What Type of Tile is right?

We all know that tiles are a key element in a most home makeover projects. Tiles can set the tone, colour and style of a room – and they give a polished, finished look if done right.

Unsurprisingly, choosing the right floor tiles and wall tiles takes lots of consideration. Picking the perfect tiles is not that easy! Tiling a room is a BIG commitment and you could be living with your tile choice for a long time. To assist you in your decision we run through some of the usual suspects…


Made from porcelain clay, it makes the tile a lot harder than any other ceramic tiles. Porcelain tiles can be either glazed or unglazed. It can be used in wet and dry areas of the house making it perfect for the bathroom.


Limestone is a carbonate sedimentary rock. Its components are widely used all across the building industry, but it offers a unique feel to any bathroom or kitchen.


Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallised carbonate minerals. It is most used as sculpture and building material and offers a sleek finish to any room.


Slate is homogeneous metamorphic rock, making it one of the strongest natural stones on the market. It is composed of clay or volcanic ash resulting in a striking feature.


Travertine is a terrestrial sedimentary rock, formed by the precipitation of carbonate minerals from solution in ground and surface waters. Travertine is one of several natural robust stones that are used for paving floors.


Granite is the oldest igneous rock in the world, the main component of the Earth’s crust and it is believed to have been formed 300 million years ago. Perfect for any bathroom.


Mosaics are usually a decorative design made of small pieces of stone or glass. Usually, they come premade on a supporting mesh that requires an experienced specialist to install it.


Glass was usually used for mosaics for many centuries. In recent years, glass tiles have become very popular in the bathroom owing to its translucent and suggestive qualities.



In short, there’s no right answer here, it’s all down to your personal preference. However, we offer some of our experienced suggestions to assist you in your thought process, because the colour of a room is an important factor!


  • All white tiles can look bright and light – great for making a small room look bigger.
  • Dark grey or black coloured tiles will add drama to your space, they hide the dirt but make a small room dark.
  • If the space you’re working with has a relaxed feel, then naturals are a safe bet.
  • Warmer tones, like terracotta, will give a Mediterranean look.
  • If you want to add glamour, then you need to pick a metallic tile.
  • Grey tiles make a great backdrop if you want to add contrast with pops of colour.
  • Generally, brighter colours will serve to open a space while richer colours will appear more dramatic.


What pattern SHOULD I CHOOSE?

If you’re feeling bold, you may look to a more funky or intricate pattern to your tiles. A complex pattern is perfect for adding character to a design feature such as a splashback or border, or for creating a designated ‘zone’ in an open space.

In addition, patterned tiles often create the biggest impact in isolated areas. If you want a more minimal look then a simple plain tile pattern is very effective, sometimes less is more.

We offer you a variant of patterns for your consideration:

If you want to be different and have a unique feel in your home, you should definitely go for hexagon tile style. This brings the wow factor to any room.




Herringbone has become more and more popular in London. It creates a sense of space in a small room, adding graceful movements and flow.




Brick bond style remains one of the most common tilling styles at the moment that dates back decades. Get a traditional feel to your bathroom with a clean finish.




This must be the most standard tiling pattern at the moment and agrees with any room. It’s no nonsense stack one tile above the other is as simple as it gets.




The modular look is a great way to add more interest in to your bathroom. This type of tiling pattern is usually found on the floor to a bathroom or kitchen.




Diagonal is similar to the straight pattern except the tiles are laid on a 45-degree angle, turning square tiles into diamonds. This style can be used with a border as a feature in a kitchen splash back.
