Advantages of timber effect floor tiles for your kitchen
Timber effect floor tiles are tiles that are designed and created to look just like hard wood or laminate. The tiles are designed in realistic colours and patterns, and once these tiles are installed, it’s impossible to tell the difference between tiles or real wood. So, what are the advantages of timber effect floor tiles for your kitchen? Well for the kitchen specifically, there are a whole host of benefits, including:
- Waterproof and stain resistant- Timber effect floor tiles are fully waterproof (if laid with waterproof grout) and stain resistant. This means they are the perfect option for kitchens, where real wooden flooring may be less practical.
- Hard-wearing-Porcelain tiles are hard-wearing and durable. So your timber effect floor tiles are less likely to become scratched or marked than hardwood or laminate. In addition, if a tile does become damaged, it can easily be replaced. Unlike hard wood which may have to be taken up completely.
- Low maintenance- These tiles are also incredibly low maintenance. Hard wood floor can be difficult to maintain, keep clean, and keep looking like new. However, all your timber effect floor tiles need is a warm water mop from time to time.
