Do you want a high-end tile look in your home without a high price tag? Tile effect laminate flooring is the answer you’re looking for. It’s quickly becoming a go-to choice for budget-savvy homeowners, developers, and builders.
Let’s take a closer look at how you can spruce up your home and save some money with tile effect laminate flooring.
What Is Tile Effect Laminate Flooring?
It’s basically created the same way a regular wood effect laminate is, with the same desired effect: To create a high-quality floorboard that flawlessly captures the look of another material.
To create this type of laminate flooring, an ultra high-def image of a wood floor (or whatever material you’re shooting for) is expertly applied to a high-density fiberboard (HDF). Because of this, these boards can capture the look of:
The idea is always to give you the exact same look as a more expensive flooring option, without the high cost or high level of fragility.
Use it in the Kitchen
This is one of the most popular places you’ll see tile effect laminate flooring used. This is one of the most often renovated areas of the home because it’s an area that people spend a lot of time in. It’s also showcased a lot, as more often than not, house guests find their way to the kitchen.
That is why more people are choosing this durable and affordable alternative. They want something that’s going to look amazing, without costing them a fortune.
They also want something that’s going to continue to look amazing for years, without being ruined by a single chip or scratch. Traditional stone, wood, or ceramic tile can chip, scratch, or break, which leads to an expensive fix or unsightly scar.
Wood tiles actually open you up to even more problems. You already know they can warp and break, but you may not know about the problems that moisture can cause, like mold or rotting. This makes them a less than ideal choice for the kitchen.
Use it in the Living Room/Rec Room
Again, spending more money isn’t always going to give you the most value. For example, if you used wooden flooring in an area like a mudroom or entrance, it wouldn’t survive too many cold and wet winters. The moisture, cold, and wear and tear would destroy it in a hurry.
Tile effect laminate flooring can do a better job standing up to these conditions. And it can also stand up to the beating that young children can throw at it, so it’s very popular among parents.
