Trending: Printed Tiles

Whether you are building or renovating, tiling provides an easy way to create a style statement in your home that is uniquely you. Printed tiles are back in a big way, using digital printing technology to create tiles that double as a contemporary ceramic art piece.

InStyle Ceramics’ new digitally printed tiles don’t have to be confined to the bathroom. These masterfully decorated tiles can brighten any space with your own personal style and are sure to make a lasting impression.

Whether you’re in the market for classic shapes or mosaics, or you want something more daring like floor to ceiling graphic tiles, printed tiles allow you to create beautifully crafted spaces for your home that really make a statement.

To help get you inspired, we’ve compiled just some of the benefits and features of the range of decorative and printed tiles available now from InStyle Ceramics.

Mosaic and Decorative Printed Tiles

Mosaic tiles and decorative printed tiles are perfect for floor to ceiling tiled feature walls, flooring, and any space in the home where you wish to add your own signature style.

You can recreate that classic look in any space with mosaic tiles, offering orderly patterns and style for walls and floors alike. Decorative printed tiles are a popular option for the bathroom, as trends pull away from the all-white look and embrace colour and texture to create more opulent luxury.

The options with printed tiles are limited only by your imagination. After all, it’s all in the detail.

Graphic Tiles

Why choose between function and fashion when you can have both? Graphic tiles can transform any wall into a phenomenal artwork that will remain the talking point of your home for years to come. Graphic tiles are easy to clean and resist water damage, making them a durable art form for any space. Instead of covering up your walls with artworks, graphic tiles allow you to build your walls from art.

If solid colours or basic shapes just won’t cut it, graphic tiles could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Distressed Timber and Metallic Tiles

You can bring the outside in with the vintage look of distressed timber tiles or the rustic industrial style of metallic tiling.

Distressed timber tiles can provide your home with the look of timber flooring you always dreamed of, without the scuff marks, dents and maintenance that come with traditional timber floorboards.

Combining timber and metallic tiles creates a striking visual statement perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, home bars and entertaining areas.

Whatever your personal style, a uniquely bold option lies within the range of tiles available from InStyle Ceramics. With everything from timber-look tiles and metallics to modern graphic prints and mosaics, you don’t have to settle for anything less than the perfect image for your space.

Refresh Your Ensuite with European Bathroom Tiles | Perth WA

Refresh Your Ensuite with European Bathroom Tiles | Perth WA

Is it time to refresh your ensuite with luxurious bathroom tiles?

The ensuite is often the adult retreat in the family home – a little oasis where you can enjoy a peaceful moment of quiet bliss all to yourself. So you want your ensuite to have that look and feel of luxury, and European bathroom tiles from Perth’s InStyle Ceramics can offer that level of opulence. Whether you’re building a new home in Perth or across WA, renovating or simply updating your colour scheme, we have the latest tips and trends to help you choose the perfect bathroom tiles for your ensuite.

Matte or Gloss

Throughout 2017 we have seen the rising popularity of matte finish tiles. Glossy tiles provide an elegant, clean finish and can create a perception of more space, especially in small bathrooms. Matte bathroom tiles create the earthy feel and understated sophistication that is currently on trend for home styling and homewares. You may even like to consider timber tiles for that extra earthy appearance.

Floor to Ceiling

Make your walls a showpiece by replicating the European trend of floor to ceiling tiles. Even if you change nothing else, adding new tiles to your ensuite will make a bold styling statement. You can use bathroom tiles to create a feature wall, even a colourful mosaic or stick to a classic monochromatic colour scheme for a more clean, contemporary and subtle style.

Geometric Patterns

Tiles don’t have to run in straight lines, they don’t even have to be square or rectangular. You could create a bold statement piece in your ensuite by laying tiles in a variety of geometric patterns and shapes. This brings another dimension of texture and interest to your walls, adding to the personality and unique character of your ensuite and ultimately, your home.

Our lives today are so busy and so rushed, we all deserve to treat ourselves to that little moment of relaxation and luxury. With the help of InStyle Ceramics bathroom tiles, you can do that in European elegance and style, right here in your Perth home.

To start enjoying a little of that European holiday luxury every day, contact InStyle Ceramics or visit our showroom in Myaree.

5 Reasons to Choose Timber Tiles Over Natural Wood Floorboards

5 Reasons to Choose Timber Tiles Over Natural Wood Floorboards

Whether you’re building or renovating your home, you will need to think about flooring. Timber floorboards are a timeless and classic choice, but with wood-look tiling now available, should you buy timber tiles instead?

Advancements in design and production technology have made timber tiling not only a more durable and sustainable flooring material, but an attractive option too.

So you can enjoy the beauty of natural wood floors, with the practical durability and long lifespan of tiles.

Tiling offers many benefits for your new home or renovation. Here are just 5 reasons to choose timber tiles instead of natural wood floorboards.                      

1. Hard Wearing and Scratch Resistant

If you’ve ever had timber floorboards, or you know someone who has, you’ll be all too familiar with the constant worry about scratches and dents.

Timber floorboards are prone to scratches. Even those everyday activities like moving furniture, walking in high heels or even sitting on the couch can cause irreversible damage to delicate timber.

If you’re worried about visitors, pets or children scratching your floor, or accidental staining and damage, you could stress less with timber tiles.

Here at InStyle Ceramics we have a range of durable timber tiles perfect for your home.

Our timber-look tiles are made from porcelain, which makes them hard wearing and scratch resistant, so your home stays in style and beautiful for longer.

2. Temperature Resistant

Unlike natural timber, timber tiles do not expand and contract in varying temperatures, meaning they won’t warp over time.

This warping weakens the timber, and can lead to an uneven floor surface, noisy creaking floorboards and even cracks or gaps in the surface.

Timber tiles are secured with grout, which is styled to create a natural-looking join. The result is a strong, sturdy and secure flooring solution, built to last.

3. Easy to Clean and Maintain

Timber flooring is notoriously difficult to maintain, with the need for sealing and special cleaning products to keep floorboards looking their best. That means added downtime while you wait for polishing and sealing, which uses harmful chemicals and will require you to find alternative accommodation for several days with every polish.

Timber-look tiles are very low maintenance, and extremely easy to clean. They have a durable, non-porous and stain-resistant surface that ensures your timber tiles will look better for longer.                                                                                                             

4. Variety of Styles

We all love the beauty of natural wood. But timber contains many variants in colours and textures which can make it difficult to find the perfect floor for your home.

Wood-look tiles come in a wide range of colours and designs, and can be custom made to suit the unique colour-scheme and style of your home.        

Modern design and production technology allows us to tailor make the perfect timber tile for your needs.

5. Environmentally Friendly

Save a tree and get timber tiles instead. There is growing demand for eco-conscious and sustainable building materials for home and residential construction. Instead of adding to the demand for timber, wood-look tiles are created from porcelain and many are produced using recycled materials to reduce their environmental footprint.

If you are looking for a low-maintenance, long-lasting alternative to timber floorboards, and a sustainable and beautiful flooring solution, talk to us about timber-look tiles today.

Floor Tiles in Perth, Western Australia

Ceramic Floor Tiles Suppliers for Kitchen & Bathrooms

Tiled flooring has become increasingly popular in Western Australian homes due to its low maintenance, beautiful aesthetics and variety of options. At InStyle Ceramics, we supply floor tiles that tick all the boxes. We have a great selection of ceramic tiles for your kitchen and bathroom that will add a touch of flair and beauty to your home. Different styles suit different parts of a home; so make sure you chat to a professional about which style would best suit your intended tiling area. Contact a design consultant at InStyle Ceramics today and make an informed decision about your tiled flooring.

One of the greatest benefits of tiled flooring is that tiles do not conduct heat. In Western Australia, the heat is unbearable, and wooden or laminated flooring retains heat making your home that much warmer. A tiled floor will keep your room cool because of the ceramic composition, while adding significant visual appeal. Whether you choose a matte or gloss finish, a dark or light tile, you are guaranteed an eye-catching, smart looking surface that will stand out. Tiles are also stain resistant and easier to clean; no need to worry about guests spilling wine or scuffing your floors.

Kitchen floor tiles

As the hub of your home, your kitchen needs to stand out. The floor is often overlooked because most people concern themselves with finishes and appliances. The floor is equally as important, if not more so, as it acts as a blank canvas for you to decorate. If your kitchen floor is not tiled to perfection in the most suitable style then the rest of your kitchen décor will hardly have an impact. Choose neutral-coloured kitchen floor tiles without busy patterns, and opt for a larger tile, especially in a bigger kitchen. The lighter colours, along with the bigger size, will create an expanding effect in the area. Tiles are the most common flooring type for kitchens because they are easy to clean; simply wipe away food or drink spillage and enjoy cooking without the mess or stress.

Bathroom floor tiles

Whether it is a guest bathroom or an en-suite sanctuary, the style of floor tile you choose should reflect the overall style of your bathroom. You can be a bit more creative in this area of your home, using accessories and finishes to complement the floor style, resulting in a magnificent bathroom. You can use interesting floor patterns with a mosaic-style option to evoke a rustic character, or keep it simple and elegant with perfect symmetry. Glossy finishes work well in bathrooms with a lot of light as the reflection gives the illusion of a larger space. If you are opting for a more romantic feel, try stone-coloured matte tiles. Add a dim light or candles for a more intimate atmosphere.

No matter what design you choose, a tiled floor will always have a certain fresh style to it that cannot be imitated. Set a trend with unique tiles from InStyle Ceramics, our showroom offers a range of inspiration for your home floors.
