Clever surface textures – cement look porcelain tiles

Clever surface textures with our Spanish floor tiles

There are some ground-breaking advances in tile technology. Increasingly large tile formats, the ability of porcelain to expertly imitate other materials and advances in tiles finishes to name a few. Porcelain is transforming how we might approach the design of spaces.

Porcelain as a material is hardwearing, scratch and stain resistant, can be used on walls and floors and with underfloor heating. In the right slip ratings it can be used outside too where it is fade and frost resistant.

Combine all that exceptional performance with those advances in surface texture and bigger formats, and this material is in a league of it's own. We explore how our concrete effect Spanish floor tiles are cleverly mimicking concrete with incredible precision.

Texture and finishes to tiles

When we choose tiles, colour is of course, a key priority. However, a tiles finish or texture can influence the overall feel we are seeking to create.

Our Spanish floor tiles feature some of the most innovative tile manufacturing processes on the market. This isn't just about format, this is about incredible precision. This is the ability to replicate real materials with ever greater detail so from marble to cements, stone to wood the contours, veins, knots and patterns are mimicked to the highest level.

Cement tile textures - introducing Beat

Cement has proven itself one of the leading design trends in recent years. It adds a certain industrial chic, an urban feel. It's the stuff of minimalist design. In it's rawest form it has a rough hewn texture full of beautiful imperfections. Replicating those tonal variations and non-uniform surface takes a certain technology that can expertly define the worn areas and timeless appeal of the real thing.

Beat's beauty is its imperfection. The surface of these tiles reflect the changes of shade, flaky patches, cracks and spattering of salts of the real thing.

Contour Finish

What's really clever is the Contour surface texture that picks out the ribbing and detail that is so characteristic of the pavement.

A contemporary colour palette

The colours in this collection are just as fabulous. With a strong contemporary feel they serve to create interiors with a cosy warm feel in beautiful Beige as well as a sultry backdrop in Anthracite. For a fresh take, opt for White or stay on trend with the ever in demand Grey. These colours are designed to work on their own or together.

Size and format

With 1000 x 1000mm and 1800 x 1000mm large formats, this is a collection to create amazing and ground-breaking spaces. The 900 x 900mm size is in both Contour finish and Antislip in 10mm thickness so can be used inside and outside.

The 600 x 600mm is in a lovely soft finish and a great size for those seeking a smaller format Spanish floor tiles. Add a stunning array of large format ceramic wall tiles that make bathroom design a cinch and we think all that makes this cement effect collection hard to beat.
