Cool ideas to freshen up walls and floors

Cool ideas with extra large wall tiles

Sometimes you're just in need of some tile inspiration with a fresh take. So what better way to revive tired walls and floors or dress up brand new spaces than with extra large wall tiles.

Why would you go extra large on the wall tiles? Well, our tiles are designed with rectified edges - that means the edges are straight so grout lines can go to a minimum 2mm - the result? A beautiful seamless effect across walls. We look at how to refresh and revitalise the walls in your home with both our porcelain and ceramic tiles!

Tiles to take your breath away

Every once in a while along comes a product that makes you say "wow". Super-size slab porcelains were originally limited to commercial projects, but these statement making extra large wall tiles have thankfully crossed over to our homes.

Beautiful, practical and striking in equal measure, they are at home in the bathroom, as a kitchen splashback, and we think they prove that tiles really can be artwork. Our Blue Mottle design is paired to stunning effect here with Platinum from the same Forge collection to create a fabulously refreshing backdrop and canvas. These are porcelains to stun.

Cool as Ice

If it's ice cool, extra white freshness you are seeking then who needs the ski slopes? Our Glacier Gloss tile collection has all the ice white twists and turns you could want.

The three designs - Twist, Wrap and Ripple have an ultra-white, super smooth surface that make for one cool, crisp design. The Gloss finish brings an added coolness and in stunning 1000 x 333m large formats they can create one wonderfully seamless feature wall.

Bathroom Bliss

Texture, or how an object feels is a really important aspect of interior design. Combining the rough with the smooth creates textural diversity. Generally, ultra-smooth and shiny surfaces are more light reflective indicating coolness and softer surfaces absorb more light to make us feel warmer and cosy.

Thanks to new technology, our Fleece extra large wall tiles in 1000 x 333mm are a dazzling white, so you've got the best of both worlds. A lovely soft touch texture with a gentler diffusion of light than a gloss finish, and ice white freshness.

They pair to perfection with our Bliss Beige floor tiles shown here for room with a fresh feel and a soft, natural edge.

We're loving Swirl

We love Swirl. These Stone effect tiles are a gorgeous white with the softest of greys swirling across the surface. The ceramic tiles for walls are in both a plain finish as shown on the back wall and there is a decor tile (RH wall) to complement. They are in a lovely large 1000 x 333mm format and co-ordinate with the Porcelains from the same collection for floors.

White In, White Out

These porcelain 1510 x 750mm Swoop White tiles make an incredible canvas to any space. And why stop at walls? We don't always think about running the same tile inside, outside and across walls but it is a superb way to create a striking and subtle canvas to ground floor rooms.

With bi-fold and sliding glass door systems allowing for unfettered access from home to garden, and low minimal thresholds allowing for truly fluid spaces, the same flooring is a vital component to seamlessly blur those boundaries.

This makes one cool, contemporary space!
