Concrete look tiles is the latest trend in home design
On every renovating show and DIY program, concrete tiles are appearing with increasing frequency. Often used to create a warehouse chic vibe, an industrial effect, or even as a neutral feature within a room, concrete tiles are the latest flooring craze.
For years the unique aggregate look and sturdy durability of real concrete has been unsuccessfully replicated after years of trying with a range of materials. However, thanks to advances in technology, a concrete look tile that is indistinguishable from the real thing has finally been developed. The latest development is a highly glazed porcelain tiles with a concrete print that looks fantastic and is sturdy and durable.
Comes In Classic Colours
Tile Wizards has a beautiful new range of concrete look tiles, Cement 2.0. These tiles are available in a range of classic colours and are the closest tile on the market to real cement tiles.
Benefits of Cement 2.0 Tiles
There are many benefits to using concrete look tiles over actual concrete. For one, once glazed porcelain tiles are laid there is no more maintenance and sealing required other than general cleaning. Polished concrete has to be resealed once a year!
Concrete look tiles are considerably cheaper than laying actual concrete flooring. Due to the complicated process, it can cost up to $100 a square meter to lay polished concrete flooring, which adds up to a considerable cost once you’ve finished the whole floor.
Concrete is also incredibly heavy. Its weight makes it not an option for most homes to have it upstairs. Tiles are infinitely lighter, making it a much more viable option for most people to use in their homes.
Time is always an issue when choosing to lay polished concrete. It can take up to a week to complete the concrete laying process. If you are doing a quick renovation where you are short on time, this generally rules out polished concrete as an option. Laying concrete look tiles, however, is only a couple of day process, allowing you to keep moving with your renovation quickly.
Not Just For Flooring
Concrete look tiles aren’t just a flooring tile; they can be used in whatever capacity you desire. Floor to ceiling concrete look tiles in a shower, for example, look absolutely fantastic.
