Bringing Innovation into Design with Timber-look Tile

As an architect or specifier, you are always on the lookout for eco-friendly and innovative products that also last the test of time with exceptional lifecycle costings.

One such product that is making waves in the industry is timber Porcelain. With high quality digital imagery, the porcelain planks are 100% realistic with wood-grain patterns and are the preferred acceptable solution for the whole house under E/3.

We all know wood and water are not an ideal combination so Porcelain with 0.5% water absorption or less is extremely durable and is low maintenance so it's no wonder that more and more architects are turning to this innovative material for their projects.

One of the most exciting aspects of timber-look tile is the variety of ways it can be used in both residential and commercial settings. From flooring to accent walls and even outdoor spaces, timber-look tile can create a warm and inviting atmosphere that seamlessly blends the natural beauty of wood with the durability of porcelain tile.

An innovative way to incorporate timber-look tile is by creating a unique feature wall. Whether it's in a living room, dining area, or even a bedroom, a timber-look tile accent wall can add a touch of rustic charm to any space. With a wide variety of wood-grain patterns and colours available, you can easily create a custom look that complements the rest of your design.

Of course, the most common use for timber-look tile is in flooring. With its realistic wood-grain patterns, timber-look tile can create the same warm and inviting atmosphere as traditional hardwood floors and is more compatible with underfloor heating options. It can also be installed throughout the whole house, including wet areas! It is growing in popularity for spaces such as kitchens and laundries, as well as bathrooms due to immediate acceptance under NZ’s updated E3/AS1 building code as a fully compliant finish.

In addition, unlike wood, tile is easy to clean and won't scratch or dent, making it an excellent choice for high-traffic areas or homes with pets.

On top of its aesthetic and practical qualities, timber-look tile is also an eco-friendly choice. Unlike traditional wood, which requires cutting down trees, timber-look tile is made from sustainable, clay-based materials and can be recycled at the end of its lifecycle. Designed to be a modern take on hardwood floors, this tile trend has innovated to accurately resemble traditional timber and inspired a variety of looks with a range of sizes, colours and finishes now available.

In conclusion, timber-look tile is an excellent choice for creating warm and inviting spaces, both indoors and out. With its realistic wood-grain patterns, durability, and low-maintenance qualities, it's no wonder that more and more architects, specifiers and designers are incorporating this innovative material into their projects.
