Visual appeal and flexibility
Modern porcelain tile technology, often inspired by actual wood grain images, can now simulate the knots, rings and other imperfections which are such
an important part of the visual impact of natural oak flooring. An Indigenous Bark tile, for instance, captures the light and shade effect of living
wood while the Light Fawn tile explores the delicate shadowing of lighter tones. Further variation is offered by the Mushroom tile which mimics lightly
weathered oak or the parched-wood effect of Oatmeal complete with exquisite time-worn blemishes.
Aesthetically attractive, porcelain tiles have practical advantages too. Unlike real wood flooring, oak effect floor tiles will not require sealing. That
means they can be used problem-free in damp locations such as kitchens and bathrooms where authentic wood flooring would be an impractical choice.
In addition, these hard-wearing floor tiles can be laid in areas such as hallways which are likely to experience heavy traffic – and where a traditional
oak floor may scratch and stain or show signs of heavy wear.
Expand your interior style options
Whilst oak wood effect floor tiles can be installed using the same geometric patterns as natural wood planks, different tile designs and colours can also
be mixed together to create totally unique effects. And in addition, a range of plank widths can also help to create further random or rustic-style
The flexibility of porcelain tiling also means that interior patterns can be carried seamlessly across walls and flooring. And where adjacent spaces demand
continuity, designs can flow from room to room and also incorporate external patio areas for an inside/outside look.
Optimised for modern environments
Oak effect floor tiles are a sustainable choice which offers the beauty of oak timber without posing any threat to our precious natural woodland resources. Furthermore, these tiles are can be installed with complete confidence where there is any form of modern underfloor heating.
