With tile effect laminate, the stylish and sleek look of ceramic tile, porcelain and slate can easily be achieved for a fraction of the cost of the real thing. The subtly textured designs and intricate bevelled edges will fool most into thinking they are standing on real ceramic tiles. Imagine what it takes to fit real tiles? Generally the floor needs levelling using screed, then there is the adhesive, not to mention the difficult job of installing underfloor heating under real tiles. When the tiling is finished you need to grout and polish as well. Contrast this with tile effect laminate, where all you need is a good quality underlay, the heating is far simpler to install and the laminate is laid on top.
One of the biggest benefits of laminate tile flooring is, unlike ceramic or stone, they don't feel as cold under your feet. Of course this depends on whether you have underfloor heating, but even without it tile laminate is much kinder underfoot. Unlike some tiles, with its textured finish it is also not slip and won't crack.
It is far cheaper to cover a floor in tile laminate rather than user real tiles. When you consider teh materials needed to tile a floor, as stated above, from the adhesive to the grout, the only ones needed for a laminate version is the material itself and a good underlay. You can buy laminate beading or scotia for around the edges perfect finish and you may still want to use a professional.
