Forget wall-to-wall carpet and plain painted walls, if you’re looking to add some real character to the living room, then tiles are the perfect solution. Perhaps more traditionally associated with kitchens and bathrooms in the UK, tiles are becoming an increasingly popular choice for both walls and floors of other rooms in the home.
Harder wearing than their real wood and carpet counterparts, porcelain and ceramic tiles don’t scratch and mark, won’t fade or discolour over time, and are easy to clean and maintain. This makes them an ideal choice for families, heavy traffic areas in the home, pet owners and anyone looking for a low-maintenance flooring alternative.
Aside from ticking all the boxes when it comes to practicality, tiles also offer endless options for getting creative. If you’re looking to make a statement then the hearth of a fireplace is an ideal place to start. Our beautiful Mindanao Antracita split face design porcelain wall tile would be perfect for the hearth of a fireplace and our Flintstone Dino range of tiles would add plenty of rustic charm to a living area and is an ideal way to incorporate the latest trend of bringing the outdoors inside.
If you’re looking to make more of a statement then the hearth is also the perfect place to showcase some beautiful print and patchwork tiles. We love the intricate details of the Espania range, while the cool Scandinavian vibe of these StoneWorx Mosaico Gris tiles will add plenty of Nordic charm.
Living room floors are also an ideal place to make a statement with some stylish tiles. Carrara design marble-effect tiles are such a popular option these days and are increasingly popular on living rooms floors. They provide a complete feel of luxury and you would surely be the envy of all your friends!
When it comes to living room flooring, we also can’t get enough of the growing trend for wood-effect tiles. Aside from their desirable prices and practicality, digitally printed wood effect porcelain and ceramic tiles also offer endless choice when it comes to style and design. From warm and rustic to classic and rich, cool urban chic to a laidback beach house feel – there’s a style to suit all tastes.
