Graphic Patterns

Graphic patterned tiles have grown in popularity this year and we don’t see that stopping anytime soon. From patterned metro tiles to hexagon tiles, its safe to say that graphic tiles can be used anywhere from bathroom splashbacks to bathroom floors. Why not use your imagination to create an interesting placement for the tiles.

Geometric patterned tiles look stunning on either the floor or walls in bathrooms. They are available in brilliant bold colours or subtle shades that will make you never want to leave.

Matt Tiles

Matt vs Gloss?

Matt tiles have an understated yet powerful style. They are the ideal tile for bathroom floors and walls because upon contact with water, the droplets do not remain like with glossy tiles. Matt tiles also tend to have better anti-slip properties so are great for high traffic bathrooms.

Metro Tiles

Metro tiles are often thought as being boring and overused but we disagree. Despite their simplicity, these classic tiles are as popular as ever. With so many colours to choose from and available in different sizes, metro wall tiles are perfect for bathrooms. If you are wanting to add a bit of drama then why not consider combining these brick shaped tiles with a contrasting grout color. If you are really creative you could even combine a variety of colours or mix plain metro tiles with patterned metro tiles to create a wonderful mosaic wall in your bathroom.

Hexagon tiles

Are you looking to create a unique look in your bathroom? In addition to playing with colours and sizes hexagon tiles allow you to play with shape. Hexagon tiles are one of 2021’s greatest bathroom tile trends, you can use them to create bold graphic patterns on bathroom floors or create a feature wall. And to make it even better our range of hexagon tiles include patterned tiles.

Wood Effect Tiles

Wood in the bathroom? But won’t it rot? Our wood effect tiles are created to withstand water and splashes making them ideal in the bathroom. Tiles with wood effect textures create a sense of nature and will give your bathroom a feel of relaxation.

Marble Tiles

Natural marble is a high-quality, expensive material known for being luxurious and our marble effect tiles emulate this perfectly. Due to modern technology we can now create marble tiles in a wide variety of colours with different veining colours. 2021 has seen a return to soft coloured marble such as whites and golds. If you are looking to create a luxurious look on a reasonable budget you should definitely consider marble effect tiles.

Textured Tiles

If you are looking for bathroom tile ideas then textured tiles might be the perfect answer. They add depth to the room with their three dimensional qualities and are great for rooms that get wet. Flooring that has texture is considered safer as it is less slippery than polished surfaces.
