Large Format Tiles- Fylde Coast Tile Shop

Large Format Tiles- Fylde Coast Tile Shop

With such a wide variety of tiles available today, you are no longer limited to small formats/sizes!

A great tip is to consider large format tiles. Large format files require fewer grout lines and this size of tile tricks the eye into thinking the room appears larger than it is.

A porcelain tile will be the best choice, without any doubt, to pave any surface, interior or exterior. The large format tile offers the feeling of continuity in space. This sense of continuity causes spaces to appear larger than they really are.

As well as smaller rooms, large format tiles do work well in big rooms (since you can cover more space) too! Take a look at these Houzz articles for more inspiration…

Not only do we have an extensive selection of 75cm x 75cm, 90cm x 90cm and 60cm x 120cm tiles in stock, we can also supply Rubi cutters to enable the tilers to complete the project with ease. Take a look at our Andes range here.

Big thanks to Andy from A&M Cain Property Developments for purchasing a Rubi TX-1250 MAX!

LVT Stockist Blackpool Fylde Wyre Area

SPC Vinyl Flooring Stockist Blackpool Fylde Area

SPC Vinyl Flooring Stockist Blackpool Fylde Area- We’re branching out …

We are now able to supply quality vinyl flooring in 5 stunning colours.

SPC (Stone Plastic Composite) rigid flooring is set apart from other types of vinyl flooring by its resilient core layer. This core is made from a combination of natural limestone powder, polyvinyl chloride, and stabilizers. This provides an incredibly stable base for each flooring plank.

Each plank of SPC rigid vinyl flooring is constructed with the following layers:

  • Wear layer: This transparent layer is at the top. It provides resistance to scratches and stains and is easy to keep clean.
  • Vinyl layer: This layer provides the decoration for the plank. Colors and patterns are printed onto the vinyl.
  • SPC layer: This is the dense, waterproof core for the plank made of natural limestone powder, polyvinyl chloride, and stabilizers. It provides rigidity and stability for the plank.
  • Pre-attached underpad: This layer is generally made from IXPE or EVA foam, which provides sound insulation and cushioning.

There are so many benefits to using vinyl flooring and it is something that has risen in popularity over the last year. Some of the benefits are as follows:

SPC is on the affordable end of the spectrum but is slightly more than other vinyl options. The cost of vinyl plank vs hardwood is immeasurable. Real wood floors average around £45.00-£55.00 per m2 whereas SPC varies between £20-£40m2.

It is an attractive alternative to wood floor that can be hard to tell from the real thing. Vinyl plank comprises of a photographic layer sealed between the backing and a clear top layer for wear. High-quality digital pictures of actual real wood samples lay the groundwork for the different styles.

Hardwoods eventually have to be refinished and Lino doors require waxing and maintenance over the years. Caring for luxury vinyl is as easy as sweeping and mopping. Mop once a week with a gentle cleaner and a microfibre mop.

Vinyl plank is hard wearing. It’s resistant to staining, scratching, and dents left from heavy furniture. The durable wear layer provides extra protection.

The thicker the flooring, the more durable the product is. A thicker floor is better for high traffic areas and it can also make the most of a less than perfect subfloor.

SPC is a great choice where moisture is a concern, including kitchens and bathrooms. Its synthetic appearance makes it completely waterproof and is resilient to accidents from pets and children!

The ease of installing SPC is where it really outshines the competition. There’s no nailing or power tools needed! Planks cut easily with a knife. It’s the perfect floor to DIY.

Why choose Porcelain tiles?

Why choose Porcelain tiles? Porcelain tiles are as popular now as they have ever been. But why choose porcelain tiles over other options such as ceramic or stone for your home? Here we explore the benefits to be gained from the use of porcelain tiles.

Low Water Absorption

Their extremely low water absorption makes porcelain tiles the perfect choice for bathrooms, kitchens, wet-rooms and even swimming pools!

Greater Stain Resistance 

Along with being more water resistant than ceramic and stone tiles, porcelain tiles also benefit from greater stain resistance thanks to their denser, less porous properties.

Hard Wearing

Because porcelain tiles are much harder than ceramic tiles, they are an ideal choice for use on floors, being able to withstand the wear and tear that comes with them. 

Variety of Designs

But it’s not just all about substance with porcelain tiles; they certainly don’t scrimp on style either, and porcelain tiles come in a variety of styles and designs. Porcelain tiles can mimic natural stone such as limestone and granite, or other natural materials such as wood.

Polished porcelain tiles not only look fantastic, but they further decrease the tile’s water and stain absorption, along with adding the wow factor to any room!

Pop into our showroom on Red Marsh Industrial Estate, Thornton to have a look at our brand new range and many more of our porcelain options.

Where to tile in your bathroom...

Where to tile in your bathroom…

Where to tile in your bathroom… Are you struggling with the thought of redesigning or restyling your bathroom? One issue you may come across is where should you tile- Floor to ceiling? Just in the shower area? Half way? Whatever your choice, bare in mind that it could also affect the cost of your project, since tiling is a skilled job.

Chevron mixed with Hexagon tiles

Tiling the bare minimum…

You can almost do away without any wall tiling at all, covering only the floor with luxurious marble tiles or a decorative ceramic/porcelain tile to really create an eye catching feature. 

Walls plastered in micro-cement can be sealed to ensure waterproofing, and there are various equivalent options for bricks, depending on whether you paint them or leave them bare.  Always get a professional opinion about waterproofing areas that will get very wet, as the consequences of even the smallest opportunities for water to go where it’s not meant to can cause long-term bathroom pain.

Tiling half way…

If you choose to run tiles around the walls uniformly at shoulder height, this creates a streamlined, very neat look. The details that make this style of tiling work are the choice of paint colour on the walls above, and the trim, which is key to helping tiles run nicely into a plain wall.

Floor to ceiling…

Floor-to-ceiling tiles can lend a real air of swish hotel style, to a bathroom. The key to keeping the whole look airy and bright is a pale palette.

Where natural light is lacking, visual continuity can really help to open up a dark room. Another great tip is that larger tile options can have the effect of stretching a smaller space, therefore making your bathroom appear bigger and more spacious.

A bright room lends more scope for a busier choice of tile – for example, a smaller in size and varied in tone option. 

Make half tiling have a purpose

Half tiling your bathroom walls could be the star of the show, yet it barely covers half of the room. Metro tiles standout by laying them in a herringbone pattern and at the same time, the painted sections feel deliberate.

If you’ve fallen for more expensive tiles, but aren’t sure the budget will stretch, consider using them in a small area of the bathroom. Here, a patterned design forms an extended splashback behind the basin, yet still makes quite the impact. 

Reduce usage even more if needs be by choosing just enough tiles to protect the area directly behind the basin. Keep other tiles plain to maximise your feature.

Remember- It pays to seek advice from professionals, get a couple of quotes from various tilers, plumbers and building contractors- but never settle for the cheapest!

Where to tile in your bathroom… So if you are struggling and need inspiration and design ideas- pop into our showroom based on Red Marsh Industrial Estate, Thornton. Only 10 minutes from Blackpool and 20 minutes from the motorway.

Keep it local! If you want tiles.. It has got to be Fylde Tiles!
