Established in 1987, we have a vast selection of on-trend floor tiles to choose from here at Walls and Floors. That’s why we’ve created this ebook; to narrow down the selection by showing you 10 of the very best...
1) Suar Wood Effect Tiles

2) Ledbury Tiles
Many of us dream of having our very own vintage escape, which explains the resurgence of encaustic tiles. They consist of coloured clay shapes fired onto a cement base, and they’re synonymous with period buildings.

The natural look is popular for two reasons - not only does it add a bit of luxury to a room, but it also helps to create a soothing, relaxing scheme.
Carrara marble is one of the most sought after natural stones due to its stunning contrasting veining. However, it can be a little expensive, and it also requires ongoing treatment and maintenance.
