Why porcelain wood tiles are perfect for your project
Whilst real wood floors are consistently popular, porcelain wood tiles, which imitate natural timber, are an emerging trend and have come a long way since their inception. With technological advances and more sophisticated production methods, wood tiles are now better quality, more realistic and authentic-looking and provide a fantastic alternative to a natural wood surface.
Incorporating realistic porcelain wood tiles into your commercial or residential project allows you to harness the character and natural appeal of wooden floorboards with all the benefits of a robust porcelain medium.
Wood tiles for any project
When it comes to wood tiles there's a colour and finish for any decorative style, so whether you want to introduce an oak, walnut or teak variant, there is an option for you. From traditional cottages to period town houses, open plan modern dwellings and commercial spaces, porcelain wood tiles are the intelligent choice. Porcelain wood tiles give the appearance of a beautiful natural timber floor but with the resilience of best quality porcelain.
The versatility of wood tiles
Porcelain wood tiles can be used to create a seamless look in large, open domestic and commercial spaces, on walls and floors. Certain ranges of simulated wood tiles can even be used outdoors – ideal for open plan spaces which flow from indoors to out; for example, from a living room to an outdoor terrace area, or in commercial environments, a bar, restaurant or hotel which opens out onto an outdoor entertainment area.
Wood tiles for commercial spaces
Commercial flooring in any space should deliver durability, practicality and cost-efficiency whilst also being aesthetically pleasing. Porcelain tiles are especially suitable for heavy-traffic areas where there is a high footfall, as they offer a hard-wearing and durable surface – unlike natural wood, porcelain wood tiles don't require a significant amount of treatment or maintenance and they don't scratch, stain or mark easily.
Mirror nature's textures and colours in residential projects
For a light and modern approach to home décor, consider using subtle silver-grey wood tiles alongside exposed brick and glass. Restrained neutral-toned porcelain wood tiles deliver an understated yet striking finish in the fashionable Nordic/Scandi style. For a more traditional setting, vintage style can be achieved with warm tones and a more rustic texture and pattern to add character to a space. Dependent on the setting, porcelain wood tiles can be laid in a variety of patterns to create different effects – for example, a herringbone pattern or in a linear plank design.
Wood tiles: the ideal choice to accompany underfloor heating
When it comes to underfloor heating, porcelain wood tiles are an ideal surface to use as they offer superior thermal conductivity compared to real timber.
