More than just a tile!

Tiles are usually thought of as the foundation for a wall or floor and most people really only use tile for those two applications. It is also very common to see tile used as an artistic accent or a beautiful back-splash. Porcelanosa Gruppo would like to share their out of the box uses for tile, as a source of inspiration for your next home design project. These ideas will make you think of tile as more than just a functional choice.

The concept of a headboard can also work nicely as more of an abstract feature, in the form of tiling the wall adjacent to the bed. It offers a striking floor-to-ceiling focal point and is an easy way to add drama to your bedroom.

Among the advantages of using large format tiles, the most common is the aesthetically pleasing and open look that they can give to any residential or commercial applications as well as the easier maintenance resulting from fewer grout joints. Using large format tiles can also add a dramatic effect to a wall or floor with the many variations of patterns that can be created.
