Large format tiles

Large floor and wall tiles create an atmosphere of beauty, sophistication and luxury. Small areas appear bigger as the large tile enhances the space, creating a clean uncluttered feel.  The less grout lines, the less busy your floor is and the more expansive it appears. Making rooms feel larger not only adds a more inviting feel to your home, it can also enhance the resale value of your home.
