A Range of Styles to Choose From

One of the best parts of getting timber flooring for your home is going through the many different types of timber in see which best suits your home and your preference. However, one of the issues with this is that every single type of wood used in timber flooring is different, and there are different ways to care for each one, with some maintenance schedules being far more expensive than others. When looking after a wooden floor, some of the questions that you’ll need to ask yourself include “How often should I clean the floor?” “How much water am I supposed to be cleaning it with?” and “What type of varnish should I use?”

However, when you choose timber look tiles, all the problems that are associated with the different types of wood are eliminated, which means that you’re free to choose whatever styles suit you or your home, without having to worry about cleaning and maintenance. As well as this, buying timber look tiles doesn’t involve cutting down of any trees, which means that you’re free to choose the more exotic tiles for your home, without it impacting the environment.

At Tile Factory Outlet, we have Sydney’s largest range of timber look tiles and all available at outlet prices, which includes tiles that are styled based on even the most exotic woods, which means that no matter your preference or style of your home, you know that TFO has the timber look tiles for you.

Less Work than Timber Flooring

When timber flooring is properly maintained, it not only adds a lot of aesthetic value, but it also has the potential to greatly increase the property value as well. However, actually getting timber flooring to the state where it’s properly maintained can be rather difficult, as there are a lot of things that you need to consider, such as the type of wood that you have, the age of your timber flooring and how easily it can absorb water.

The first thing that needs to be considered about your timber flooring is the amount of water that it can absorb. Most timber floors are made of hardwoods, such as beech and ash, which are rather porous, which means that they can very easily absorb a lot of water. If your timber floor absorbs too much water, it can lead to issues such as warping and rot, which, if left unchecked, can force you to replace your timber flooring, which can cost thousands of dollars.

As well as this, maintaining your timber flooring also means applying varnish to it. However, before applying varnish, you’ll need to make sure that the type of varnish that you’re using is suitable for the type of timber flooring that you have, as using the wrong type of varnish can ruin your timber flooring, as well as impact the aesthetic and property values of your home. At Tile Factory Outlet, we understand the hassle that goes into cleaning and maintaining timber flooring, which is why our timber look tiles are made using high-quality porcelain, removing all of the issues that are associated with maintaining timber flooring. In order to maintain your wood-look tiles, all you’ll need to do is clean them with warm water, as they don’t need any chemical cleaners.

Tougher than Timber Flooring

As well as needing to maintain timber flooring, you also need to watch out for a number of different issues, such as water damage, rot and infestations, as all of these can not only greatly impact the value that timber flooring brings to your home, but it can also make you have to replace all of your timber flooring in extreme circumstances, which can result in you having to pay thousands of dollars.
Water damage is often caused by spillages, which are common in homes with young families, and can cause your timber flooring to warp and displace, which means that eventually, water damaged timber flooring will have to be removed and replaced. If your timber flooring starts to rot, eventually the rot will spread and greatly impact the structural integrity of your timber flooring, which means that it will eventually need to be replaced. Infestations of your timber flooring will most likely be done by either termites or woodworms, which will burrow into your timber flooring and begin to eat through it, which affects the structural integrity and will eventually result in replacement.

However, with timber look tiles, all of these problems become non-existent. Wood look tiles are made to be tough and as they’re made from porcelain, there isn’t a chance that they’ll be affected by water damaged, rot or insect infestation, which means that there aren’t as many factors that can result in an expensive replacement.

At Tile Factory Outlet, we’ve got a range of timber look tiles that are made of high-quality porcelain, so you know that they’re guaranteed to last longer than timber flooring, providing you with aesthetic value and cost effectiveness.

Are timber look tiles any good?

If you want all the luxury and style of timber flooring without having any of the issues that are associated with owning timber flooring, it’s very difficult to look past timber look tiles. Timber look tiles are designed to perfectly imitate timber flooring, with each tile having its own individual feel and grain, just as timber flooring does.

Not only do wood look tiles look great, but they’re extremely hardy and incredibly easy to clean. So, if you like the look of timber flooring, but don’t want the problems that come with timber flooring, timber look tiles are for you.

Are timber look tiles expensive?

Timber flooring is a great addition to any home, as it brings a lot of charm to any house and it can also greatly increase your home’s property value. However, one of the main issues with timber flooring is that it can be incredibly pricey, especially when choosing timber that comes from another country or timber that comes from an uncommon type of tree.

This is where timber look tiles are incredibly useful, as they can offer the appearance of those more exotic types of timber, without the exotic timber prices.

Are timber/wood look tiles hard to clean?

In order to maintain the aesthetic appeal of timber flooring, you’ll need to clean it regularly. However, one of the main issues with cleaning a timber floor is that wood is mostly porous, with some types of wood being more porous than others.

This means that your timber flooring may absorb water, causing it to warp, affecting both their aesthetic value and their structural integrity. However, wood look tiles are non-porous, which means that they don’t absorb water. As well as this, most timber look tiles are designed to be incredibly easy to clean.

Do wood look tiles need grout?

There are many types of wood look tiles that require grout. However, one advantage that they have over timber flooring is the number ways that you can lay your timber look tiles. Unlike wooden flooring, timber look tiles are a lot thinner and a lot less expensive, which means that you can afford to get creative with laying your tiles.

However, one thing that you’ll need to take into consideration is choosing a grout that’s darker than your tiles, in order to make the grout lines less noticeable. To find out more about laying wood look tiles, click here.

Are wood look tiles colder than wood?

Even though wood look tiles are designed to imitate wood, they are still tiles, which means that they are a far denser flooring material than timber, which means that timber look tiles will be colder underfoot than timber flooring. However, this comes with its own range of advantages, especially for the average Australian home.

As timber look tiles are colder underfoot than timber flooring, they can be far more comfortable during those long Australian summer months. As well as this, tiles will also transfer heat much quicker, which means that you can make the most of the sun’s warmth during the winter months.
