  1. Marble-effect tiles for bathrooms and kitchens

    Marble-effect tiles for bathrooms and kitchens We’ve added three new marble-effect collections to our Tileworks range. Each of these new additions has been carefully selected to reflect the most recent trends in interior design, offering three different marble styles.   Marmi Nero This large-format marble-effect tile has a honed finish, meaning it offers a realistic stone finish and authentic marble feel. 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. This marble-effect tile has a luxurious feel and looks beautiful teamed with gold fixtures and fittings, sleek cabinets and contemporary, neutral colours.   Choose from three formats in two finishes; a gentle honed option with a realistic stone look and feel, a polished finish, or a honed hexagon mosaic.   Statuarietto Featuring a heavier marbling with more background detail, Statuarietto marble-effect tiles have a classic feel. These marble-effect tiles offer striking detail for a bold look. Use alone for a simple yet stunning look or team with coordinating hexagon tiles for a contemporary space.  Also available in three formats in two finishes; a gentle honed option with a realistic stone look and feel, a polished finish, or a honed hexagon mosaic.   If you’re looking to incorporate marble-effect tiles into your kitchen or bathroom one of these collections may tick all your boxes. If you’re still not sure, head to your nearest local retailer to order samples and see how they look and feel in your chosen space. Tiles can completely change the style of a room and look different throughout the day. Creating your own moodboard and experimenting with colours, textures and layouts is a great way to help bring your ideas to life.

  2. NEW! Matchstick Mosaics

    NEW! Matchstick Mosaics Matchstick mosaics are having a real moment. Their small, geometric format provides a simple and modern feel. With the rise of this popular tile format, we’re delighted to announce the launch of our two exciting colour options.   Ice White Clean and crisp. If you’re looking to incorporate a white tile with a little more character then these mosaics are a great option. They come on a sheet, so they can be used on walls in a horizontal or vertical format. The bright white tones of Ice White contrast beautifully with a darker, grey grout. For something more subtle opt for a white or lighter coloured grout.     Forest Green Deep and atmospheric. Green is always a popular choice in interiors. Our Forest Green has deep blue undertones that add depth and dimension. Pictured here in a vertical layout, these tiles will easily enhance any kitchen or bathroom space. We love the look of these tiles across an entire wall but they look equally striking used in small splashbacks behind hobs and sinks. For samples and quotations, please contact your local Original Style Tile Showroom or retailer Read more...

  4. Interior Trends 2021: Sanctuary

    Interior Trends 2021: Sanctuary Over the past year, the need for creating calm and serene spaces within the home has become even more paramount. Confined to the walls that surround us, escapism and relaxation are what homeowners are seeking to achieve when updating an interior décor scheme – and we couldn’t be more on board with this design and lifestyle trend.   Our Sanctuary trend looks at ways to bring tranquility into the home to establish distinct areas for us to unwind in and harmonise our emotional well-being. When it comes to colourways, it’s all about the soft pinks and warm beige's to really embrace a calming and classic neutral palette. Textures also play a key part when it comes to designing a sanctuary. Tactile surfaces, either smooth and glossy or structured and matt, will help create a cosy, spa-like feel and tiles are the perfect material for incorporating either of these textures. For a matt wall covering, our Trellis collection in our Living range is the perfect tile for encapsulating this trend. Featured below is Trellis Lace which has been teamed with warm brown tones and gold accents – a design that exudes tranquility and style. If you're looking to incorporate more dusky pink tones and bolder prints, our Odyssey Taupe tiles in our Leigh pattern will provide a cosy, feminine feel whilst maintaining a matt finish. If you love luxury and want to take this look a step further, look to incorporate some more reflective finishes for an added touch of opulence. Our White Pearl Hexagon mosaics or large-format Bianco Oro marble-effect tiles are the epitome of luxe décor; their reflective and polished surfaces bounce light around a room for a bright and welcoming atmosphere. To complete the look, incorporating a number of other natural materials is a must. From wooden accessories, indoor plants or even some dried pampas grass will encourage that feeling of serenity and bring all design aspects together.

  5. Original Style's Interior Trends for 2021

    Original Style's Interior Trends for 2021 As we look forward to 2021, it’s important to consider the impact that 2020 has had on our lives and the influence upon our homes. For many of us, our priorities and lifestyles have altered dramatically and it was inevitable that such a sudden transformation of circumstances would completely change how we look at and use the spaces within our properties.   Each year, Original Style forecasts interior trends for the upcoming year working with industry and in-house experts to determine what styles, designs and colourways are likely to be popular so we can look at our tile ranges and help customers choose products to best achieve each of the predicted looks. This year is a little different. As a result of changing behaviours and everyday life, we considered it necessary to look at evolved lifestyle trends, to further understand the new priorities within the home, so we could inspire the embrace of the new normal and help customers adapt spaces to better suit their interior needs. Working alongside our in-house design experts, Jane Addis and Becca Keenan, we’ve determined three key home lifestyle trends that research suggests will be of most interest to homeowners over the coming year. So, without further ado, let’s talk trends!     Sanctuary Sanctuary is all about creating a calm, safe and tranquil space within the home to de-stress and escape from the worries and angst that life can bring. “With the global pandemic having an impact on our mental health, it’s vital that we create an isolated space, within our home, which brings serenity and allows us to take some time out to focus on our emotional wellbeing. Our environments have the ability to affect the way we think so this trend is about creating spaces that instill peace. Think soothing, neutral colourways and nature-inspired materials” – Jane Addis, New Products and Design Manager at Original Style “Textures also play a key part in this trend. Tactile surfaces with either smooth and glossy or structured and matt finishes will help create a cosy, spa-like feel within a scheme. You also want to look at adding a touch of opulence for a slight luxurious vibe, so reflective materials such as our White Pearl Hexagon mosaics and large-format Bianco Oro marble-effect tiles are perfect for achieving this” – Becca Keenan, New Products Designer at Original Style   Staycation Due to restricted travel overseas, 2020 has been the year of the staycation and this trend is all about helping you bring relaxing, holiday vibes into your interior décor.   “The best way to embrace this trend is to think of your favourite holiday locations or coastal inspired retreats and look at the colours, textures and materials that embody these destinations and bring them into your home. Beaches and coastal locations epitomise vacations so a great way of embracing the staycation trend is to look at bringing a range of different blues into the home that personify the natural hues of the sea and sky. Team with fresh whites and subtle greys to create a seamless coastal colour palette” – Jane Addis, New Products and Design Manager at Original Style “In addition to colour, we’d suggest exploring shimmery and glossy materials to create bright, reflective spaces that bounce light around the room. Our Pearl Scale mosaics feature iridescent qualities that not only provide a light-inducing surface but also mimic sea life inspired curves for the ultimate coastal-inspired space. Pair with soft woods and wicker textures to bring the look together” – Becca Keenan, New Products Designer at Original Style   Home Hub With many of us now working from home, the creation of remote office spaces has become a necessity and has completely changed how we use our homes on a day to day basis. “The Home Hub trend looks at working spaces and advocates décor solutions that motivates, inspires and brings a sense of calm – enabling us to work comfortably whilst creating a distinct space that’s separate to other areas of the home. Think urban jungle, bringing the outside in and cool and contemporary tiles with an industrial edge to create a working environment that has harmony and balance” - Jane Addis, New Products and Design Manager at Original Style “When it comes to colourways, Home Hub is all about earthy tones. Incorporate various hues of greens and browns together with a range of surface textures and house plants to bring the look to life. “Our Living Eden tile range complements this trend beautifully. Featuring lush and leafy designs printed on a large-format matt base, these tiles encompass the natural, contemporary vibe of Home Hub and are perfect for embracing this trend” - Becca Keenan, New Products Designer at Original Style.

  6. Pretty Pastel Interiors

    Pretty Pastel Interiors Pastel tones like frosted blues, minty greens and dusty pinks are all brilliant for adding a sense of calm and simplicity to a space. But sometimes it can be tricky to know where to start when integrating pastels into a scheme, so here are a few ideas, tips and tricks to help get you started.   Glass Tiles Tiles are a brilliant way to add colour and depth to a space and we have many pastel options, starting with our Glassworks collection. Try creating a splashback behind a kitchen or bathroom sink using pastel glass tiles to add a pop of colour. Not only are glass tiles beautiful, they’re also practical and durable making them a great choice:   Glossy Glazed Tiles Glazed wall tiles have been used in interiors for decades and now come in hundreds of shapes, sizes and colours. For pastel tones, our Winchester collection is the perfect choice. Our Winchester collection features a range of beautiful hand-crafted tiles that are manufactured at our production site in Exeter, Devon. Many of the tiles within this collection showcase pastel colourways and thanks to their soft, sumptuous glazes, colour tones are enhanced to showcase a deep and luxurious finish. Choose from soft mints, sages, blues, pinks and yellows, all in a variety of formats and mouldings.   Mosaics Many spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms have seen a rise in pastel palettes and they’re most certainly here to stay. Mosaics are great for those looking to add a touch of pastel into a scheme, they look beautiful teamed with large format neutral tiles on walls and floors. Here’s a few ideas:   Floors Opting for a pastel floor can really help to lift a space as well as adding interest and style. Our Mezzo collection teams pastel tones with contemporary greys, the perfect option for an understated pastel look. If you really want to embrace a pastel scheme, take a look at our new Victorian Floor Tile colours, Carnation Pink, Spring Green and Hawthorn Yellow. These new pastel colourways open up a whole new world of design opportunities, they can be teamed with existing colours to create patterns that are as subtle or as bold as you like.   Patterned tiles Patterned tiles have been around in interiors for decades and recent years have seen them make a comeback stronger than ever!

  7. 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...

There’s a whole host of beautiful new materials, sizes and finishes suitable for both walls and floors, so let’s get started.   Iridescent finishes New additions Pearl Scale and Aqua Scale welcome radiance, mimicking the popular scallop shell shape, these mosaics bring a contemporary flair to a bathroom setting and, with their iridescent finish there’s a spectrum of colours to be admired.   Marble Accents There’s no denying the popularity of marble and marble-effect tiles, they’ve been around in interiors for years and the trend is stronger than ever before. That’s why we’ve extended the Torcello range to include a brick bond and a square format. These can be used alone for a whitewashed wall of marble, or team them with some large format stone effect tiles from the Tileworks collection for a modern scheme.   Make it metallic For a statement wall with the wow factor, we’ve added Leaf Grey & Silver and Leaf Beige Mix – two mosaics in gorgeous metallic finishes in a beautiful and unique leaf shape.   Detail Therapy Patterned tiles have been big in interiors for the last few years and there’s certainly no decline in the trend.

Made up of colourful, delicate repeat patterns on individual tiles measuring 73x73mm, this patterned mosaic has a larger format than most, giving it a unique look Read more...
  9. Our top ideas for using metallic tiles

    Our top ideas for using metallic tiles If you’re looking to add some drama and warmth to your space, here are a few ways to incorporate metallic tiles into your home.   Unique Splashbacks There’s no denying that Copper has been the material of the moment in interiors as it looks great in a huge variety of settings. Brass and chrome are also still hugely popular but it is copper hues that are making the biggest impact in kitchen designs. If you’re looking a touch of copper, we recommend opting for a splashback using our Copper Leaf tile from the Glassworks collection.   Full glamour For those who want to really embrace the metallic trend look no further than a full wall of metallic effect tiles for a real wow factor. Metallic Steel (made from Porcelain) from the Tileworks collection is perfect for this and is and is suitable for wet walls making it ideal for bathrooms. We have plenty of metallic mosaics on offer from copper linear style to hexagons, browse the collection here. For those looking for maximum impact try Fusion Micro as pictured below.   Detail therapy If you’re on the other end of the spectrum and love the metallic trend but you’re not sure how to incorporate it into your interior, try experimenting with some accessories before taking the plunge. Adding a few accent pieces is also a great way to change a kitchen or bathroom, try adding a panel of metallic mosaics to liven up your space and add a little bit of interest.   Mixing Materials This is another popular trend that when done correctly looks striking, take a look at these Platinum half tiles teamed with a marble work top and teal green paint, a winning combination! Experimenting with textures and materials is a great way to create a unique style in your home.   Keep it classic There are many interior design styles that lend themselves to the current trend of metallic, such as Art Deco. Art Deco tiles tend to feature accents in gold and silver, as these hues are reminiscent of the opulence of the era. Stylised Art Deco tiles in trademark geometric shapes could be a great way of introducing gold and silver if you don’t want to cover large areas. Try incorporating decorative Art Deco border tiles with metallic flashes for an easy to live with look that is sure to impress Read more...
