When it comes to tiling, layout is a great way to make a statement and really show of your tiles. Porcelain timber tiles are no exception.

Herringbone: The herringbone layout is a popular choice for timber effect tiles as it is stylish yet simple. The layout itself can help your space look wider than it really is, which is helpful for galley kitchens and narrow rooms.

Parquet: Although this flooring layout was traditionally created from real wood, it looks equally as stunning in timber effect tiles. Many porcelain timber effect tiles are incredibly realistic, which makes it hard for visitors and guest to notice a difference.


Its easy to forget that wooden tones are available in a range of shades. The same is true for porcelain timber tiles. These tiles are available in a range of colours from greys to browns, and creams to beige’s. Choose the right colour for your space, but dont be afraid to be creative.

Mix it up: Choose two different coloured porcelain timber tiles, from the same manufacturer and the same model (easier to match up sizes) and mix and match your floor colour scheme. This can create a fantastic and unusual effect.

Border tiles: Use porcelain timber tiles in a different colour to the main floor around the edges of the room to really make a statement.
