No trees were harmed in the making of any Eco Friendly Tiles wood look porcelain floors!
Wood look porcelain is durable, low maintenance, long-lasting, extremely beautiful and easy on the environment! The research and technology poured into creating realistic tile designs has reached its peak with wood looks. Although the trend is gaining more and more traction, sometimes we’re still asked: “Why not specify the real thing instead?”
Here are a few reasons to specify wood look porcelain over hardwood flooring:
It’s not as susceptible to the deep dents, knicks and scratches of natural wood. The performance of wood effect porcelain means it can be used for the high traffic areas and wet areas where natural wood won’t last. They are significantly more scratch, abrasion and stain resistance. There is also the added of bonus of porcelain not fading – your project will maintain it’s colour rich, natural wood look for years following installation.
Your clients will thank you for not subjecting them to a lifetime of polishing and staining! It is incredibly easy to clean wood look porcelain, and strong moisture resistance means you can install it in bathrooms and kitchens where natural wood can warp and decay.
Design and Appearance
Our Cascade wood look tiles make our clients do a double take. Are these antique wooden planks? To be honest, it’s hard to tell without touching them. Each wood look tile comes in at least 80+ surface variations so there are no visible repeats no matter how you install them. Our wood looks are available in many different formats, from 120mm long planks to large squares, 3D mosaics and everything in between. If you’re looking for uniform and traditional, or aged and weathered, there is beautiful wood look porcelain for every design style.
Apart from the obvious – no trees destroyed in the making of these tiles – they’re sustainable in other ways too. Most porcelain is made from natural materials and doesn’t need chemical treatments and staining like many natural wood floors. They’re great for buildings and the people inside them – with no VoC emissions, high recycled content and the potential to contribute towards environmental certifications like LEED, Breeam and Ska.
