Topps Tiles’ Top Tiles of 2012
At Topps Tiles, we pride ourselves on having a wide range of high-quality, great-value tiles to suit all your needs. Yet some tiles do capture the imagination more than others, so we’ve rounded up our best tiles of 2012, based on your feedback…Best bathroom wall tile - Metro White
For that crisp and clean bathroom look, white is the obvious choice. The great thing about the Metro is that you can use white without it looking plain, as the interesting brick shape and glossy finish are what catch the eye - not the colour.
These tiles are styled on the classic London Underground look, and offsetting them with a flash of another shade creates a high-impact look which will have your guests talking.
One of our more succinct customers had this to say: "Easy to cut, no waste, look really good. Went up well. Good size too."Best kitchen wall tile - Metro
If you want your kitchen to really dazzle, choosing two contrasting colours is a great way to achieve this, and for that reason the entire Metro range is our top kitchen wall tile. Backdrop your hob and work surfaces with vibrant red and allow the nature light to bounce of the back wall with brilliant white - you’ll have a stylish kitchen worth talking about.
One of our customers even has a little tip to make the most of this look: "The finished look is much more expensive than the actual cost. We used a really pale grey grout to bring out the shape and bevelled edge on the tile. Very happy."Best floor tile - Brussels Polished Porcelain
The Brussels Polished Porcelain is one of our most popular floor tiles, and those who bought them last year were extremely impressed with the classy look they provide anywhere in the home. The classic design lends itself to many looks but the glossy finish is the key, providing a stunning look while still being hard-wearing enough to go in a kitchen or hallway.
Here’s what one customer had to say: "Used this tile in our bathroom floor and it looks stunning, we are always receiving compliments." Meanwhile, one hotelier was so pleased with the tile that it now graces the entire ground floor of the hotel!Best kitchen floor tile - Cora Terracotta
Terracotta is the ideal choice for a beautiful rustic kitchen - but the genuine article is hugely expensive and not very hard-wearing. Topps has produced this ceramic style with the aim of trying to combine that authentic look with a budget price tag, and our customers have deemed it a resounding success.
While there were plenty of five-star reviews from our customers, this one says it all: "We wanted a terracotta tile without the extra care hassle that goes with proper terracotta. This was a fraction of the price and looks great in our Victorian kitchen - a hint towards the traditional with a modern finish."Most versa-tile - Aspen Beige
Some people think of beige as boring, but it can be a really great way to offset the rest of your colour scheme, or provide an alternative to white in an area that needs to enjoy plenty of natural light. This Aspen Beige tile with textured matte finish is perfect for flooring in a high-traffic area or for making a hallway seem more streamlined.
One satisfied customer said the range is "exceptional value for the size and style", while the fact that these tiles can be used for a wall or floor make them "perfect for a wetroom".
Another noted: "I am ever so pleased with these tiles! My tiler cannot believe how little I paid for them."
So there you have it: the top tiles of 2012. So why not have a look around our range and start deciding on the winners for 2013?
