Patterned Tiles

Patterned Tiles

Patterned tiles are becoming a must have for nay home! with their rich colours and variation of design from image based to floral and tribal, patterned tiles are perfect no matter their setting!

Let us, let you in to the world of patterned tiles including the explanation of the variation of designs and formats and the options for their uses such as rooms and applications etc! 

Now we will be the first to say when it comes to choosing tiles for your home, one could say we are flooded with options. Every design, shape, size and colour you could think of is now available in a variety of materials. Some of the many popular tiles of this day and age such include wood effect, hexagon tiles etc et but in our opinion for those looking to replace a floor or wall covering the only option should be the use of Patterned tiles!

A brief history of patterned tiles takes you in to the world of the market streets of Morocco, where the use of patterned and encaustic effect tiles have always been the fashion statement for centuries! Unlike the processes once used to create a patterned tile which consisted of crushed concrete, stone, glass and marble our tiles tend to be made from ceramic and porcelain.

The reason for this, is so they do not wear and offer waterproof capabilities without all the maintenance of having a cement based tile and of course not forgetting the cost! the cost to produce, paint and ship 1m2 of authentic moroccan tiles exceeds £200 per m2 but with the use of ceramic or porcelain and HD printing our patterned tiles are available from as little as £29.99 per m2.

There are a lot of uses for Patterned tiles and as we progress and choose to make our homes a reflection of our personality and strive for uniqueness we have a collection of over 300 different patterned tiles All of which have been designed to suit different environments. The main purpose of choosing a patterned tile over the use of a more "standard tile" is their ability to become a focal point or statement within the home!

The other thing we find with the use of patterned tiles is being able to decorate around them, although some may shy away from the bolder designs or colours it is actually incredibly easy to decorate the surrounding interiors with these in place!

The choices for patterned hallway tiles is endless and below are just some of the different styles that are most popular within the bathroom.

Below are some of the varieties of designs that we offer within our collection.


Hexagon Patterned Tiles

This is our favourite and we think it should become yours! it combines the use of geometric shapes found in authentic regions where patterned tiles strive with the mix of abstract, bold and distinctive designs and colours! The combination of these two aesthetics will create an absolutely stunning finish, perfect for those looking to make a big first impression when guests and family enter their home.

Hexagon Patterned tiles work perfectly on both the walls and floors throughout the home! they are non-restrictive in their uses and are surprisingly easy to install!

Within the range of hexagon patterned tiles there are approximately 100 different designs, sizes and finishes to choose from. It is important to remember to ensure the patterned tile you choose works for the environment you wish to install them!

For example ensure that if it is being used as a floor tile and that floor is subject to water look for a matt or textured finish tile to prevent slips!

If they are being installed on the wall then check to make sure the wall can take the weight. A basic way of doing this it


Encaustic Effect Patterned Tiles

This is what we would describe as the classic choice for a patterned tile and a little confusing because a patterned tile and an encaustic effect tile are actually the same product, it is a change of name that has moved forward a bit thanks to the popularity of the tiles!

This is one of our favourites and we think one of these go-to tiles. Encaustic effect basically means the look and feel of genuine encaustic tiles coupled with the modern tile manufacturing techniques to perfectly replicate the aesthetics.

We have a large range of encaustic effect Patterned tiles that is non-exhaustive this includes the likes of monochrome designs, single coloured designs and mixed colour designs. Its important for us that our customers have a large option to choose from as we believe everyones taste is unique.

When opting to change the walls or floors with the use of patterned encaustic effect tiles. consider the size of the area, for wall installation opt for a smaller encaustic effect patterned tile such as 20cm - 30cm in size, for the floors go for a large format tile! they look incredible and the reduction in grout lines will really make the design and colours stand out!

We would advise measuring your space, choosing a few samples, measure the size of the tiles and pattern and then decide how it will fit in to your space.


Geometric Patterned Tiles

For those who really like to push the boat out and really create a focal point be it the walls or floors of your home then the use of our geometric patterned tiles may just be the perfect option for you!

Geometric designs give an urban and artistic interior finish to your home! It is the process of combining modern shapes with the use of repetitive designs with our break to raise a three dimensional abstract finish.

These work particularly well as a floor covering because the approach on the tile blows you to get a visual perspective of the design. The larger the space the better these work as a package. We particularly like the use of cube effect designs for floors.

Some of our customers who use these tiles also opt for an alternative design where they will have a central runner or a square of patterned tiles in the centre of the room and then surround them with a more neutral tile.
