Benefits of Large Format Tiles

Large format tiles are easy to clean and create far fewer grout lines to worry about cleaning than traditional sized or mosaic tiles. Cleanliness isn’t the only reason why large format tiles are so popular, though! Larger tile can create a greater sense of spaciousness and continuity in small and large bathrooms alike, and are the ideal choice for modern and contemporary styles.

Since wood look tiles give you all the benefits of tile with the look of wood, you get the best of both worlds: beautiful flooring and wall designs that’s also way easier to maintain than traditional wood. It’s a win-win!
