As we continue our look into “look tiles”, this month we are featuring concrete. We hear you ask; ‘why would you want tiles that look like concrete when you can have actual concrete?’
Concrete look tiles are an ideal way to get an industrial or warehouse look in your home or business, with the opportunity to choose your own finishes, tones and styles.
If we have you intrigued, make your way into the Myaree Ceramics showroom to see the tiles for yourself, or read on for more insight into these versatile tiles.
What Are Concrete Look Tiles?
As the name suggests, concrete look tiles are manufactured with new digital technology to look and even feel like poured concrete.
Much like wood look tiles and stone look tiles, concrete look tiles are made from porcelain or ceramic. During the manufacturing process, these tiles can be finished off with the earthy, textured finish of concrete or with a smooth anti-slip finish, which is part of their allure.
Benefits of Concrete Look Tiles
If you’re looking to replicate the raw, earthy feel of concrete without having to worry about pouring the concrete, having it leveled and sealing the surface, then concrete tiles are a great solution.
Concrete look tiles are much lighter than real concrete and can, therefore, be more easily used indoors and outdoors and can be sealed to suit the environment.
For around pools or in wet areas, concrete look tiles in an anti-slip finish can be used. The tiles can also be used on walls, making them an ideal way to create that industrial chic look in your bathroom.
Laying concrete tiles is also a much quicker process than laying actual concrete, so you can save substantial time and money on hiring tradespeople. There’s also a lot less work involved in maintaining concrete tiles, as they don’t crack, and can have different shade variations.
Wide Range of Colours and Styles
Your run-of-the-mill concrete isn’t nearly as customisable as concrete look tiles; concrete tiles come in a range of colours, tones, sizes and styles, allowing you to seamlessly integrate your new tiles with your home decor.
Durability and Maintenance
While concrete is a hardy substance, it still requires finishes and maintenance to keep it looking good, such as concrete needs sealing, grinding and polishing. You will need to polished concrete re-sealed once a year.
With concrete tiles, the only maintenance will be the occasional sweep – if you have children, the sweeping might be more frequent!
Concrete look tiles are also a great choice for high-traffic areas of your home, with the correct finish making it durable and long-lasting.
