Sydney’s biggest and the most affordable timber look tiles
Timber look tiles are in their full bloom. In fact, here at Tile Factory Outlet, they have become the single biggest selling type of tiles.
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. Look for the LEED Green Building Council logo when purchasing timber look porcelain tiles.
The New Trend
As the popularity of timber look tiles continues to grow fast, new types of timber look tiles are emerging.
