Wood Grain

Going back to nature, even if the actual tile is not made of wood, is one of the top tile trends at the moment. The tiles mimic the grain and texture of natural wood and make it very hard, from a distance, to tell the difference. The real difference is that unlike natural wood, these tiles do not suffer from damp in places where there is a lot of moisture.

Tiny little mosaic tiles look cute and gorgeous but there comes a time when only huge and over-sized will do. These large format tiles show beautiful clean lines and expand any space, thanks to less grouting. They make the smallest of rooms look instantly bigger.

We’d all like to feel like a Greek God, lazing in our bathrooms, lying back against the exquisite marbles surroundings. But marble is a fragile beast and out of most people’s price range. Step forward a suitable replacement, faux marble, tiles that look just as stunning and much more user-friendly.
