Large-format tiles are the up-and-coming trend these days. Large-format traditionally has been defined as 12”x12”, but now larger and larger sizes are hitting the market, like 12"x24", 24"x24", 8"x48", 24"x48", all the way up to 5' by 10' porcelain slabs. They offer sleek lines and minimal grout, plus go well with design styles from contemporary to traditional. These stone, porcelain, ceramic and glass large tiles lend themselves to creating spaces that are open, inviting, and flowing!
Reasons to choose Large Format Tile
- Luxury appeal – Long rooms and hallways have always been a sign of wealth and luxury, this is still true today. Without compromising on a room’s design, if you would like to really lengthen a room, then capitalizing on rectangular shaped large format tile flooring can accomplish that.
- Easier to maintain – Compared to smaller flooring tile, with myriads of grout lines to clean, large format tiles are so much easier to clean and maintain because of very few joints and grout lines. This actually saves time and money. And, the tile looks better longer.
- Large Format Tiles mounted on walls – You may have noticed ceramic tiles or marble mounted on walls before? This is a popular trend with hotels, resorts and corporate offices; however, most people don’t realize that large format tile flooring can be effectively mounted on walls too. If you can imagine opening up a space, and lengthening a room utilizing large format tile flooring, then imagine the ability to opening up and lengthen your building’s wall space as well!
- So many choices - Options range from stone and porcelain to glass and ceramic wall tile in a wide range of sizes that open the door to countless design options.
