Why should you choose large format tiles?

So first of all why would you choose large format tiles, over regular sized, traditional tiles? Well, there are a number of reasons, including:

  • Increasing the sense of space in a medium to large room- because there are less grout lines between tiles that take up more physical space, the pattern is not interrupted as frequently. And this helps to give the impression of even more space
  • Adding a stylish feature to your room- large format tiles are available in a range of geometric shapes like hexagons. And these can look incredibly stylish in any contemporary home

So, when should you choose large format tiles?

So in which situations would large format tiles be more suitable? Well, there are several, including:

  • Timber or stone effect floor tiles- if you want your kitchen or bathroom floor to look like hardwood, or natural stone, then your best choice is to actually use timber effect floor tiles or stone effect floor tiles. These large format tiles look exactly like the real thing, but also offer waterproof qualities, and are incredibly low maintenance. These also complement both contemporary and traditional design schemes.
  • Feature floor- most tiling features use wall tiles. But if you are wanting to creating a feature floor, there is no better way than by using large format tiles. This can be effective for shower spaces and hallways as well as kitchens and bathrooms.
