The trouble with natural wood

Natural wooden flooring is highly desired right now and many of us have floorboards lurking just beneath our carpets and our lino. But there are a couple of problems with natural wooden floor boards. Firstly, when we rip up our carpets or our lino, we’ll find that our floorboards are discoloured and covered in filth. They need sanding down, and waxing. This takes an enormous amount of time, effort and money. And after all of that, we then arrive at our second dilemma; wooden floors mark extremely easily. Pull a metal chair leg across one, and it’s scratched for life. Not only that, but they are quite bland - they look how they look, and we're stuck with the shape and size of the plank, and the type of wood it's made from.

The solution? Wood Effect Tiles from Walls and Floors. They’re more durable than wood. They’re more environmentally friendly – no trees are cut down to produce them. And they allow for another interior trend – Underfloor Tile Heating.

Which wood effect tiles to choose?

So we've established Walls and Floors have a huge selection of Wood Effect Tiles, but which should you actually go for? Well, if you're looking for something lifelike, they don’t come any more realistic than the Oak Effect Tile below! It has a highly detailed wood design on its skin, and it’s textured too; with knots and crevices in the surface of the tile, exactly like natural wood.
