Most people are now opting to tile their living spaces rather than choose other floor covering such as carpet, floating floors, vinyl or hardwood due to the fact that tiles are extremely hard wearing and tend to last longer than these other options. Over the past 10 years we have seen the average size of floor tiles get larger and larger with the most popular being large format tiles in a 600x600mm. There are a number of reasons for this trend:
To begin with, it has definitely become more fashionable to use larger tiles in living spaces, especially in new homes. With many people in Adelaide opting to build a new home rather than buy an existing dwelling, we have seen the layout of living spaces tend to be large, open plan that really requires a larger tile to match the scale of the room. Large tiles look & feel luxurious & expensive but actually tend to cost the same (or a lot of the time, even less) to purchase and lay than smaller tiles.
Large tiles mean less grout spacings! Grout joints are always the most difficult area of a tiled floor to keep clean so less grout joints means less cleaning. Which, I think we can all agree, is always a major plus! They are also great for any household with members who have asthma or allergies.
With these large format tiles being so very popular, it means that there is lots of stock in all different colours available at any good tile outlet. This means you can pretty much always find the exact tone or design that is going to work best in your home.
Large format tiles are the way to go when tiling your floors. There are not only extremely on trend & fashionable but are a practical choice & readily available for purchase.
