Unique Shapes

Mosaic tiles are an especially favourable option for those who prefer to include more unique shapes and styles in their bathroom.

Classic penny-rounds, paddle shapes, mini hexagons, diamonds and more, you are sure to find a stylish shape that will help you create the ultimate feature element in your next bathroom design project.

Timber Tiles

Timber has traditionally been a material that is avoided in the bathroom as the increased levels of moisture and humidity can potentially lead to warping, discolouration and damage of the material. Porcelain tile manufacturers have created a wonderful alternative solution that allows for the timeless character and elegance of natural timber to be used in the bathroom in the form of a tile. Porcelain tiles that perfectly replicate the tonal variations and textures of a natural timber product can be used as a luxurious feature element in your new bathroom design, creating a wonderfully earthy touch in the space. These tiles can be used in both classically styled and more modern interior design schemes while also providing the perfect complement to other trending colours and finishes such as warm white tones, earthy marbles and rustic concrete.
