Take a look at our UK-manufactured ceramic wall tiles and give your home a stylish makeover

Tempted by colour, but a bit nervous of the effect? It’s understandable. The appeal of white tiles is that they’re never wrong, but sumptuous colour gives your interior a rich quality that is deeply satisfying. And there are so many options.

Rich colour that doesn’t overpower

Take our Savoy range of UK-manufactured ceramic wall tiles; seven colours in a very contemporary palette, each carefully shaded across individual tiles. This softens the colour-block effect and creates depth. It makes a statement, but doesn’t overpower the space. The result is a warm welcoming room that’s very restful to the eye.

Textural interest

If you’re worried that a fully tiled wall is just too much, then a half-tiled wall, with toning paintwork above, as in the top picture, can give the best of both worlds.

However, floor-to-ceiling tiles offer plenty of opportunities with the right range. Each colour in the Savoy range comes with a matching Décor option. Spread these textured tiles randomly across the wall, or create a band to divide the surface area.

Or take a leaf out of the book of traditional interiors by incorporating skirting and chair rails, but in ceramic, rather than the usual wood. These, not only break up the space, but alter the plane of the wall with their contours, catching the light differently and adding textural interest.

Don’t feel constrained to using matching colours. A black or white chair rail adds a pleasing contrast that will work with any of the colours.

Colour combinations

For extra interest, consider combining colours. The Savoy colour palette is full of shades that complement each other. Blending them into a pattern is a design option for putting your personal stamp on your home décor.

Choice of laying patterns

The choice of brick-shaped tile opens up a whole new dimension in decorating. Far more versatile than a square format, the brick shape offers the fascinating choice of what laying pattern to employ.

Savoy Sage ceramic wall tiles, with contrasting chair rail tiling. This design is a great example of stacked bond tiling (below) and running bond (above)
  • Stacked bond, where edges line up, for a crisp, static design that really emphasises the rectangular shape of the tiles.
  • Running bond, where the vertical joint is staggered, has a more horizontal emphasis.
  • Herringbone adds a dynamic energy.
  • Basket weave, where a block of two tiles is placed at right angles to another block, making a strongly geometric pattern.

British-made ceramic tiles spell quality

"Manufactured in the UK" has a reassuring ring of quality, especially with ceramics. These British-made ceramic tiles are no different, with their high-gloss long-lasting finish and subtle surface colour effect that will grace any home. Not only do they come in at a competitive £21.50 + vat, but we're pleased to offer a lead time of only seven to fourteen days.
