Leigh Price, Co-Director of Real Stone and Tile provides his expert opinion on wood-effect tiles for outside living areas

As we finally wave goodbye to the winter months and our head turns to the thought of warm summer nights, (hopefully!) we look at how you can transform your outdoor area with the use of wood-effect tiles

Whilst real wood has become a desirable aesthetic to incorporate into your outdoor living area, it also demands regular maintenance and care to prevent it becoming tarnished from bad weather.

Wood-effect tiles give you the ability to create the same stunning design, without the high price and the pressure of annual upkeep.

These stunning, non-slip porcelain tiles imitate the natural characteristics of real wood, so much so that they will dupe you into thinking they are!

Unlike wooden floor boards, porcelain tiles won't warp or dry out in the heat, which makes them the perfect for outdoor entertaining areas. And furthermore, because they're water-resistant if you spill a drink, the tiles will not stain, and it will be easy to clean-up – ideal for any summer parties you may be planning!

Here at Real Stone & Tile, we supply a stunning range a wood-effect tiles from luxury Italian tile brand, Flaviker. The wood-effect range features a variety of shapes and colours so you can find the perfect design for you.
