Timber flooring gives you that warm and rich feeling under your feet and aesthetically in your home. If you are looking to create that same feeling with a material that has the strength of tiles, then timber-look tiles are the perfect solution for you! Porcelain timber-look tiles are versatile and highly durable and can be used indoors and outdoors.
The timber tiles we stock at Armstone hold a striking resemblance to natural timber floor boards, except they are made of strong porcelain stoneware. This makes them ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms and balconies, or any other internal and external floors.
With improvements in technology, matt porcelain floor tiles are difficult to distinguish from real natural timber floors, making timber-look porcelain tiles more realistic than ever. These realistic properties include the shades, textures, knots, grains and other irregularities found in timber.
Unlike real timber, though, timber-look floor tiles have a major advantage: they do not need regular and time consuming maintenance involving sealing, waxing and polishing. Also, unlike timber floors, porcelain tiles don’t warp, shrink or expand when exposed to extreme heat, cold or moisture. If you accidentally spill something on timber porcelain tiles, you simply wipe it off! If the floor gets dirty, you simply wash it. They are easy to maintain which makes them perfect for you if you have a busy lifestyle, lavish entertaining schedules or growing a family with young children!
