Tile Trend: Large Format Tiles


Remember last month when we went to visit our Italian supplier Imola Ceramica? Well here’s the stand we brought back with us (no, not in hand luggage!). This huge tile is 2.6×1.2metres in size but just 6mm thick to ease the moving & laying of them (although not to fear, they’re just as strong as your average thickness tile). 

Recently we have seen interior design trends move towards large format tiles as they’re ideal for creating an unfussy, contemporary look. 
Materials such as natural stone and concrete remain popular thanks to the ‘architectural’ look that can be seen in shows like Grand Designs, and large format tiles are the perfect solution for replicating those looks. The bigger the tile, the fewer the grout lines allowing for a clean and seamless aesthetic.

SiriPro Tutorial

Italian Siri Cutters

We’ve recently added some new cutters to our collection, the SiriPro & SiriSmart. The Siri professionals paid a visit to our Sheffield & Doncaster branches to show our staff and traders just how good they are, and we were not disappointed – just take a look at some of the cuts achieved below!


We have some amazing trade deals on both the SiriPro & the SiriSmart so be sure to enquire at your local YTC.

Who knew plain white tiles could look so high fashion?


If there was a tile equivalent of the little black dress – it would have to be the little white square. And like a good LBD, the white square is incredibly versatile. Whether it’s in a boutique hotel bathroom or simply the downstairs cloakroom, this tile can wow. Pair it with a black hexagon (see above) or a Victorian-esque tiled floor, the possibilities are truly endless. 

The chic bathrooms pictured above have been tiled in our 150x150mm White Gloss – a bargain at just £6.60m2. For that price, why not give your bathroom or kitchen a new lease of life?
