1.Sustainability & Longevity
High quality tiles that are laid correctly can last decades in your home, so they’re a great option if you don’t want to be renovating every five years! Concrete is a classic look that is easy to accessorise as trends change, making it the perfect flooring if you have a hard time choosing between the blue couch with the wooden table or the pink lounge with the glass table. Tiles also have low environmental effects so you can rest easy about their impact.

Looking for a blank canvas to decorate with? Concrete-look tiles can be used in any room of the home to create a truly cohesive design. The simplicity of concrete-look also matches seamlessly with any other textile you might want to bring into your house. Whether that is a feature pattern, wooden accessories, marble bench tops, bright colours or anything else you can think of, concrete will match it without looking overdone.

3. Easy Care
Concrete-look tiles are as low maintenance as they come. Let’s face it, the most they need (and you have time for) is a weekly mop and they will be content for years to come. You don’t have to be worried about sand getting tracked through the house after the kids have been at the beach, or mud following the dog as it runs through the house, or guests excitedly telling a story and knocking some red wine, all can be cleaned up with a quick wipe and without any fuss.

Tiles already produce more heat than authentic concrete flooring, and under tile heating is quicker and cheaper to install and run due to the difference in floor thickness. Concrete-look tiles also stay cooler than timber flooring or carpet in summer, making them an all year round cost saver. Our extra expert tip? The smooth service will also amp up any natural light that enters a space (by up to 30% if you choose a glossy finish).

5. Installation and Cost
Authentic concrete is very time consuming to install, and the cost can add up quite quickly. Concrete-look tiles are bought ready to install, without the need for temperamental treatments to achieve your ideal finish – the perfect option if you want to take the guesswork out of your renovation.
