When it comes to decorating your home, wall tiles may be high on your list of priorities. Tiles are an incredibly practical option as these are naturally water-proof, hard-wearing and durable, and they can also be incredibly stylish too. Timber effect tiles are becoming increasingly popular for both traditional and contemporary style properties. While these do tend to be used as floor tiles, to look like hard wood flooring, they can also be used effectively as all tiling too. So how can you use wood effect wall tiles in your property? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. We offer a range of tiles and tiling services to suit any project, and any budget. And this is our guide to how to use wood effect wall tiles.

What are wood effect tiles?

Wood or timber effect tiles are tiles that are designed to look like actual wood. From rich browns to pale greys, and all colours in between, wood effect tiles can be difficult to tell apart from real wooden surfaces, and are available in a range of colours to suit your home decor. These are even visually textured to create a more realistic appearance.

How to use wood effect wall tiles effectively

Using wood effect wall tiles in just the right place can help you create an attractive and stylish result. You could consider:

  • Hallway wall tiling- tiling the lower half of your hallway with timber effect tiles, can create an attractive feature. You could consider laying the tiles vertically, stretching up the wall, for the best results.
  • Bathroom feature wall- for a striking bathroom feature that really brings a touch of nature to your home, you could consider tiling one wall with timber effect wall tiles. This can really draw attention and stand out.
  • Kitchen wall tiling- for some kitchens, especially rustic and country kitchens, timber effect tiling can be very effective.
