Review on Wood Effect Tiles

For years, the only choice for those planning to enhance their homes with a beautiful timber floor was to go to their local supplier and select a solid wood, engineered wood or laminate product.

But times have changed. These days, savvy consumers are increasingly choosing ceramic or porcelain wood effect tiles as an alternative.

It's virtually impossible to tell the difference in appearance between a quality wood effect tile and natural wood. Wood effect tiles can replicate with surprising accuracy:
distressed wood
painted effect wood
reclaimed wood
hand scraped
parquet wood
patterned wood
fossilised wood

All in addition to the more common styles you would expect.

When it comes to maintenance costs, the clear winners are the wood effect tiles. The glaze on their surface ensures that they:
are highly resistant to scratching
cannot dent
cannot fade
do not discolour
do not stain
are simple to clean
are exceptionally resistant to wear
are waterproof

There is practically no maintenance required with ceramic or porcelain tiles, beyond regular mopping, sweeping or hoovering.

Natural floors can also last a lifetime, but require significantly more attention.

When deciding whether to lay timber or woods effect floor tiles, homeowners should consider the costs of each, the ongoing maintenance costs, the longevity, and the design variety that is available to them.
