A-Z of Tiling L is for Large Format Tiles

Wednesday 3 February 2016, Written by


The trend for upsizing has been around for a while: think big kitchen appliances like fridges and range cookers, combining kitchens and dining rooms into one large space, large windows and bifold doors to link outside spaces to inside. Large sized tiles for walls and floors are also enjoying huge popularity and look very much at home in these large spaces (large format tiles are classed as 600 x 300mm and over).

Here are a few reasons to choose larger format tiles from our Tileworks, Glassworks and Earthworks Collections for your next tiling project:

  • Large format tiles can make rooms like kitchens and bathrooms look bigger - fewer and narrower grout lines give a sleek finish
  • You need fewer tiles, resulting in faster installation
  • The choice is huge, from porcelain tiles with realistic effects of natural stone, metal and concrete finishes, and real natural stone such as marble andlimestone
  • Glass tiles and splashbacks are a brilliant way of reflecting light around a kitchen
  • Large format tiles can be used on walls or floors. In fact they look even better when teamed together on both surfaces
