Benefits Of Marble Effect Tiles
There’s no doubting the sheer popularity of marble effect tiles within the interior design world, but you may be wondering just why they have gained such a great reputation in recent years. Here are just some of the many benefits that marble effect tiles come with:
Cheaper Alternative to Genuine Marble Tiles – Genuine marble tiles are truly a sight to behold, but there’s no denying they’re exceptionally expensive, especially if you are looking to cover a large surface with them. This is where marble effect tiles come into their own, as they boast the same aesthetics, with a much more affordable price tag. Many interior designers and homeowners are making the switch to marble effect tiles, thanks to their reasonable price point and ease of maintenance!
Easy to Maintain – When it comes to maintenance, you will struggle to find anything that is easier to maintain than marble effect tiles. Whilst it’s no secret that caring for genuine marble is pretty simple if you are in the market for a tiling solution that requires absolutely no maintenance at all, then marble effect is definitely for you. We like to use the expression that marble effect floor tiles offer a ‘lay it and leave it’ option, which is ideal for those who have exceptionally busy schedules.
Boast Stunning Aesthetics – There’s no denying the stunning aesthetics that genuine marble effect tiles bring to your home, but those same aesthetics can be found in marble effect tiles too.
Great For Floors and Walls – Marble effect tiles are ideal for both floors and walls thanks to their versatile properties. Marble effect floor tiles have robust properties and are perfectly suited to areas of high footfall within the home and even within businesses. If you are looking to create a seamless look throughout your home with tiles, then marble effect wall tiles paired with floor tiles can create a truly stunning and grand feel throughout your home.

What Are The Most Popular Styles Of Marble Effect Tiles On The Market?
Now that you understand some of the key benefits that marble effect tiles can bring to your home, you may be wondering what the most popular sizes and styles of this particular tile are.
When it comes to marble effect tiles, you’ll often find that many homeowners will install the large format version of them within their home. There are actually a number of reasons for this, with large format tiles themselves growing in popularity in recent years, thanks to their aesthetic qualities. Pairing up the undeniable style of a marble effect with the robust properties of large format tiles is truly a match made in heaven.
Large format tiles have soared in popularity thanks to their extra-large size, which inevitably means that fewer tiles are required to complete a truly stunning look within your home. Their size is a huge benefit for anyone who is in a rush to install their new interior style, as the installation time when working with large format floor tiles is cut down significantly.
Along with this, large format tiles are actually thinner and lighter than other conventional tiles, and despite this, they are actually more hard-wearing thanks to their porcelain properties. When purchasing large format wall tiles or floor tiles, you can rest assured they will stand the test of time, no matter where you place them within your home, indoor or outdoor.
