I is for Inkjet Print Technology

We don't normally get too technical on these pages but we are making an exception in this week's Style File. It considers ink jet printing, which is probably not the first thing you think about when you think about tiles!  It's worth knowing that continued advances and innovation in the technology means that you can now choose tiles made from porcelain that look and feel almost like the real thing. All the tiles shown below have one thing in common - they are all made from porcelain but closely resemble natural materials like wood, travertine, limestone and other natural stone, and various metals.  You don't have to worry about a tile looking exactly like is neighbour either, as often colour options come in several versions which avoids repeating patterns and gives an even more convincing final result.
