The Versatile Brick Format

Even the smallest tiling project can transform a room and it can be done with the simplest of tiles so you don't have to break the bank (if you don't want to!) without compromising on style. Our Diamante range is an elongated brick tile with a subtle bevelled edge and glossy finish. Available in eleven colours, the range can be used in any home to create a versatile statement.

 

Classic WhiteA white tile doesn't have to be boring, dressing up a classic white with metallic fixtures and a darker grout colour is currently the style most influencers are obsessed with. Brass is huge this coming season, we love this metal antiqued and paired with other neutral shades like this pink bath. Throw in a couple of pops of colour like cobalt blue and charcoal, as they will add depth and tone to the room bringing it to life.

 

Rich BlueDark and moody blues have been around all season and are set to continue in the autumn. These rich glossy tones are perfect for creating a multitude of dramatic looks. Try a clean and streamlined industrial style with sleek chrome, metal worktops and vintage accessories. Alternatively, pair this shade of blue with pinks and white marble for a more feminine touch.

 

Country CreamCalm and quaint, this creamy hue works perfectly with white without it looking dirty making it the perfect tile for a smaller space. When paired with wood panelling or a wooden worktop in the kitchen it creates an instant country vibe. For a more modern touch, try a light grey grout to contrast with the cream. We love this tile paired with crisp whites, light greys and rustic wood.

 

Pretty PastelsWhen are pastels not on trend?! Lighter pastel tones work brilliantly in the home as they add colour whilst retaining all the natural light allowing a room to feel like a breath of fresh air. Pair the look with warmer woods if you're not into a stark feeling interior, layering different textures will have a similar effect.

Choosing a burnish metal over a bright one, for example nickel instead of chrome, will also have a warming effect. However, if you love those sleek lines opt for a marble sink, chrome taps and add a little life with some greenery.

 

Laying PatternsIt's not only the colour choice of a brick tile that can transform a room, consider laying these rectangular tiles in a different pattern to the common brick bond and you can add a little drama or even change the proportions of a room. Laying these tiles in a linear pattern can make a traditional colour look more contemporary but it's herringbone that's the current favourite; this trend stems from the revival of the parquet floor and can make a room look higher and wider than a regular brick bond could.
