Are you looking for timber look floorboard floor tiles? Timber look tiles are the most widely sought after tiles in Sydney. In fact, here at Tile Factory Outlet, they have become the single biggest selling type of tiles. Many see these tiles in retail shops for upwards of $100 /m2 and fall in love. However, they are often times shocked to see that they can afford these floorboard floor tiles by shopping at TFO. TFO sells these tiles at a mere fraction of that price. So, if you are after the best wood look porcelain tiles, come to TFO. Note the prices below.
The timber tile trend has been revolutionized by TFO. This trend doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon with the leading manufacturers continuing to expand their ranges ever wider. Why should you choose timber look tiles for your home? Below are 4 of the many reasons why:
1. Resistance to water and scratching
Unlike natural timber that is sensitive to water and easy to scratch, timber look tiles that are made of porcelain bodies are extremely hard wearing. A glazed surface makes them resistant to water absorption which prevents any damaging elements from staining the surface. A hard porcelain body makes them extremely hard to scratch. They can even be used outdoors or in a high traffic commercial environment.
2. A wide range of colours and designs
Innovative technology has allowed manufacturers to produce a wide range of stunning colours and designs using ink-jet digital printing. In comparison to traditional glazing, this new method makes it possible to reproduce the warm character of natural timber in fine detail. TFO has a wide range of timber look tiles, ranging from light to dark and modern to rustic, while still retaining the delicate natural character of timber.
3. Easy to maintain
It goes without saying but glazed tiles are easier to maintain compared to natural timber. There is no need for periodical sealing or any other special care. The smooth finish of timber look tiles makes it easy to clean.
4. Environmentally friendly
Another obvious point, producing timber look porcelain tiles requires that no real trees be cut down. Additionally, many of our timber look tile providers from Europe use recycled materials to minimise the impact on the environment.

The New Trend
As the popularity of timber look tiles continues to grow fast, new types of timber look tiles are emerging.
One noticeable trend is the increased amount of timber look tiles with a rustic character. When timber look tiles were just being introduced to the market, they were all trying to replicate the look of perfect timber boards, smooth and without any faults. However, Australians are now enjoying timber look tiles with a feel of rippled, ribbed or an undulating surface under foot. Many are surprised to find that they are also easy to maintain as the glazed surface doesn’t trap dirt. You’ll also find other beautiful expressions of timber look tiles such as those replicating the old timber boards on a beach house with paint peeling off or others that feature the look of timber boards worn out by a long hard life of use.
Another new trend in timber look tiles is large size timber look tiles. Long gone are the days when 120x600mm was the standard size in timber look tiles. These small size timber look tiles are nearly unsellable these days. While it can be a challenge for manufacturers to produce larger size timber look tiles with consistent quality, sizes such as 200x1200mm are becoming more common than ever. Larger formats make timber look tiles even more natural, decrease the amount of visible grout joints and make the area look more spacious and seamless.
If you are in the market for the best wood floor tiles and the latest designs, look nowhere else other than TFO. But the best thing about buying timber look tiles at TFO is the price. Directly imported from European top brands, TFO’s timber look tiles are offered at the lowest prices in Sydney. Browse our wide range of the best wood look porcelain tiles now!
If you have a less than experienced tiler who does not lay a lot of timber look tiles, we suggest you look at using a tile levelling system. A simple browse on eBay will show a multitude of systems that range widely in price and quality. However, most of these systems will greatly reduce any of the lipping issues you may be experiencing.
With these technical issues out of the way, enjoy the beauty and practicality of truly remarkable products – timber look tiles!
