What are the advantages of replacing laminate flooring with timber effect floor tiles?

There are a range of advantages and benefits to using timber effect floor tiles instead of laminate flooring, or replacing your laminate flooring with these tiles. These advantages include:

  • More hard-wearing, durable and resistant – timber effect floor tiles are designed to be hard-wearing which is perfect for heavy footfall areas such as the living room dining room kitchen and hallway. This means that the tiles will not crack or chip and unlike laminate they will not lift and become scuffed over fact timber effect floor tiles are a long lasting flooring option.
  • Visually stylish- timber effect floor tiles resemble hardwood flooring in every way. From the colour choices to the visual texture, and the size of each tile, there is little to no difference between timber effect floor tiles and standard hardwood flooring. This means that the timber effect floor tiles are also more visually impressive than laminate flooring and more realistically represent hardwood flooring.
  • Naturally waterproof- timber effect floor tiles are naturally waterproof which means that water will not get underneath the tiles and cause them to lift as it does with laminate flooring. It also means that you are less likely to stain the timber effect floor tiles and that these tiles will need much less maintenance to remain looking fabulous. As a result, replacing your laminate flooring in areas where water can be a concern is a practical as well as a stylish choice.
