Glazes are back in a big way… and looking set to last with durable, hi-tech lustrous effects. Whether re-creating the beauty of highly polished natural stone or adding gloss to a vivid pattern or texture, the broad range of Spanish tiles with this sleek finishing touch offers valuable design versatility.
Neo Stone Age
The ability to create ultra large formats, extruded textures and refined finishes in a strong slender ‘sheet’ of tile has allowed the Spanish tile industry to explore and optimise all the benefits of advanced porcelain – from high-traffic functionality to the subtle beauty of the newest stone effects. Applications range from floor to wall to worktop.
Whether in tile designs offering wood or brick effects… and whether on the wall or the floor – the herringbone pattern is currently king! This enduringly elegant motif can be creatively achieved and easily installed by working with the very latest in Spanish ceramics.
Combining 3D effects with fascinating patterns, the Spanish tile industry is looking to the future
of ceramic design with typical verve. A range of creative new tiling options include mazes of
linking lines and jigsaw shapes that draw the eye with intriguing yet elegant aesthetics.
As technology in ceramics pushes forward, so all the inspiring possibilities for striking
design effects are being explored by an ever-innovative Spanish tile industry. One such
advance is in inkjet technology which allows for eye-catching and glamorous metallic looks,
from highly-reflective finishes to more restrained or textured effects.
The allure of wood grain, as reliably reproduced by non-porous, low-maintenance Spanish tiles, continues to be hugely popular. The latest looks range from a patchwork effect of mixed timber boards to panel style wall-cladding and stripped pine effects – enabling surfaces that are both beautiful and robust to be easily installed.
