It may feel like only yesterday when your wooden decking was brand new, looking “fresh out the box”. 

However, times change and so do wood based decks. More times than not for all the wrong reasons. The worst part for many is that it is out of their control!

Here at The Online Tile Shop we provide products that will last you a lifetime. Our wood effect porcelain tile range does just that. They offer the same results as traditional decking but with a fraction of the maintenance. 

If this sounds of interest to you then below you will learn about why Wood Effect tiles are a great option for your outdoor decking. 

4 Reasons tiles are better than decking: 

Durability

Porcelain is a durable material. This is an important factor to consider. Keep in mind that British weather can be fairly unpredictable, so it’s better safe than sorry. 

Wood can be highly susceptible to the weather, showing signs of wear very easily. A lot of stress can be relieved when switching to porcelain. The strong finish gives your decking a longer lifespan compared to wood.

Our Oxford Multicolour is a great choice for your outdoor decking, the earthy tones really complement the great outdoors.

No Splinters 

Traditional decking, although it being traditional is not necessarily the safest option for outdoor decking. 

Wooden decking can bring stress and pain, here’s why: 

Splinters can cause a lot of pain for your family whether it be your child or dog. Nobody wants that. 

This is why wood effect tiles are so important when designing your deck. Their smooth finish eliminates any potential aches and pains (literally). 

The Meriadoc Haya option is great for the summer months, the lighter finish fits the bright aesthetics of your garden in the upcoming sunny months. 

Keeping Your Hands Clean

Designing your dream house can be an expensive process, however the results produced may make it even more worthwhile. 

Many people don’t consider potential future costs they may incur to keep their homes looking tip-top. 

Overtime wood will peel away due to moisture and temperature change. This means you have to reseal the decking. As a result you are left with less money and time due to maintenance. 

Varieties and Options

People enjoy having choices, you cannot deny it. 

Porcelain tiles have a wide range of options.

Whereas, wooden decking is limited in the colours and designs that are available. The only thing holding you back with porcelain tiles is your imagination. 

Whether you want to go for the Meriadoc Haya or the Meriadoc Grey we offer a free sample service, meaning you can make a final decision with absolute confidence!

We hope this blog has played a positive role for you and your upcoming project. 

Wooden effect porcelain tiles are really taking the world by storm and we want you to join the tide!

The tiles were a great price compared to other online retailers selling the same tiles. However, £30 for a DHL delivery seemed a bit expensive for a small order (approx 220 15x10cm tiles for a splashback).
