Tiles For an Open Plan Space

People often make the mistake of having different types of flooring in an open plan downstairs space. They may have tiles in the kitchen, then wood in the dining and seating area. Not only does this leave an ugly join, but you break up the space that you actually want to be open and flowing. Flooring makes an impact in your house, and it makes a big impact in a big space.

Extra Large Floor Tiles in the Bathroom

Tiling is a fairly traditional choice of floor covering in a bathroom, and for good reason. Modern bathrooms feature large bathroom wall tiles too, so it’s not just the floor that can be catered for.

Ideal In Showers

Bathrooms are busy spaces and high in moisture, whether steam or water.

If you are currently living with a bathroom that was tiled many years ago, you will be surprised how tiling has moved on.

Bathroom tiling is now very durable and slip resistant in a wide range of colours and materials.

You can even choose a nice modern style with a sparkly finish. If you don’t need the additional expense of a new bathroom, you will find a tiling solution to match your current bathroom suite.

Your kitchen is a busy room and, whether you entertain a lot or have an active family, it receives a lot of visitors.

It also receives a lot of spills. So you need a flooring that can survive a lot, be easy to clean but still look good.

Whatever the size of your kitchen, a tiled floor is a definite winner.

It looks stylish and elegant without looking too sterile and cold. Choose your floor tiles in proportion to the size of your kitchen.

If you have a large space, our large format tiles look fantastic and make your floor a great feature.

Floor Tiles in the Entrance Hall

People often associate tiling in an entrance hall with the Edwardian and Victorian style of tiles. You either love them or hate them, but they certainly distort our ideas of entrance hall tiles.

In general, large tiles make a space look bigger and small tiles make a space seem cramped and busy. This is why some of this old style tiling has such an impact on an often narrow space.

If this has put you off having tiles in the entrance hall then think again. Pale coloured large format tiles, in either ceramic or porcelain, will make this space seem bright and airy. The tiles will stand up to a lot of wear and tear from muddy boots and paws and they are easy to clean.

Underfloor Heating

A kitchen is a great space to have underfloor heating. Especially if it is a large open plan area that stretches into the living area. Underfloor heating works well under a tiled floor. You just need a flat surface before putting down the underfloor heating but this can easily be achieved with a self-levelling mix.
