If you’re tiling your wall or floor spaces this season, you can’t go wrong with porcelain tiles! They’re extremely hard wearing and durable, and them come in hundreds of different shapes, sizes and styles. Here are our top 10 designs…
1) Oak Tiles
First up in our countdown of porcelain beauties is the Oak Tile! This floor tile has a realistic wood effect design, which is perfect for creating the natural look in an interior area. Wooden floors have never been more popular, but the problem with natural wood is that is scratches easily and requires ongoing sanding and waxing. Porcelain tiles provide a sturdy, zero maintenance alternative.
2) Coast Stone Effect Tiles
Another tile that’s ideal for creating the natural look in the room of your choosing is the Oyster Tile, from our range of Coast Tiles. It has a realistic stone effect design in a light grey hue, and is perfect for introducing a soothing, calming, spa-styled scheme into a bathroom, bedroom or lounge. It can be used on both wall and floor spaces.
3) Hexa Cube 3D Tiles
Pattern tiles have grown in popularity over the last few years. Now, geometric designs are the most desirable, such as these Hexa Cube 3D Tiles. These porcelain tiles have a raised cubic design and are ideal for creating a striking focal point in a kitchen or living room. They can be used on both walls and floors; making for a fab statement floor or eye-catching feature wall.
4) Vintage Wood Plank Tiles
Because porcelain tiles are frost proof and practically waterproof, they are perfect for use outdoors! In fact, whereas natural wood used to be used to create a decked patio area, now people are turning to porcelain wood effect tiles instead! Why? Because they’re easier to clean, they don’t require treatment, and they stay in a better condition for much longer. Try one of the anti-slip options from our range of Vintage Wood Plank Tiles.
5) Elegante Marble Effect Tiles
As we mentioned earlier, the idea of ‘creating the natural look’ in your home is a huge design trend! Out of all the natural stones available, marble is by far the most desirable. Probably due to its characterful veining, which instantly gives a wall or floor surface some personality. Porcelain tiles, such as Elegante Marble Effect Tiles, are a cost-effective alternative to the real deal.
6) Bijou Hexagon Mosaic Tiles
Combine two style icons – the hexagon and the mosaic – and you’ve got a winning formula. That has been proven time and time again by our Bijou Hexagon Mosaic Tiles. Made from durable porcelain, these white hexagon mosaics have a subtle matt finish and come on an easy-to-cut mesh backing. Use them to quickly and easily add style to a wall or floor space. To really highlight the shape, try a contrasting anthracite grout.
7) Reclaimed Wood Effect Tiles
Whilst we’re talking about interior design trends, let’s touch on a biggy – reclaimed wood. Walk around any home show and you’ll see an abundance of reclaimed wooden surfaces – repurposed wood that has been salvaged from one existence, and adapted into another. Often bits will be painted, and some will be rough whilst others will be smooth. This mish-mash of finishes and textures is what makes it so characterful and desirable. Our Reclaimed Wood Effect Tiles have a very lifelike reclaimed look, and are perfect for bringing any floor space to life.
8) Maalem Decor Tiles
Remember the pattern trend we mentioned earlier? Whilst geometrics are one popular take on this look, colourful patchworks are another, and none look more striking or stylish than these Arabesque / Moroccan themed Maalem Decor Tiles. Because they’re made from porcelain, they’re sturdy enough to be used on both walls and floors, so you can transform a room from top to bottom!
9) Reclaimed Wood Split Face Tiles
We love wall tiles with texture. Textured surfaces are where it’s at, in terms of injecting interest into wall spaces. They’re a welcome break from plain, smooth tiles. These Reclaimed Wood Split Face Tiles combine a staggered, multi-levelled, textured look with the characterful reclaimed wood trend we spoke about earlier. They will effortlessly create a room-stealing feature wall in any bathroom, living area, dining room or bedroom.
10) Kuala Slate Effect Porcelain Tiles
If you love the natural look, but you also want to invite some flavorful texture into your home, then slate effect tiles are probably the choice for you! Our Kuala Tiles have a riven anti-slip surface, with a lifelike slate effect design, which is ideal for creating a naturalistic floor space in any room throughout the home.
