The marble trend
If you’re looking for ideas for your wall and floor spaces, one surface trend immediately springs to mind – marble! The idea of ‘bringing the outdoors in’ and creating a natural scheme in your home have been popular for a while now – but marble is by far the hottest and most desired stone.
Its characterful veining instantly adds timeless personality to an interior space. There’s something about marble that just adds an instant grandness to a wall or floor space – probably because marble has been used in palaces and castles for thousands of years.

An introduction to marble effect tiles
One problem with natural marble is that it’s costly. Another is that it requires treatment and maintenance and that it stains and marks fairly easily – like all-natural stones. That’s where marble effect tiles come in handy. They’re a durable alternative to natural marble, and they cost a fraction of the price! I’ve put together a list of the top 10 marble effect tiles, so you can rest assured you’re getting a super-stylish option…
1) Designer Look: Deluxe Gold Leaf Ultra Gloss White Marble Effect Tiles
Make the ultimate opulent statement in your home with Deluxe Gold Leaf Ultra Gloss White Marble Effect Tiles, a striking marble effect design with bold veins of gold and grey and rectified edges for a sleek, seamless look that’s sure to be the envy of everyone.
2) Natural Elegance: Pinoso Marble Effect Seashell Tiles
If you’re looking for something a little less dramatic, then our Pinoso Marble Effect Seashell Tiles are a perfect choice. Designed in a soft beige hue, they have a subtle marble effect design with a shimmering gloss finish.
