For years, the demand for tile was focused on smaller formats. Manufacturing processes meant larger tiles were cumbersome and difficult to work with. Thanks to advancements in ceramic tile technology, trends are shifting. Manufacturers are creating products that have doubled and tripled in size, resulting in architecture and design opportunities with limitless possibilities.
“The large format tile movement has taken off,” says Rocamador Rubio Gomez, director for Tile of Spain. “Artisans are replicating natural finishes such as concrete, marble and stone and creating masterpieces out of ceramic tile that are aesthetically appealing and functional.”
Below highlights a few leading trends for large format tile:
Outdoor Living Spaces
Gone are the days of maintaining wood decks and patios. Wide plank wood tile brings the warmth and style of genuine wood to your outdoor space without the upkeep.
Large concrete and stone look tiles are taking the place of stucco, wood, and glass exteriors. Ceramic tile offers durability, aesthetic quality, and easy maintenance.
Spa Inspired Bathrooms
Natural stone-look tiles have become a popular choice for bathrooms. The minimalist effect of large tiles creates a relaxed ambiance and spa-like atmosphere.
