Marmi Nero is effortlessly chic, its black marble tones are great for those looking to add drama and character to a scheme. This deep-toned black marble-effect tile comes in three formats in two finishes; a gentle honed option with a realistic stone look and feel, a polished finish for a glossy, elegant look and a honed hexagon mosaic.   Statuario Nuovo Our Statuario Nuovo tiles are inspired by the world’s most premium Carrara marbles, featuring elegant veining in neutral tones of white and grey.

  2. The versatility of Tileworks – our collection of large format contemporary tiles

    The versatility of Tileworks – our collection of large format contemporary tiles Large-format tiles have grown in popularity over the last decade and the trend shows no sign of slowing down either. Our range of large format contemporary tiles is named the Tileworks collection and it is home to a wide selection of concrete, stone, and metal effect tiles in an abundance of neutral tones and finishes. It’s these natural hues and effects that make our Tileworks collection so versatile, along with their large format attributes helping to create seamless style, due to less frequent grout gaps. With so many options, we thought it would be helpful to showcase how this collection can be used throughout all the areas of the home.   Lounge With more and more of us opting for open plan living, lounges with tiles are becoming more popular, due to their functionality and sleek look. You might think that tiles feel cold underfoot but with underfloor heating and an array of textures and finishes available, you needn’t worry. You can also add warmth with soft furnishings and deep rich colours. Pictured below are Portland Stone floor tiles with Midnight Blue large format wall tiles, both from the Tileworks collection.   Hallway Tiles are a brilliant choice for hallway floors, their durability means they can cope with the footfall of everyday life whilst still looking stylish and beautiful. Opting for large format tiles means you can also seamlessly blend into rooms like the kitchen or lounge for an uninterrupted, modern finish. For hallways we love the terrazzo style of our Pietra Lombarda tiles, they are perfect for creating a serene yet functional space.   Kitchen and Utility Kitchens need to be practical spaces and so tiles are a natural choice for walls and floors. Not only are tiles easy to clean and maintain, but they can also help you to create a number of styles. Large-format tiles are great for achieving modern looks, especially when teamed with handle-less cabinetry and chrome fixtures and fittings. They are also great for adding character, take our Marble Carrara tiles, styled here with wood-effect floor tiles to create a scandi-style kitchen. There are plenty of options for utility rooms too, we love the simplicity of our Peggy Grigio tiles, teamed with simple white cabinets for a soft and fresh look.   Bathroom You can transform your bathroom into a calming oasis by choosing the right tiles and Large-format tiles are perfect for this. Opting for a larger sized tile will give you fewer grout gaps and help to create a continuous, smooth finish. To create a relaxing, spa-style bathroom try our Amelia tiles, their detailed veining creates an element of texture to help add depth and warmth to a space.   Outdoors The Tileworks range is so versatile, there are even tile options that can be installed outside. Our Kaamos tiles have an elegant and refined stone look with versatile and practical properties. Use Kaamos both inside and out, with both 10mm and 20mm options; it’s extremely hard wearing and can even be laid onto to sand, pebbles and directly onto grass. The full colour-bodied construction disguises any wear and tear that may occur on tiles used outside.   So, whichever room in your home you’re working on, there’s something in the Tileworks collection that’s perfect for your project.  Read more...
  3. 2LG Studio present their top interior trends for 2020

    2LG Studio present their top interior trends for 2020 Each year, Original Style works closely with leading designers and interior experts to apprehend what colours, styles and schemes will embrace the interior scene in the upcoming year. As one of the UK’s leading tile manufacturers and suppliers, staying ahead of the curve is imperative and we’re pleased to announce that this year we’ve teamed up with London-based interior design duo, 2LG Studio, to bring you THE top tile trend predictions for 2020…   New Heritage - a modern twist on an old classic   Think decorative details, fine craftsmanship and timeless colourways and you’ve begun to embody a New Heritage interior style. Through incorporating classic qualities of historical interior décor alongside modern influences, you can create a space that withstands the test of time whilst ensuring your home never goes out of style.   Tiles have been a staple within interiors for centuries and despite the evolution of various formats and finishes, it’s the traditional styles that turn heads time after time - from the quintessentially British Victorian Floor Tiles through to artisan glazed and decorative tiles such as Original Style’s Artworks and Winchester tile collections.   “What’s wonderful about the New Heritage trend is that you don’t have to have to a period property to embrace it! It’s all about capitalizing on momentous historic décor, such as from Victorian, Edwardian and Art Déco movements, and adapting and mixing these styles to suit your interior – think Victorian Floor Tiles in modern colourways and rich, deep glazed tiles in contemporary formations such as herringbone or stack bond. Take something old and add a modern twist – this is what New Heritage is all about.” – Jordan Cluroe & Russell Whitehead, 2LG Studio.     Iridescence – fresh, fun and vivifying For those who enjoy being more playful with their interiors, the cool pastel shades and radiant surfaces that comprise the iridescent trend will be alluring. Taking influence from the mesmerising Aurora Borealis, you can incorporate an iridescent scheme to create your very own light show. “Iridescent homeware has been creeping into the interiors scene of late and we predict this trend is only going to become bigger and bolder during 2020. It’s no secret that light, both natural and artificial, can make a huge difference to the look and feel of a home and through incorporating reflective surfaces and soft colourways you can help a space feel brighter and livelier.  “Embrace this look with varied intensities; be daring with the glossy glass iridescent brick tiles from Original Style’s Glassworks collection – we LOVE ‘Pink Frost’! – Or if you want to go a step further, the fish scale iridescent mosaic is a real show stopper. For a more subtle take, a square field tile with a lustre finish will also help you achieve a light bouncing, iridescent vibe. “With people becoming more daring with their interior style, we advise our clients to incorporate design that bring them happiness and if iridescence doesn’t do that, then we don’t know what will!” – Jordan Cluroe & Russell Whitehead, 2LG Studio.     Texture Play - creating atmosphere through surfaces Incorporating natural materials and bringing the outside in has been a popular movement within interiors for decades, but now – thanks to advancements in inkjet technology – this look can be achieved through tiles. Stone, wood, concrete and marble-effects are all available in porcelain tile for a result that’s not only realistic – honestly, they look and feel just like their original counterparts! – but also wonderfully practical. “When it comes to texture play, it’s all about mixing up surface finishes within a space. In modern interiors, simply looking good isn’t good enough – during 2020, we’re anticipating an emphasis on how design feels. This new look, full of contrasts, is based on texture pairing; rough with smooth and matt with gloss, in order to achieve an atmospheric look and sensory experience that draws the eye and encourages touch. “This look can be achieved through installing flooring with a matt finish, such as Original Style’s Victorian Floor Tiles or a stone-effect tile such as ‘Mediterraneo’, in addition to a wall tile with a glossy glaze. Alternatively, you can switch it up with a polished floor tile and a matt, textured wall tile such as ‘Fusuma’. It’s also important not to forget the accessories as this is another opportunity to add another texture dynamic such as with brushed metal taps and coarse fabrics” – Jordan Cluroe & Russell Whitehead, 2LG Studio.     So - there you have it, the top trend predictions for 2020! What we love about Jordan and Russell’s predictions is that they’re all completely different but equally beautiful in their own way. Research shows that people are becoming braver within their interiors and are searching for ways to inject more personality into their homes. These trends personify this movement as there’s an appeal for all characters whether classic, spirited or experimental. Which of these trends will you embrace in your home during 2020 Read more...
  4. Incorporating large format tiles into your home with our new Tileworks collection

    Incorporating large format tiles into your home with our new Tileworks collection Large format contemporary tiles are still a popular choice for homeowners and there’s no sign of the trend slowing down any time soon! So, to keep our collection of large format, contemporary tiles up to date, we’ve refreshed it to include some truly beautiful new options, from gorgeous golden wood effect tones, to bang-on-trend terrazzo styles, there’s plenty to be inspired by.   Deciding on a kitchen style can be stressful, not only are there decisions to be made on cabinetry, colour schemes and fixtures and fittings, but consideration also needs to be given to practicality. Tiles are a natural choice for any kitchen, whether it’s contemporary or classic in style. For kitchens, large-format tiles are arguably the best choice. Larger surface areas and fewer grout lines make for easier cleaning, meaning they’re hygienic whilst remaining chic and stylish.   Featured above are Nord Ris - a cement effect tile in cool, soft tones of grey - and Kaamos, an elegant and refined stone look. Both options are perfect for floors, team them with natural colours and textures like wood, marble and exposed brick for a cool and contemporary look that also has a warm and welcoming feel.   Beautiful Bathrooms Bathrooms also benefit from the properties of large-format tiles, especially in smaller areas where they can make a room look much bigger than it really is, helping to create a sense of scale that doesn't naturally exist. But more obviously, their grand scale can really make a bathroom look amazing!   For a totally on-trend spa-style bathroom take a look at Mediterraneo. It's extra-large format (900 x 900mm) and has a light yet bold texture with a rustic feel available in three gorgeous shades. Use on walls and floors for a seamless look. For a really opulent feel check out Bianco Oro, a marble effect tile with beautiful gold veining. This highly polished glazed porcelain tile is available in two large format sizes (900x900mm and 1200x600mm) and perfect for those looking to create a luxurious feel. We’ve teamed it with Boreal Natural, a wood effect tile with widely varying faces, to add warmth and depth. If neither of those tick your boxes, try the soft travertine effects of Mescla. It's neutral tones and subtle texture effects will work in many bathroom settings. There’s also St Martin with subtle veining and sophisticated grey shades to fashion a high-end smooth finish.   Stylish Spaces If you’re looking to update your hallway, it’s really worth considering tiles; you only need to search for hallway ideas on Pinterest to see why so many people are installing tiles into their hallways. Not only do they look fantastic but they are also ideal for enduring the heavy traffic of everyday life. Below we’ve styled our Pietra Lombarda terrazzo style tiles with minimalist furniture and accessories for a sleek yet Scandi vibe. These tiles work well in open plan living, with beautiful detailing that replicates the 'Ceppo de Gré' style of natural stone which features large flecks and rich detailing. Large format tiles are also ideal for utility rooms and can be used on walls and floors to create stylish yet practical spaces. Peggy Grigio featured below has a buffed concrete texture and works well when teamed with neutral tones.   Take a look at our entire Tileworks collection and if you’ve already got your eye on something, visit your nearest local retailer for samples and more information Read more...
  5. 5 Kitchen style ideas using tiles

    5 Kitchen style ideas using tiles The kitchen is the heart of the home and often a difficult project to design whilst prioritising practicality. A great deal of thought goes into the look and feel of cabinetry, lighting, paint colours, furniture, fixtures and fittings, but does as much consideration go into selecting tiles? Many homeowners opt for paint on the walls to avoid having to install tiles, but this can be a false economy. Both wall and floor tiles provide a clean and hygienic surface that won’t be damaged by cooking splashes or constant wiping and can really enhance the finished look of the space.   Natural and neutral It’s no surprise that many of us opt for natural and neutral colour schemes; they’re simply beautiful and add a cosy feeling, thanks to the warm undertones of browns, creams and taupes found in a natural colour palette. These shades reflect the warm rustic shades of the earth and can be enlivened with dark leafy greens or coppers and golds for a touch of glamour. If this is the style you’re looking to create, it’s worth considering wood-effect floor tiles. Natural wood flooring can be high maintenance and subject to damp, woodworm and the scratches and scuffs of everyday life.  With the developments in ink-jet tile printing, wood-effect floor tiles now look as good as the real thing; check out the full range here. For wall tiles, white brick tiles complement wooden worktops, cabinetry and rustic furnishings perfectly. For a really organic feel opt for natural stone. Here, we’ve teamed Natural Slate in Burnt Sienna with Levantine ivory wall tiles for the perfect country kitchen in soft neutral tones, for that blissful homely feeling.       Keep it simple with Field Tiles There’s a reason field tiles have remained a staple trend in tiling and interiors for decades. They are a classic choice and simple enough to work in harmony with so many kitchen styles, with the option of different colours, sizes and finishes. The field tile has a long history in interiors due to their functional yet decorative qualities. Whether your kitchen style is contemporary, modern or an eclectic mix of both, you can be sure that field tiles will in, some way or other, work easily into your scheme.  Just take a look at the beautiful settings below that showcase how a simple field tile can complete a space. Installing field tiles in a grid layout is one of the most popular tiling methods, but field tiles can also be brick bonded to add an extra element of interest.     Be bold with a statement floor Flooring is fundamentally a functional design aspect in a room. It can often be overlooked in the design process or thought that functional needs to be plain to be practical. Nowadays this is no longer the case, recent years have seen vast developments in ink-jet printing – meaning beautiful patterns can be printed onto practical porcelain tiles! There’s a whole host of options out there from bold patterns (check out the Odyssey collection) to all sorts of heavily detailed wood and stone-effect tiles. For an authentic look, its worth considering Victorian Floor Tiles. There’s a wealth of patterns, designs and colours to choose from, all with the advantage of longevity due to their hard-wearing nature.  This means Victorian Floor tiles are perfectly suited to kitchens that endure high traffic, spills and the daily tread of busy families!      Experiment with layouts If you’ve opted for simple cabinetry or a more contemporary style, but you’re still looking to add that pop of interest, why not try tiling in a herringbone layout? Any brick tile can be ‘herringboned’ but it works especially well with ‘kit-kat’ style brick tiles that are long and thin. This is also a great way to introduce colour into scheme whilst including some texture and interest.    Feature walls The kitchen is the perfect place for a feature wall, especially if you’re looking for a way to inject a bit of personality and style into a practical space. You don’t need to tile entire walls, just the areas prone to spills and splashes making splashbacks a great place to start! Just take a look at our Mosaics collection and explore all sorts of colours, textures, patterns and shapes that are perfect for transforming a space. Shown below are Fable and Medine Mosaics, both made up of beautiful intricate patterns in a multiway of colours or a soft muted grey. For an even bolder look, explore our Odyssey collection, home to a huge variety of patterned tiles in a range of sizes.  If you still can’t decide on kitchen tiles, find your nearest Original Style retailer. Visiting your local tile showroom will allow you to appreciate the look and feel of a wide range of tiles and get help and advice from the experts Read more...

What a dream!   To introduce the new arrivals, we’ve comprised the following list to showcase some of our firm favourites. So, go and grab a cuppa, sit back and prepare to be inspired. When it comes to tiles, recent trends suggest that size does in fact matter. Our new steel range is big, bold and beautiful and is an exciting introduction to the Tileworks metal effect range.  It’s large format measuring in at 1200 x 600mm, makes for a dramatic statement. Alongside its ethereal textures and rich colour variations comprising Concept, Black and the stunning Midnight Blue, Steel will add intense dimension to any space. These porcelain wall tiles recreate gorgeous colours and detail of worn and rusted metal, making them the perfect addition to industrial décor.   The large format theme is continued in the expanded stone effect collection with Nero Venato, a glamorous black marble-effect tile. With Black continuing to be a key theme in contemporary interior design, Nero Venato is most definitely a step in the right direction for those looking to make an impact through the embrace of dark and moody interiors. Whilst hitting one key trend, why not incorporate another? This tile is absolutely breath-taking when paired with a gorgeous pattern floor tile, as shown in the above image with our Grande Lewtrenchard Grey on Chalk from our Odyssey collection.   As the popularity of wood-effect tiles continues to rise, we’ve introduced another show stopper to our range. Lignum offers greater versatility with more colourways to choose from and its high-performance slip-resistant finish means it’s also suitable for outdoor use and wet room floors. If you’re looking to achieve a tranquil and natural atmosphere, wood-effect tiles are the way to go.   The texture of a tile has the ability to completely change the overall look and feel of a room, which is why we’re proud to offer a selection of our products in both matt and polished finishes. Amelia is now available in ‘White Polished’ as well as in a new size format, allowing greater versatility to this stunning tile. And, when accompanied by Toronto from the Tileworks concrete-effect range, (which has also received a luxurious polished porcelain finish!), the completed look offers textured detailing for a contemporary, timeless feel.   Talking of textures, Maison Blanc is another addition which shouldn’t be overlooked. The woven fabric effect exudes style and its soft blue and cream tones are simply divine – pastel perfection Read more...

Mix together all four colours, Blue, Pearl, White and Anthracite for a gorgeous feature wall or just use one shade alone, either way these tiles will add some luxury. These additions complement the existing Montblanc collection, try teaming together with one of the large format tiles. We love how all of the sizes and colours work together.   Wonderful Wood Effect We’ve also complemented our Wood-effect collections with Oakwood and Krea. Oakwood comes in four realistic wood toned shades, shown below is Oakwood Nut, a gorgeous neutral blend suitable for all living spaces. Krea comes in three shades and two versions, with one suitable for inside and outside use, as well as wet areas. We’ve used it in a bathroom setting below and love the earthy grey undertones, teamed with contemporary fittings and fixtures for a cool contrast.   Krea also looks great in other areas of the home and is ideal as a neutral base for floors in living areas.   Industrial Style In concrete-effect, there’s Pescara, a matt large format tile which is available in a smooth or textured finish. The great thing about this range is how the two finishes work together. Try brick bonding to add some interest or keep it contemporary with a stack bond style. For something with a little more atmosphere we’ve added Shadow, which comes in 4 shades of grey. Choose from a 600 x 300mm format or a 600 x 600mm, or use both!    There’s something about marble… To complement our ever popular marble-effect collection we’ve added a striking black colourway, Nero Marquina. It’s suitable for wet walls, which makes for a great splashback, use as a standalone piece or create a whole wall as below. Either way Nero Marquina will add a dose of drama Read more...
