The outdoor area of a house is often the best place to entertain and associate with your loved ones. You have more space and feel a sense of freedom being outside. Such a vital area of your home should not be neglected. One of the best ways to decorate your outdoor area is to use practical and durable tiles. Why not think about using timber look porcelain tiles for your outdoor space? Below are 5 reasons why it’s worth considering.
There is no doubt about it, we all love the look of a beautiful timber floor. Timber flooring feels warm and the varied character of each piece of timber enriches a space like no other. Modern timber look porcelain tiles are engineered to reproduce this unique character of natural timber in fine detail. Most European tile manufacturers have adopted new innovative technology to digitally print multiple layers of colour to tiles, adding depth and warmth just like natural timber. They are also available in many different shades of natural colours allowing you to find just the right colour that will complement your colour scheme.
Durability and Practicality
As far as the durability goes, there is virtually nothing that compares with timber look porcelain tiles. Porcelain is a much harder material compared to normal ceramic tiles and is often used in high traffic commercial areas as a preferred material. In the outdoor environment where the floor is exposed to many damaging elements, that’s a big plus. Timber look porcelain tiles also aren’t sensitive to water as natural timber is. The dense body and glazed surface of timber look porcelain tiles mean that there is no need to seal or treat the tiles every once in a while like a natural timber floor.
How many trees need to be cut down to produce timber look porcelain tiles? None. Leading tile manufacturers also use recycled materials to reduce environmental damage to a minimum. Look for the Green Building Council LEED logo when purchasing timber look porcelain tiles for your outdoors.
Timber look porcelain tiles are still some of the more expensive products at tile retail stores. It’s not rare to find products priced over $100 or more per square metre. Fortunately, you’ll find reasonably priced timber look porcelain tiles at TFO. That’s not because they are of a lesser quality, in fact, they are some of the best in the world.
