What are the advantages of dark timber effect floor tiles?

There are a number of advantages to using timber effect tiles that are a darker grey, blue or dark brown colour. These advantages and benefits include:

  • Creating a dramatic feature- a dark floor can create a dramatic feature for your room, especially in larger spaces and open plan kitchens. This is because lighter coloured timber or laminate is used more frequently, so a dark timber effect tiled floor can be a real show stopper.
  • Practical- using dark coloured floor tiles, of any style, is often a more practical option. This is because darker coloured tiles are less likely to show stains or damage. While timber effect tiles are fully waterproof, and wont need sealing or treating, they can still be stained by certain liquids including paint. With darker coloured floor tiles, you won’t need to worry. Also any dirt or mud will be well hidden, which means that for flooring near to any exterior doors, dark colours can be very effective.
  • Looks like natural wood- timber effect floor tiles are designed to look exactly like a real hardwood floor. From the grain pattern to the visual texture, these tiles are almost impossible to tell apart from the real thing. And dark coloured wooden, or timber effect, floors often have the biggest impact.
