Add in­stant warmth with wood-look tiles

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO FEATURE -

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!
