Marble Effect Tiles

In recent years, marble-effect floor tiles have grown in popularity, with many homeowners and business owners turning to marble-effect tiles to bring a sense of warmth to their properties. The natural veining that runs through our range of marble-effect floor tiles gives a fantastic individual character to each and every tile whilst also instilling a real sense of homeliness.

When paired with marble-effect wall tiles, your floor tiles really come to life, giving a genuinely grand feeling throughout your home. If you want to make your home feel warmer throughout the winter months, we would recommend going for one of the darker colours in our range. Thanks to their striking aesthetics, these tiles give a fantastic contrast to any white furnishings in your home.

Boasting all of the aesthetic qualities of real marble tiles, our range of marble-effect tiles is the perfect addition to any room and comes with a considerably smaller price tag than their genuine counterparts. Pairing stunning aesthetics with a robustness that is capable of withstanding the pressures of modern-day life, they really are a fantastic option for any home.

Victorian Tiles

Victorian tiles have long been a favourite among UK homeowners, with their versatility being one of the biggest attractions for many interior design experts. Seamlessly fitting into almost any existing bathroom, kitchen or living room interior, Victorian floor tiles add a real sense of character to any room.

Boasting a whole host of fantastic patterns and colours, these tiles can lift the mood of any room you choose to install them within, and it’s for this reason they become extremely popular in the lead-up to the winter months. If you’re looking to warm up a room for the colder months, we would recommend going for a colourful patterned tile from our Victorian wall tile range to complement the rest of your décor.

With distinctive features in abundance, a striking aesthetic can easily be achieved in your home with just a small section of any room dedicated to Victorian tiles. It’s also worth noting that this particular type of tile can be used as a kitchen splashback, which is especially effective when used in kitchens lacking in colour and character.

Wood Effect Tiles

Whilst it’s fair to say that wood effect tiles may not be at the top of everyone’s winter tile trends list, you might be surprised at how capable they are of naturally adding a sense of warmth to your home.

To make the most of wood effect floor tiles in your home, we would recommend combining different shades to create a rustic-chic look in your property. This look can really make a house feel like a home. Whilst this may sound difficult to do, it really isn’t, and our team are always ready to help you if you’re struggling to achieve your desired look.

Pairing both wood effect wall tiles with their floor counterpart can create a seamless modern look through your home, so we’d strongly suggest considering these tiles for your next renovation project.

Underfloor Heating

We cannot recommend underfloor heating enough for any homeowner considering making a switch to a tiled floor. There are a whole host of advantages of underfloor heating, for example:

  • Efficient Home Heating: Underfloor heating provides an even and consistent warmth in each room of your home. Unlike traditional radiators, this system ensures a comfortable ambient temperature from floor to roof.
  • Potential Energy Savings: Underfloor heating systems are energy-efficient, consuming less energy than traditional boilers and radiators. The floor retains the heat notably better, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower energy bills.
  • Space Conservation: With an underfloor heating system, you eliminate bulky radiators taking up valuable space in your rooms. The system is hidden under your floor, contributing to a clutter-free and minimalist aesthetic.
  • Low Maintenance: Underfloor heating systems, whether electric or water-based, require minimal maintenance due to their high reliability.
  • Increased Hygiene: By keeping the floors warm, underfloor heating can prevent dampness at ground level, which creates an inhospitable environment for dust mites and other bugs to breed.

If you’re considering this as an option, we have to recommend our incredible partner, Novus Underfloor Heating. We’re thrilled to work with this company to deliver high-quality products that provide all the benefits listed above. Their systems offer lower water temperatures and reduce energy costs, as well as radiate silent, uniform heat – the perfect solution for curing the winter blues!
