Agree Dinesen is stunning but You'll be looking at anything between £100 -£500 per metre. Wanted the single length (10m planks )in my gaff but would've eaten up too much of our budget Sad

Wood effect tiles Phil!

Have a look at this:



Cannot tell you how realistic it is. Plus its got all the added benefits of being Italian Porcelain (ie doesn't warp, no maintenance whatsoever…)

Let me know if you want a sample Eye-wink

Those wood effect tiles look awful, like something you'd buy from Firebox

I have seen mixed width flooring in a few places. If it suits the space and the finish is not too contrived, it looks great. If the room is small, it can look quite fussy.

Clearview for woodburners. End of.

cheers mate, I dont think clearview do a double sided version?

Flooring wise I want something rustic. Saw a nice one at the weekend at a local place, it was 78 per sqm plus fitting, most expensive in the place Sad waiting for a price back.

Probably not the best picture figurine. Better ones here www.emilceramica.it/en/collections/millelegni/

But if you're looking for something more rustic…

I don't think they do. Shame as they are excellent in terms of performance and build quality.

For rustic floors, have you looked at reclaimed? If you shop around, it can be quite reasonable and it will look far more . With all due respect to Sam, I don't think tiles no matter how realistic they look could ever compare to the look and particularly the feel of a good solid wood floor.

Cheers for the suggestions Cool

Agree reclaimed looks great, its just sourcing some, theres a good rec place near mine but pretty sure they all come as is then need sanding/cleaning/finishing which is added time/cost

Okay didn't mean to put all….but we've seen a massive increase in popularity over the last year or so. All the technical benefits help obviously. Have you seen good quality wood effect tiles when laid though?

Agreed, Dinesen and similar are beautiful but way out of most peoples budget.
