01 May The Dramatic Effect of Oversized Tiles
Large format tiles are currently one of the biggest trends in bathroom design. It is hard to find a downside to oversized tiles;
They are simple and refined, easy to maintain and provide clean and sophisticated look.
Years ago 600X600mm tile format was considered big, but thanks to advanced possibilities in tile technology, today we have formats from 800x800mm to tile slabs as big as 3000mm x 1500mm. Expansion and development in the tile industry led to increased interest for oversized tiles on the market.
It is clear that this trend is not vanishing, in fact, tiles could only grow bigger.
Elegance and versatility in finishes show their contemporary and timeless character.
Without the doubt, large format tiles are the bathroom and kitchen choice of the future and will mark present times.

Regardless of the design and color, large format tiles make a dramatic difference in space. They bring grandiose impression in large bathroom areas, while creating the illusion of space in small ones.
Because of fewer breaks along the surface and less grout lines, they diminish visual clutter, providing a smooth and elegant flow. It is easier to work out a balanced and symmetrical composition in space when using large tiles.
