Using wood effect tiles for floors

Wood effect tiles are the ideal way to add detail to your flooring but with added advantages over natural wood products.

Why choose wood effect tiles:

  1. Hardwearing
  2. Easy to clean
  3. Does not stain, scratch, warp or fade
  4. Waterproof
  5. Ideal for use with underfloor heating
  6. Natural look
  7. Choice of modern and rustic designs
  8. Fit brickbond, staggered, grid or herringbone layouts

The main benefit of wood effect tiles as opposed to natural wood is that they will require little maintenance. Not only are they exceptionally easy to clean, they will also keep on looking their best for years to come as they are really hard wearing. This means you can be relaxed and happy that your investment should see little wear and tear over time.

Installing flooring which has the look of wood but has a tiled finish has become a huge trend in interior design in recent years. The tiling industry has been able to utilise developments in inkjet printing technology for its newest ranges of wood effect tiles to create an authentic looking product. Designs are so realistic you would be hard pushed to choose between wood effect floor tiles and the real thing, proper wooden flooring.

Manufacturers are bringing through many different sizes of wood effect tiles too. So, you have lots of choice over the size and shape of the tiles fitted. Creative Tiles have a wide selection, starting from the Maderas ranges which are 16 x 45cm and then in various sizes increasing up to 17 x 200 cm.

There are also a wide range of wood effect tiles now available with different shades and finishes. From contemporary designs with modern clean lines to those with a traditional rustic finish. The choice is endless. For that natural look, wood effect tiles can be used in all rooms in the home and are ideal for conservatories, hallways, utilities, kitchens and bathrooms.

One other great reason to choose wood effect tiles is that they are perfectly suited to being installed with underfloor heating systems. So if you’re worried they might be a little cold underfoot, why not have underfloor heating fitted too.
