At home with stone
Want some inspo around our stone-look tile range? The Cosy Country Cottage is a masterclass in realising earth-inspired, relaxed luxury. To emulate real stone, variation is vital, and two of our premium stone-look ranges, Aquitaine Grigio and Reverso, will help you get this genuine ununiformed finish.
The Aquitaine range is made to mirror the organic charm of travertine or limestone, minus the maintenance. Made in Italy, these glazed porcelain tiles bring an impressive luxe feel without plucking more from your pockets. Introducing the Reverso range of Italian glazed porcelain tiles will give your space the natural splendour of vein cut travertine. The bonus? There’s no need to seal them, and they can take all the wear and tear of family life, from barbecues to impromptu ball games.
Coveting a cottage-style bathroom? Your best bet is to tie traditional elements in with the creature comforts of modern-day living. Use a travertine-look stone on the floor laid in a French pattern to create visual interest. Not only is it pretty, but it’s also a premium quality surface that’s both low-maintenance and lovely.
Speccing Reverso White tiles for your bathroom floors let you lean into the natural veining found in real stone. An irregular lay pattern imitates the variability of stone to build a natural focus in your room.
Running stone-look tiles from inside to outside continues the organic tone and complements any exterior architectural elements.
To echo the lush natural feeling of your landscaping, our Aquitaine Grigio tiles work a treat. Lay them in a French pattern to solidify your holistic design. And don’t forget – they’re non-slip and there’s no need to stain or seal to protect them from the elements. The perfect exterior surface solution – beautiful and functional.
Mix it up
Combining textures is a great design tool, especially when you’re using a natural palette. Tiling to half height in the bathroom with a tiled trim will help break up other textures like wood on walls for a finish that harmonises all elements.
To vary your finishes, try putting the Matt White tile with the Reverso White. The simple white tiles will create a subtle background for your stone-look floor to shine.
Remember this general rule – when working with a natural aesthetic, white surfaces put other textures in the spotlight.
Fancy some exotic luxury at home? The La Riviera range brings a texture reminiscent of handcrafted Moroccan tiles without the large spend. These square tiles can transform your bathroom vanity spaces into inspirational backdrops. Get the look of gloss wall tiles with the added plus of durability and consistency.
