We’re sure you’ll agree that the kitchen is the heart of the home. In addition to being necessary for the preparation of food, it is also increasingly becoming a social space: a place where family and friends gather to socialise, eat, drink and of course, cook.

Over the last year and a half, home improvements and renovations have become a massive consideration for a record number of people as tourism and much of the leisure sector has been intermittently off limits to most of us. As we have been forced to spend more time at home, it is only natural that we have started to pay more attention to the things that we dislike about our homes.
Here at Yorkshire Tile Company, we love to see all the fantastic ways in which our customers choose to use our products – whether that be for a kitchen floor and splashback refresh or a complete bathroom renovation. So, we were delighted to see how one of our customers, Roxanne (@ourgreyhaven), used our Terrazzo Albert Ivory, Mass Blanco and Stratford AG tiles to transform her bathroom into an Italian-inspired sanctuary.
Another year has come to an end which can mean only one thing, Pantone has finally announced what it thinks will be the colour to represent the year ahead! After such a tough year, we are delighted to see that Pantone has selected a bright and uplifting tone as its 2021 Colour of the Year - PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating.
This sunny, feel-good colour has been matched with the more grounding PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray to make for a contrasting palette to embody 2021’s upcoming trends. These two colours demonstrate perfectly how two strikingly different hues can come together to enhance one another and create a simultaneous feeling of solidity and optimism.
