Rustic takes its inspiration from the countryside, with its warm, earthy tones, rural effects and riven textures providing a timeless feel for either the kitchen or bathroom.

New to this collection is Riven, a range of satin finish, stone effect wall tiles available in cool white or warm cream with complementary shimmering strips containing both gold and silver highlights.
Trends in texture are a key factor in current tile design and bring depth to a room. The new Textures collection provides an elegant selection of white tiles for the home. Whites are increasingly popular with the consumer and create a timeless stylish feel. They can be used either with an added texture or soft tonal effect with complementary borders and inserts. Henley satin and Holborn Gloss mosaics offer classic white tiles with a combination of reflective finishes which create a fresh, clean design interior suitable for both bathrooms and kitchen.
For a simple and elegant collection, Essentials provides a selection of wall tiles and colourful strips in a variety of textures from subtle lustre, matt and gloss finishes to textured whites, mosaic effects and classic marble, this range is a simple yet striking choice at a competitive price. Reflections brings something new to the classic flat white tile. Its bumpy surface subtly reflects the light creating depth, a simple yet classic choice. Vivaldi, however, offers a traditional range of light and dark wall tiles capturing the beauty of marble.
