Porcelain Wood Effect Tiles vs. Real Wood: The Ultimate Comparison

The luxury of wood is timeless, and it’s easy to see why wood has been the go-to material for centuries. The warm tones and natural texture offer an elegant look you can’t find anywhere else.

Although many people choose natural wood for their homes, there are some rooms, such as kitchens, where natural wood isn’t as suitable.

However, with a great selection of porcelain wood-effect tiles, you can now benefit from both the tile’s durability and the wood’s warming effect.

This post looks at the key differences between wood effect porcelain tiles and natural wood to help you decide which is best for you.

Porcelain Wood Effect Tiles

Wood effect tiles are a great alternative to natural wood. They look exactly like real wood, but because they’re made from porcelain, they’re far more durable and less prone to damage than natural wood would be in a kitchen.

Wood effect porcelain tiles come in a wide range of styles and colours, so you’ll be able to find one that matches your needs perfectly.

Real Wood Flooring

Real wood flooring is stunning when installed correctly using a quality product. It can add a real depth of warmth and charm to any room, and despite being a natural material, it is generally very durable and long-lasting.

Unlike tiles, real wood flooring isn’t suitable for every room and needs to be properly cared for by ensuring that it’s sealed properly and cleaned carefully without harsh chemicals that can damage the wood.

If you’re looking for a flooring option that gives your home the look and feel of natural wood without maintenance, wood effect tiles are an excellent choice.

Our Lancaster Wood-effect porcelain tiles are just like any other tile–they can be installed in any pattern or colour scheme you choose and offer the best of both worlds – plus, you’ll never know the difference between these and the real thing.
