Porcelain Paving That Looks Like Floorboards

Posted on 22nd June 2022

Wooden floorboards are an age-old flooring choice for homes and other buildings across the world and have been used since as far back as the 1600s. However, with their beauty comes many limitations and a considerable amount of maintenance.

While wooden flooring is a popular choice for the home, often it limits how freely you can carry out day to day activities. There is always the worry of wearing the wrong pair of shoes and causing scratches, moving furniture around, and cleaning up spills and stains.

As well as this, wooden floorboards require regular waxing and cleaning, which can end up being a highly demanding task when carried out frequently. Plus, you need to ensure you use wood-safe cleaning products and chemicals so you don’t damage the flooring.

The same goes for wooden decking floorboards outside the home. Wooden decking is an extremely popular choice to create a layered effect in your garden and a dedicated space to either relax or entertain guests.

So, what if there was a flooring solution that achieves the traditional aesthetic of wood flooring without all the hassle? At Porcelain Paving Direct, there is! We invite you to check out our Hard collection of porcelain paving slabs that mimic wooden floorboards perfectly.

We have a range of wood effect porcelain paving tiles that boast a classic wood effect and have all the benefits of porcelain flooring. We have four beautiful shades available, so no matter what look you are envisioning, it can be achieved with the choice we have.

Our wood effect slabs are carefully manufactured using a number of clays, sands, and other minerals and heated at a high temperature to provide a high quality, durable, non-porous, and scratch, stain, and slip resistant surface.

Using inkjet printing technology the desired effect is then printed onto the tile. When it comes to creating wood effect porcelain paving, every knot and grain line is imitated to give a completely realistic look. You almost wouldn’t be able to tell the difference!

All of our porcelain paving slabs are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. They are non-porous and manufactured with an R11 anti-slip finish, which makes them particularly perfect for applications in bathrooms, kitchens, and conservatories.

The thickness of porcelain paving also gives added durability for longevity in outdoor conditions. Therefore, enjoy the aesthetic of wooden decking without the problems and maintenance that come with the real stuff.
