The Benefits of Large Format Tiles

1. An easy to coordinate large format tile brings a sense of elegance to any room throughout the home.

2. This sophisticated, fuss free tile trend provides a sleek, continuous look due to fewer grout lines than a smaller tile option, thus creating a seamless finish. 

3. Porcelain & ceramic tile options are available in an array of colours.

4. Radiating modern style, large floor & wall tiles can now be found with wood effect, concrete & stone looks. 

5. Large format tiles provide the illusion of space.

6. Large format tiles are most often made of porcelain, making them more durable and robust – Ideal for floors! 

Top Tips for Tiling with Large Format Tiles

1. A powder adhesive is needed when using a large format porcelain tile as a chemical reaction is needed in order for the adhesive to dry.

2. We recommend using a 12mm thick Hardie Backer board on the wall before laying large format tiles and a 6mm thick Hardie Backer board on the floor.
