- Endless possibilities
Perhaps the main reason to choose wood effect tiles is that the sky is the limit – they can go in any room, on the floor and even on the walls!
Indoors, both porcelain and ceramic wood effect tiles can be used across all rooms – you could go for a classic kitchen-dining room combination to add some extra warmth to the family dinner without the hassle of having to clean up stains from carpets, or deal with warped wood/laminate in the aftermath of a spillage.
Another great place for wood effect tiles is, of course, the living room – pick a unique style, colour and pattern which will reflect the overall character of the room to your family guests, or even draw the eye to your walls by complementing your fireplace, Persian rug or mahogany desk with a signature wood effect tile wall piece.
Why not even turn your bathroom into a décor masterpiece by combining uniform design tiles like Maryland across your floor with a wooden furniture set or perhaps something edgier which would stand out.
The porcelain wood effect tiles are also a fantastic choice for outdoor flooring – their resistance to the elements makes them excellent for decking areas, garden paths and balconies. Compared to natural wood, tiles laid outside require a lot less maintenance, with the added bonus of being slip resistant for extra ease of walking on a rainy day, or during winter when the ground is often frozen.
- Choose from a rich colour palette
To further the point that wood effect tiles can be used for virtually any space in your house, the versatile choice of colours gives you a free reign when it comes down to interior design choices.
Want to make a room look more spacious, or brighten up a particularly gloomy area of your home? Then a lighter colour tile is the right choice for you – and while the go-to option here is usually beige, you could also experiment with grey, white or cream! This colour scheme is also particularly fitting if you are going for a neutral look which would complement a particular piece of statement furniture.
If, on the contrary, you are looking to make the floor your room’s centrepiece, you have a number of rich colours in darker shades to play around with – recreate the colour of real wood for a classic feel, or try out patterns and designs to really make an impact!
