How are wood effect tiles different from real wood flooring?

Wood effect tiles are completely different from real wood flooring, however, they can look and feel very similar at first glance. Real wood flooring is susceptible to scratches and water damage, which means it requires ongoing maintenance to keep it looking its best.

Wood effect tiles are typically made from porcelain and mimic the appearance of real wood. Most styles are completely waterproof and very hard-wearing. This means you do not need to sand or treat the wood on a regular basis. It also means they are suitable for use outside.
