What are the different trends for stone effect tiling?
There are a number of different trends when it comes to stone effect tiling. These include:
- Continuous tiling- using stone effect tiles with only a very fine grout line gives the impression of one long continuous, uninterrupted surface. And for walls, especially in the bathroom, this can be incredibly visually effective. Many homeowners opt for a marble effect tile, but this can be just as effective in limestone or slate effect too.
- Shaped tiling- on the other hand, using smaller stone effect tiles in unusual geometric shapes can create a unique effect that really grabs attention. this is more effective for contemporary properties, and can be perfect for hallway floor or wall tiling, or kitchens and bathrooms.
- Textured tiling- another popular trend involves using stone effect tiles that have a natural texture. This makes the tiles more three dimensional and creates visual interest in any space.
