The trend of the day will always influence the choices that are made for any property whether you are looking for a stone or a porcelain. This influences not only the colour of the floor that is chosen as well as the size of the tile that is used
Trends over recent years whether for traditional or contemporary schemes have led to large tiles becoming much more common. Contemporary schemes will often choose 60 x 60 cm tiles or larger. It is now commonplace for stone and porcelain tiles to be used in domestic houses to be 90 x 90 cm or larger. However a large tile has to suit the scale of the room. A room which is for example 2 metres wide will look out of scale with 90 x 90 cm tiles as there will only be two visible grout lines across the floor.
With traditional projects tiles which are 60cm wide and random flagstone lengths have become much more sought after. This size is available in the vast majority of natural stones and enables the end user to replicate a traditional flagstone size floor in almost any colour.
