ALTERNATIVES TO TIM­BER

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style Decorating -

Thanks to new print­ing tech­nol­ogy, wood grains can now be repli­cated on porce­lain, cre­at­ing wood-ef­fect tiles that are al­most in­dis­tin­guish­able from nat­u­ral tim­ber. They don’t warp, stain or need seal­ing, and they’re eas­ier to clean than wooden floor­boards. ‘They’re also frost­proof, so you can con­tinue the same floor­ing out­side to cre­ate deck­ing,’ ex­plains Jamie Robb, owner and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Marl­bor­ough Tiles Mak­ers. Here are our top three.
