With the dark nights and cold mornings officially setting in, we thought that now would be the perfect time to bring you some of the very best winter trends from the tiling world. From tiles that are ideal for giving your home a genuine boost of life right through to underfloor heating technology, there are a whole host of trends that you simply must know about!
We will take a closer look at some of the hottest tile trends currently sweeping through the sector, whilst also giving you some insight into how to warm your home or business up this winter.
Marble Effect Tiles
In recent year’s marble effect floor tiles have grown in popularity, with many home 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, our black marble effect wall tiles give a fantastic contract to any white furnishings in your home.
Boasting all of the aesthetic qualities of real marble tiles, our range of marble effect tiles are the perfect addition to any room – and come 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, marble effect tiles really are a fantastic option for any home.

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, Victorian floor tiles can lift the mood of any room you choose to install them within and it is for this reason that they become extremely popular in the lead up to the winter months. If you are 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 being dedicated to Victorian tiles. It’s also worth noting that this particular type of tile can be used as a kitchen splashback – this is especially effective when used in kitchens that are 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 of wood effect tiles 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! Simply just speak with one of our friendly advisors either in person or via phone or email, and we would be more than happy to give you the very best advice.
Pairing both wood effect wall tiles with their floor counterpart can create a seamless modern look through your home, so we would strongly suggest considering wood effect tiles for your next renovation project.

We cannot recommend underfloor heating enough for any homeowner who already has tiles installed in their home, or any who are considering making a switch to a tiled floor.
