Flooring Wars: Timber vs Tiles

Flooring Wars: Timber vs Tiles feature

Tiles and floorboards are two of the most popular choices for living areas, so it really is going to depend on personal choice – and of course, how much money you have to spend.

So which will win the battle for home ground at your new home? It’s a tough match: the top Ts of the flooring game both have considerable strengths!

Here’s what you need to know before cementing your decision.

Tiles

  • Can withstand ‘wear and tear’, making them a popular choice for family homes
  • Cost much less than timber
  • Easy to clean
  • Can easily be cut to fit in awkwardly shaped areas
  • Can be laid in high-moisture areas like the bathroom and even around the pool
  • Are often colder to walk on than timber floors

Timber flooring

  • Generally higher maintenance: you need to think about cleaning them the right way
  • In upstairs areas, timber floors can be noisy for the people downstairs
  • Show dirt and dust, so need to be cleaned often
  • Feel nicer under your feet
  • Give a ‘homely’ effect
  • Not recommend for ‘high moisture’ areas like the bathroom

Before making the final decision for your new home, remember to consider costs, maintenance, room traffic and moisture levels.
