Large format tiles are elegant, classy, and timeless, and the versatility of these tiles has made it one of the most popular trends in 2017 for interior decoration. Aside from being less time-consuming to install, there are many other benefits to working with large tiles for your interior designs. Here are some of the biggest benefits of large format tiles that will convince you to hop on the bandwagon too.
What Are Large Format Tiles?
Large tiles are bigger in size than most conventional wall and floor tiles, which are 300 mm x 300 mm. By using large format tiles, sizes such as 24"x 24" and larger, your home or office will be instantly transformed into a spacious and stylish environment. Large tiles are emerging as one of the top contenders for bathrooms and kitchens, as they are contemporary and durable.
Benefits of Large Format Tiles
Easy to Maintain and Clean
Each large tile covers a bigger surface area, which means there will be less grout lines on the floor and walls. This leads to less time scrubbing the cracks when there are spills, as well as mould and mildew build up. Marvel Gems is a porcelain tile inspired by the beauty of Venetian Terrazzo—a large format tile perfect for refined commercial areas like shopping malls and hotel lobbies.
Elegant and Stylish
Large format tiles add elegance and flare to the home. Take for instance, Avenue, a collection that can transform any bedroom, living room, office waiting room, or hotel bathroom into a breathtaking and classy space.
Expand the Space
If you are decorating a room that is fairly small, large format tiles can provide the illusion of increased space. It can also brighten up the area due to fewer grout lines to distract the eyes. Additionally, since fewer tiles are needed, you will spend less time and effort on labour and tile cutting. If you’re looking to make your space look bigger, Bits & Pieces incorporates concrete-look tiles that provide a cool, rustic look.
Cover a Large Area
School floors, hallways, office bathrooms, and common areas are exceptionally large spaces to cover. For these areas, large format tiles are perfect. Styles like Sequence offer optimum coverage almost instantly, whereas smaller tiles take a long time to position and grout.
Large format tiles come in a variety of styles, patterns, and colours. The styles range from concrete for outdoor tiles, to marble, to high polish porcelain, to stone. Stone Blend Cementi is one style that incorporates the sophistication of marble, the cool tone of concrete, and the texture of polished porcelain. Since they can be used on basically any floor, you can achieve any style you want in any room with large format tiles.
