One of the biggest trends this year is the beautiful raw texture of the concrete look tile. We’d like to draw your attention to an Italian product range that provides a unique pattern on every tile to be used both internal and externally. The beauty of this product is that the pattern is not repeated. The Downtown concrete series, is a full body porcelain tile collection manufactured with the latest Digital Ink-Jet Technology. The Downtown series is a non-porous tile and requires no sealing or maintenance. Exposed aggregates and a range of neutral tones replicate the look of concrete that has been walked on thousands of times.
Another beautiful concrete look series is Design Tile’s Varese Series which has the sheer elegance of that industrial appeal and yet the sophistication of polished concrete floor. The Varese Series is available in three fashionable colours which are Light, Medium & Dark; a feature tile named Fossil is also available to compliment the Dark colour. The versatility of this beautiful range is due to the variable sizing which makes it suitable for multi use applications. Sizes available are 200x200mm, 300x300mm, 300x600mm & 600x600mm
The benefits of tiles that look like concrete opposed to the real thing is that most tiles that look like concrete are glazed porcelain, and the great thing about a glazed porcelain tile is once laid there is no maintenance and no sealing (except for the general cleaning of course!)
The tile industry has caught onto the popularity of this natural look, it’s got the Italian, Spanish and Asian tile manufacturers in frenzy producing almost true to concrete look tiles. I have to say there sure is an abundance of beautiful tiles to replicate the concrete look!
