What are structured tiles?
Structured tiles are tiles that have a strong surface texture, created from the raw material before firing. This gives the tiles a unique texture, with raised and sunken patches, and an undulating design. When used for wall tiling, this can be very visually effective in any home, traditional or contemporary. However, because of the uneven nature of the tile surface, it is not advisable to use these as floor tiles, as they would uncomfortable and potentially dangerous to walk on.
What are the advantages of structured tiles?
There are several advantages to using structured tiles in your home. These include:
- Creating a dramatic visual impact- structured tiles can have a dramatic visual impact on any space, large or small, contemporary or traditional. The textured nature of the tiles allows these to really stand out in any space, grabbing attention and creating an effective tiling feature. These can be combined effectively with smooth tiles in other areas of the room to create visual contrast too.
- Natural effect- if you are aiming to create a space that emphasizes nature, and uses natural colours and features, structured tiles can be a perfect. With the rough, uneven surface, these tiles can look exactly like rough brickwork, stone or timber, to create a natural result.
