are baked at higher tempretures, they wear better and are a lot stronger than conventional ceramic tiles.  They will not fade or move overtime compared to natural wood.

In addition to individual certifications, be sure to research your tiles manufacturer. Larger companies often adhere to higher standards as their reputation is on the line.

If you find yourself debating between rectified and non-rectified tiles, select the former. Rectified tiles are checked for warping and unevenness. Additionally, the edges of rectified tiles are mechanically finished to allow for tighter grout lines and a seamless look.

Our last quality indicator is appearance. High-quality tiles are made with high-resolution images to mimic the graining and color variations found in natural wood. Tiles with clear images are a surefire sign of quality.
