Timber-look tiles – in vogue and versatile
September 9, 2014

If you are looking for sophisticated, durable, easy-to-maintain flooring, wood may not usually come to mind. But the latest trend from Europe – timber-look tiles – gives you the look and functionality.

serenissima VINTAGE grigio (2) webTimber has long been a coveted look for floors, but has the added worry of damage from pets, high heels and scratches from sharp objects, along with fading and water absorption. It is also a product that requires little maintenance and no re-sanding.

Tile Warehouse says the combination of style and ease has made the timber-look tiles incredibly popular. Unlike many flooring finishes, timber tile is also ideal for use over under-floor heating and in wet areas such as bathrooms and around the pool because they don’t deteriorate to the same degree as timber.

Treverk Black (3) webDesigned to be a modern take on hardwood floors, this tile trend has inspired a variety of looks with a range of sizes, colours and finishes. Tile Warehouse has a substantial range of timber tile options, including Babylon, Vintage, Epokal, Saloon, Treverk and Wood2.
