TAKE TO THE FLOOR WITH STYLISH NEW COORDINATING RANGES
With the demand for fully coordinated wall and floor combinations increasing and following the successful launches of a number of wall tile ranges during 2010, British Ceramic Tile is pleased to announce that a selection of in-house manufactured floor tiles are also now in production
The new floor tiles offer a collection of versatile, hard-wearing, design-led options and are available in 333x333mm. They can be used in a range of both contract and retail environments from kitchens, reception areas, bathrooms and conservatories.
Sheila Elliott, Creative Director for British Ceramic Tile comments, ‘The new floor tiles provide total co-ordination with some of our most popular wall tile ranges and also work well as standalone solutions. Floor tiles are being widely used throughout the home and this latest collection has been designed with that in mind. They provide a selection of practical and stylish design options for use in a variety of environments.’
The latest additions have a stronger body, improved glazes and increased PEI ratings compared to the previous in-house manufactured products.
To co-ordinate with the recently launched Dorchester collection there will be a new Travertine, Onyx white, Calacatta and Carrara in a gloss finish.
The new Nero Black floor tile is shown below right with Dorchester Carrara in a classical chequered combination, showing there is clearly no need to limit their use into simply kitchen and bathroom areas.
The Elgin Cappuccino cream matches the current wall products and will also complement the beige mosaic as shown in the image below.
The Brighton White and Willow Light floors both have linear effects complementing their corresponding wall tiles, and offering 2 new popular white options, one on gloss and one with a matt finish.
The light colour palette and commercial designs provide a versatile collection which will work across a wide range of products.
The Terracotta floor has the finished look of authentic aged terracotta. The natural tones will provide a warm ambiance to any kitchen or conservatory.
The Salisbury floor has been designed as part of a range which is now available to all markets, and co-ordinates with all five colourways of the Salisbury wall tile collection.
The new floor tiles have been produced under the ISO9001 and ISO14001 management systems, reaching international quality and environmental standards respectively. Durable, stain and chemical resistant, the tiles have also been rated between 3 & 4 by the Porcelain Enamel Institute (PEI), measuring the wear and resistance of glazed tile surfaces.
