Flooring wooden tiles

Choosing the right flooring plays a crucial role in designing a space. Often the question arises whether wood or no wood should be laid. Especially with wooden tiles, there are models that are almost identical to a real wooden floor and can hardly be distinguished.

Cozy look of a wooden floor

Wooden tiles are just the thing for someone who appreciates the warm, cozy look of a wooden floor, but at the same time does not want to do without the easy care of conventional tiles. Wood tiles are so-called “mixed tiles”. The name comes from the different processed materials such as ceramics, stoneware, stoneware or porcelain stoneware. The mixture of the individual materials creates the beautiful look, which resembles a parquet floor or floorboards for the sake of confusion. As the name “wood tile” already reveals, it is inside a tile and outside a wood paneling.

The characteristics of wooden tiles:

They have the same technical characteristics of a flow and at the same time offer the beautiful warm tones and grains of real wood. The ceramic wood tiles differ in their appearance barely from a real parquet or floor boards and also offer countless possibilities in the design and are therefore not inferior to their model. The countless design templates of the wood tiles range from the stick-look, over herringbone pattern to the ship’s floor design. The look of various precious woods such as walnut or boxwood are available and can be laid as a wood tile cost in the home. For these beautiful wooden tiles not a single tree must be felled.

The dimensions of wooden tiles:

But not only countless designs are available from the wood tiles, but also many different sizes. They are often based on the dimensions of classic wooden floors. Thus, wood flows are available with a length of up to 120 centimeters. The widths range between 15 and 20 centimeters. Some models also have a typical tile width of 60 centimeters.

The advantages

  • especially easy to clean
  • very robust and durable
  • suitable for inside and outside (for example bathroom, terrace)
  • Water-repellent surface
  • high thermal conductivity and suitable for underfloor heating

The laying

Although wood tiles are visually similar to a parquet floor, they still have to be laid using tile adhesive. After installation, the joints between the wooden tiles should be sealed with silicone or joint mortar. In order to preserve the wood floor effect, the joints must be kept narrow.

The disadvantages

    • very expensive installation
    • Breakage or splintering possible
    • hard ride
    • do not feel like wood
