70s Inspired: Wood Effect Tiles

Posted by Rebecca | Wednesday, April 25, 2018

We’re celebrating 40 years of business here at DTW - that’s right, we were founded in 1978! - so we’re looking back over some of the interior design trends we’ve loved over the years. Admittedly there are some trends from the ‘70s that we’d rather not repeat, but with some gentle updating, there’s still plenty of treasure to be found among the retro styles we used to love.

Wood panelling was all the craze back in the day. Perhaps we were influenced by a fusion of Scandinavian and Far Eastern traditional decor styles? While we’re not advocating that you cover all of your walls in panels of synthetic knotty pine (typically paired with a garish linoleum floor - for which we beg forgiveness from the design gods), we can recommend some surprisingly realistic wood effect tiles from our range for your floors, starting with our Carson Rustic Tiles, pictured above right.

These Genuine Grey Porcelain Wood Effect Tiles have stolen our hearts. The attention to detail in the grain really enhances the impact of the wood effect style, while the bleached beech tone is on-trend and is sure to make a welcome addition to any living space. 

Just a few of the benefits of wood effect tiles:

  • They're easier to clean and maintain than solid wood floor
  • Their detailed wood texture gives more anti-slip resistance than laminate flooring (plus we think it looks more realistic!)
  • They're more cost effective and long-lasting than wood flooring

We have a huge range of wood effect tiles so why not take a look - and remember you can order free samples online so you never have to buy without being sure what you’re getting.

Or pop into one of our showrooms to have a look at the range for yourself.
