If you are considering a home renovation project and are on the lookout for some of the hottest trends currently available on the market today, then you are in the right place! It’s no secret that large format tiles have been one of the most stable interior design trends in recent years, thanks to their many fantastic qualities.
In this guide, we will take a look at some of the reasons why large format tiles are so popular, the benefits they can bring to your home, some of the types of tiles on offer in this range and how they can be installed into your home.
Why Are Large Format Tiles So Popular?
In recent years, large format tiles’ popularity has boomed, but why is this? A significant amount of buzz around large format tiles has been created thanks to many homeowners looking for a clean and contemporary living space. Large format tiles offer homeowners a unique option for their home, as they are capable of giving any room a genuinely grand feel.
Benefits of Large Format Tiles
Their aesthetic appeal is another huge draw, with all large format tiles boasting stunning design. It’s also worth noting that large format tiles are extremely versatile and can be used on both walls and floors, which allows you to create a seamless finish from wall to floor, adding to the allure of your home.
Large format tiles work extremely well in both small and large spaces; as they are larger than the average tile less grout is required. This is a huge benefit for smaller rooms in your home, as it makes the room appear significantly larger than it actually is, especially if you use light coloured tiles. Large format tiles are also ideal in larger rooms in your home as they are capable of quickly filling a large space with elegant and stunning tiles.
Boasting fantastic durability, large format porcelain tiles are thinner than the vast majority of tiles currently available on the market but are renowned for their strength and toughness. Many homeowners actively seek out large format tiles as their thinness is ideal for underfloor heating, allowing heat to circulate freely.
The final and probably most important benefit large format tiles offer a homeowner is the fact they are far easier to maintain than an average tile. Thanks to less grout being required between the tiles, you’ll find that keeping on top of grout discolouration and deterioration takes significantly less time.
