Add instant warmth with wood-look tiles
Wood-look planks feature prominently in Tile Africa Empangeni’s winter promotion, and it’s clear to see why.
Wood has a way of instantly adding warmth to a room, making you want to curl up in front of a fireplace with a good book.
Wooden floors are still as exquisite as they were centuries ago, but in modern times the look is much easier to achieve.
Advanced digital inkjet technology allows for a wooden look to be recreated on porcelain and ceramic tiles.
Inkjet printing gives realistic and detailed patterned finishes, allowing every tile to be different.
The result is tiles that look exactly like wood and natural stone.
The tiles are also shaped like wooden planks, varying in sizes between 150mm x 800mm and 200mm x 1000mm.
Why choose tiles instead of real wood? Wooden flooring adds elegance and warmth to a home, but requires intensive care and maintenance.
Real wood is also easily damaged, especially in areas of high foot traffic and in rooms where water is used, such as kitchens and bathrooms. The damages are very costly to repair. Another factor to consider is the price of wood nowadays. Tiles are much more cost effective, and more readily available – just visit Tile Africa Empangeni!
