The number of UK homes that have underfloor heating has grown significantly over the last five years and it currently accounts for 7.7% of the UK’s heating systems, according to market researchers AMA Research.
It’s no wonder that this form of heating is gaining popularity as it feels so good underfoot! It has eco benefits, too. A radiator heats a room solely by convection, whereas heating that comes for the floor provides a mix of radiated heat and convection heat, which creates a comfortable and constant temperature throughout the room.
If you are looking to have underfloor heating installed, or if you are replacing the flooring where this kind of heating currently exists, it’s good to know that we’ve got tiles that are the perfect match at Miles Of Tiles!
Garda Vintage For Homely Wood Tones
Underfloor heating creates a cosy and homely environment, so why not enhance this through the aesthetics of your floor covering? The light tones in Garda Vintage Wood bring an earthy, rustic yet modern feel to your home. These wood effect tiles have a reclaimed, aged, weathered wood appearance featuring varying degrees of fade for a natural look. The designs vary from one tile to the next, allowing you to piece together a detailed display across any floor in your home.
While having the rustic appearance of real wood, these tiles are made from durable and hard-wearing porcelain. Unlike wood itself, these tiles don’t require any maintenance, and they’re scratch and stain resistant.
Oldwood – New Tiles For Underfloor Heating
Continuing the wood effect theme is our Oldwood range. Oldwood is a newly released wood effect tile that is suitable for underfloor heating and offers a warm alternative to other wooden floor options. They have quickly gained popularity as they offer the beauty of muted wood tones in a porcelain tile. Available in three different colour shades, the Oldwood Gris is a light grey, the Oldwood Natural Wood is a light brown, while the Oldwood Castano is a darker oak colour. These tiles have 15 different designs across each colour, with varying levels of graining to provide a natural and organic look, however you lay them. If you’re looking for a hard-wearing and beautiful alternative to wood-effect vinyl flooring, look no further than Oldwood.
The Gleam Of Galaxy For An Easy-To-Clean Sheen
Wood effect tiles can fit anywhere in your home though they are possibly best laid in living areas. The highly polished Galaxy series offer a surface best suited to bathrooms and kitchens. As well as offering an element of brightness to these spaces, the smooth sheen of the surface makes them easy to clean. The Galaxy Blanco Floor is a very pale grey and the Galaxy Gris Floor a darker mid grey. This porcelain tile offers great versatility, as it can be laid on floors and walls. When laid on floors, it’s good to know that it is suitable for use with underfloor heating!
