Wood has been a firm favourite around the home for many years. The beauty of this natural material radiates warmth and character, bringing a wonderful homely feel to any area – both inside and out.
However, solid wood is not without its drawbacks – it’s susceptible to warping, moving, staining, and can take a lot of looking after. Wood look porcelain tiles offer the perfect solution – the charm and natural beauty of real wood, combined with the practicality and longevity of a porcelain tile.
Porcelain wood tiles are a stylish alternative to solid wood
Porcelain hardwood tiles are the perfect choice for any floor, in any area of the home, whether inside or outdoors. At Beswickstone we have a fabulous range of porcelain wood tiles in plank and large formats that really are hard to distinguish from the real thing. With a wonderful selection of styles, colours and effects, from parquet porcelain tiles to herringbone and large format porcelain tiles, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to adding glorious timber look flooring to your home.
Highly durable wood look porcelain tiles
Porcelain offers several advantages over solid wood, while still presenting the warm, inviting and stylish appearance of the real thing. For a start, porcelain hardwood flooring is far more resistant to wear and tear and easier to maintain than real wood –this makes it a great choice for high traffic and wet areas, like kitchens and bathrooms.
Porcelain wood tiles are also highly cost effective and easy to install. With no need to pre-treat or seal, these tiles are exceptionally easy to look after – just a simple mop with soapy water is all it takes to keep them looking as good as new. And you don’t need to worry about stains, spills or chips, they’re highly resilient to the demands of even the busiest home and, if you’re using them outside for a stylish patio area, they won’t crack in cold weather or fade in the sun.
Porcelain hardwood flooring is eco-friendly and highly versatile
Wood look porcelain tiles are far kinder to the environment than real timber – with no trees used whatsoever to create the stunningly realistic effects. They also don’t contain any Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) like some other floors do and, as they can be cleaned with just soapy water, there’s no need for any special chemicals or detergents that may harm the atmosphere.
There’s a myriad of styles to choose from, to suit any style of property, from the most contemporary to traditional. Our range includes fabulously on-trend parquet porcelain tiles in glorious shades of deep honey through dark chocolate to chic whitewashed. For a classic look, herringbone porcelain tiles present a beautiful backdrop to any room, while large format porcelain tiles are a gorgeous way to create the illusion of more space and look striking within open-plan interiors.
