Large-format Tile

For a really sleek, luxurious look, large-format tiles are the perfect choice. Being a key new trend out of Europe, the larger tiles sizes are coveted largely because they provide an aesthetically pleasing, uncluttered look in both residential and commercial applications. Rooms are left with less grout lines, thus creating a more streamlined look. They are also perfectly suited to porcelain tiles in the replication of natural stone as seen above and below.

Wood-look design

If you are looking for sophisticated, durable and easy-to-maintain flooring, another trend from Europe – timber-look tiles – provides both the look and the functionality for homes and busy spaces.

Traditionally, timber has long been a coveted look for floors, but has the added worry of damage from pets, high heels and scratches from sharp objects, along with fading and water absorption. Not so with porcelain timber-look tiles. You can use them both indoors and outdoors, including wet areas such as bathrooms and around pools PLUS they are compatible with under-floor heating.

So practical yet so stylish – no wonder they are a trend in high demand in New Zealand right now.
