The Benefits of Large Format Floor Tiles

Large format floor tiles have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their many styles and benefits. Typically larger than 600mm, large floor tiles have a variety of advantages over traditional floor tiles. From natural stone to marble-effect finishes, there truly is a large tile for any home! In this blog, we will discuss the benefits of larger floor tiles and why bigger really can be better.

Less Grout Lines

One of the most significant benefits of larger floor tiles is that they require fewer grout lines. This means that the tiles cover a larger area, giving a more seamless and contemporary look to your space. If this is something you’re looking to achieve, then take a look at our Realstone Greige Tiles to create that smooth, modern feel across your floors. Fewer grout lines also make it easier to clean and reduces the potential for mould and mildew growth.

Versatility in Design

Thanks to their size, large format floor tiles offer a wide range of design options, and can be used to create a variety of aesthetics with their different textures and finishes. Additionally, they can mimic the look of natural stone, wood, marble or concrete effect materials, giving you the ability to create a unique and customised look in your space. Here at CTD, we have a generous range of large floor tiles to fit perfectly alongside any interior scheme. For those looking to create a spa-like feel in the bathroom, why not consider our Marmori Calacatta White Polished Tile? The marble effect can create a beautiful and serene backdrop to both morning and evening routines.

Bringing Spaces Together

Whether you have a contemporary or traditional home, open-plan living has become a sought after design choice, gifting homeowners the illusion of a bigger and brighter scheme. If this is something you’re considering or perhaps you already have an open-plan space, make sure to incorporate some large format floor tiles for a free-flowing feel. The large surface and the minimal grout lines will blend all the different zones and living areas together immaculately, breathing a sense of spaciousness into the home. Our British Stone Antracite Tiles create this look perfectly, providing a smooth and sophisticated edge to open-plan living.

Durability and Longevity

Thanks to their hard-wearing, porcelain surface, large format floor tiles are expected to last a good while. Porcelain is typically known for its durability and resistance to wear and tear, making it ideal for areas with heavy footfall. The tiles are also resistant to stains, scratches, and heat, making them a long-lasting investment for your home.

Practical Large Format Tiles

Easy Maintenance

Ideal for wet areas and bathrooms, large format floor tiles are also resistant to moisture, making them the perfect choice for use in wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. Unlike traditional tiles, these types of tiles do not require frequent re-grouting, which can save you both time and money in the long run. But, if you’re still concerned about your grout lines, then why not consider grouting with a black sealant? As seen here, the black grouting complements the Kursaal Tiles well and allows spaces like wet rooms to be maintained a lot easier.

Offering an array of benefits making them an attractive option for homeowners whilst providing a stylish edge to the home, there are multiple reasons why large floor tiles are a little more practical than your average-sized traditional tile.
