How to tile walls and floors

Shades of grey

Grey isn’t going anywhere. It’s one of the most versatile shades out there and will work in both contemporary and traditional settings. Grey tiles come in all textures and finishes —from natural stone to metro tiles—so you can create a look that’s right for your home. Team grey with black or white for a classic look, or double your trend count by combining with splashes of mustard, orange or turquoise.

Large-format style

For a really sleek, luxurious look, large-format tiles are the perfect choice. They are normally bigger than 30cm by 60cm, meaning there’s the added bonus of fewer tiles to lay and less grouting to be done. They give a boutique-hotel look when used on both walls and floors. They’re a dream to clean, which means they’re as practical as they are good looking.

Wood-effect designs

Do you love the look of solid wood but worry it isn’t practical in a kitchen or bathroom? Wood-effect tiles are a great solution. Use them on floors or feature walls to create a style statement that looks stunning when combined with natural stone. And unlike real wood, there’s no need to worry about tiles warping every time they get wet, so they’re practical, too.c

Marble effect tiles

Our ceramic marble effect tiles are a great alternative to natural stone tiles if you’d like the style without the price tag. Advanced inkjet technology replicates natural stone, giving you an authentic look and feel. You can use these on both walls and floors for an indulgent look, accessorising with sleek door handles and taps to continue the boutique feel around the room.

Metro style

Metro style tiles have bevelled edges and a raised centre, giving a textured rather than a flat finish. The brick-shaped tiles work perfectly in kitchens and bathrooms. Choose a high-gloss finish or bold colour, like red, for a really on-trend look.


Mosaics are making a real comeback. The latest mosaics incorporate more than one colour, rather than just different shades of the same colour, and combine different materials such as stone, glass, metal and even mother of pearl. Keep the rest of your palette neutral and then pick out the key mosaic colours elsewhere in the room. Perfect for a splashback, feature wall or delicate border.
