How to use Traditional Tiles to make a Statement
Take to the floor with traditional tiles this season. Timeless, stylish, versatile, enduring and eternally appealing, you can’t really go wrong with using traditional tiles in your home design scheme, especially when used in a distinctive way to stand out and make a statement.
Whether you’re decorating a hallway, bathroom, kitchen, utility room or cloakroom, traditional tiles are a great way to create a clean, fresh look that suits both your style and space – from contemporary kitchens, to traditional bathrooms, minimalist spaces, maximalist rooms and everything in between.
For example, you can pair dark-toned metro tiles with white grout, brass fittings and house plants for a stylish update, or try matching patterned Victorian tiles with matching border tiles for a scheme that exudes class, style and sophistication.
As popular now as when they were first introduced, the original Victorian tile format meticulously combines hundreds of individual tiles into one overall pattern - making use of a range of geometric shapes and colours to create an eye-catching statement feature. Taking inspiration from this technique, our Victorian Heritage Collection is available in four colour options and allows you achieve that classic, beautiful Victorian style in your own home.
Each colourway combines classic colour combinations that will work well against today’s modern palettes and trends. Opt for subtle greys with a hint of orange, earthy on-trend terracotta tones or moody blues amongst white to create an effortlessly elegant flooring feature.
Natural stone tiles have been used in design schemes for as long as tiles have been around. Limestone floor tiles offer multi-format tiles sizes for an exciting floor design, marble tiles offer a touch of luxury and elegance, while slate provides more of a rustic, warming look. Our collection of Natural Stone Tiles ranges from marble and limestone, to sandstone and slate.
Another traditional tile that has enduring popularity is the classic quarry tile. Our range of Quarry Tiles can be used for indoor and outdoor use for both floor and wall use. Similar to terracotta, it has a naturally warm aesthetic and low-maintenance material properties. Create a seamless look that works beautifully indoors and outside, for that lovely unbroken view that will make your home and garden look bigger and create visual continuity.
It’s safe to say that traditional tiles will never go out of fashion! From creating a timeless look to adding a unique twist, traditional tiles can be utilised in a number of ways to complete your dream design scheme.
