Natural stone and wood are extremely popular choices for floor and wall coverings in the home, but they can be costly to buy and maintain. Our range of natural tiles give you the look of realistic wood and natural looking stone, with none of the work or maintenance, and at a fraction of the price too!
Natural elements bring warmth and depth into your interior - each different type unique with its own characteristics. Our wood effect tiles have all the wood graining and textured surfaces that real wooden flooring has, and are available in a range of wood types and finishes for that select rustic charm. Our natural stone tiles come in a range of stone effects, with faux marbling, flecking and textured surfaces that make it indistinguishable from the real thing.
Choose from a range of luxurious marble effect tiles, authentic real wood look tiles or natural stone effect tiles. Our natural tiles are available in a variety of types including different colours, shapes, materials and sizes. After finding the perfect natural tiles for your home you can order your selection right here, or pop into one of our tile showrooms across the South of the UK.
Recreate rustic cabin looks or relaxing spa settings with our wood effect porcelain planks. You could even go for something more modern and different, like split face wood effect tiles. Using wood effect tiles on walls might seem like a weird idea, but we see more and more homes doing this and benefiting from the relaxing atmosphere that wood effect tiles provide in spades.
Alternatively, you could add a sense of luxury to your space by using stone effect wall tiles instead. Even though it's roots are based firmly in the traditional, stone effect tiles can help to modernise a space. There are loads of options to choose from here too, stone mosaics, split face, or even statement large format tiles! It's easy to balance the light in a room too as our stone effect tiles come in many different types and finishes.
Once reserved for high-end hotel bathrooms and day spas, you can now bring luxurious natural wall tiles into your home for less with our natural effect tile ranges. With a lower price tag, easier install, and no sealing or upkeep, it makes sense to use our natural effect tiles for your walls.
Always in demand and always on trend, natural stone effect floor tiles can elevate your home instantly. Wood effect floor tiles add a sense of nature and rustic charm to any area, and are harder wearing than the real thing! We find that these work particularly well in kitchens, hallways, and living rooms - and because they're made of porcelain they are perfect to use with underfloor heating systems!
Different types of stone effect flooring have different benefits, just like the natural stone does. Limestone is light and airy, whereas a slate is a dark statement tile that doesn't show dirt. You could go for an opulent and timeless marble effect look to bring a sense of space and grandeur into your home. Flagstone and modular flooring packs help to bring a traditional element into any space too.
You should always check the slip resistance of any floor tile in your home to make sure it's safe to use. All our floor tiles are rated R9 or higher, which is perfect for indoor use - even when wet.
No modern kitchen is complete with large format stone effect tiles - and lately we've seen the trend grow as people start to embrace them as wall coverings too. Stylistically, both stone and wood effect tiles work well in kitchen designs as they can exude a calming and relaxed atmosphere. They're also super practical too, never requiring sealing or maintenance beyond basic cleaning. Add to this the inherit stain resistance of porcelain tiles and it's a clear winner.
You should think about upkeep when choosing your natural effect tiles. Gloss tiles show up dirt, drips and stains more easily, so if your busy day to day life doesn't allow for daily cleaning we would recommend going for matt tiles that tend to hide these little accidents better.
There is added practicality here too in the form of SteriTile - a modern innovation that sees silver ions being used in the formation of the tile. These silver ions stop the growth of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms that invade our homes unseen. In short, tiles with SteriTile technology keep your family safe whilst also looking great - perfect for your kitchen area!
Whilst we see people using wood effect tiles in the bathroom to create a relaxing and rustic space, more often than not it's natural stone effect tiles that adorn walls and floors in bathrooms. And it stands to reason too, there is a sense of cleanliness and luxury in natural stone - something our stone effect tiles have in spades.
You could create a feature wall or add definition to the bath and shower areas with a stone mosaic, or use large format dark stone effect tiles to emulate the bathrooms seen in high end hotels and spas. Using the same coloured tile on walls and floors can create a seamless flow to your space - great for simple and relaxing rooms like bathrooms.
Again, it's important to keep in mind the slip resistance rating of tiles when used in flooring, and this is doubly true in bathrooms where there is moisture. R9 or higher is perfect to use in these kinds of settings - and tiles with textured surfaces or mosaics with more grout joints can add to the slip resistance.
Natural effect tiles aren't just for indoors! The popularity of wood effect tiles in place of wooden decking has exploded over the last few years, and it's easy to see why. Wood effect tiles don't rot, don't need sealing or recoating, and don't warp or bend. They look just like real wood, with none of the costly maintenance or upkeep that natural wood requires.
It's the same story with stone effect tiles too - they don't need sealing and they're much more hard wearing than their traditional stone counterparts. Many of our outdoor porcelain tiles are frost proof, weather proof, and stain resistant - add to this that they're harder than natural stone and won't crack - and you can see the benefits instantly.
You can also create a seamless flow from inside to outside your home with our Valverdi Indoor-Out ranges, having co-ordinating 10mm interior and 20mm exterior tiles unites your home and expands your living spaces.
