Using timber effect floor tiles

Timber effect floor tiles are an incredibly popular option for both contemporary and traditional homes. In fact, these tiles can be more effective than natural hard wood flooring. But why are timber effect floor tiles so popular? And how can you get the most out of them? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to using timber effect floor tiles.

Why choose timber effect floor tiles?

First of all, why are timber effect floor tiles so popular? Why are so many homeowners and property developers choosing these tiles? Well, there are many advantages to these tiles, including:

  • the hard wearing quality – if you opt for porcelain timber effect tiles, they are less likely to crack or chip than ceramic tiles, and are also much more durable than lino or some laminate options.
  • the aesthetic appeal- these tiles look incredible, and realistic, and will not wear out or become worn as easily as laminate flooring.


Using timber effect floor tiles

Timber effect floor tiles offer a lot of scope to add character and depth to any room. The textures of the timber tiles really reflect the textures of a hard wood floor, and stay true to that reflection. While the colours are also deep and realistic. Just like with any floor tiling project, you should focus on:

  • the layout of the tiles
  • the colour of the tiles

Tiling layout

When using timber effect floor tiles, it pays to consider the tiling layout. These tiles can be set in a variety of patterns. Ranging from the simple brick bond pattern that reflects an actual hard wood floor most effectively, to more complicated layouts like the herringbone pattern or the basket weave. Whatever tiling layout you choose, make sure it reflects the character of your room. Some tiling layouts will be conected with certain styles or time periods, and this can date your tiling in a contemporary property.


Tiling Colours

In addition, you should bear in mind the colour of your timber effect floor tiles. These are available in a  wide 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.
