Large Format Porcelain Tiles
20mm Thick Extra Large Porcelain Floor Tiles
In the porcelain tile world, large format usually refers to a tile that is larger than 600mm in width or length.
Large format porcelain tiles are a great way of creating the feeling of more space within a room by reducing the amount of joins, and which is a lot cheaper than splashing out on a seamless floor, such as a poured polished concrete floor.
As standard, the majority of our interior and exterior paving tiles are available in 600mm x 600mm, which universally fits and suits most environment. However, standard isn’t always desired and we often find that bigger is actually better!
Large Format Outdoor Floor Tiles
Bring your large format tiles outside with our durable and high load bearing, 20mm thick porcelain tiles.

Large Format Rectangle ‘Plank-Style’ Tiles
Create the illusion of a long space with plank-style, large format floor tiles. This format of tile can be installed in a number of ways producing stunning results and elongating a room, corridor or an open outside space.
Inline Tile Design Installation
Whether you choose a small or large width tile, installing your plank-style porcelain tiles into an inline, block formation can lengthen your space in the direction the tiles are pointing.
Staggered Tile Design Installation
Why not stagger the installation of each tile by 10% – 50% creating a ‘brickwork style’ effect. This style is traditionally seen in timber decking or interior installations, however you can now plank all styles of porcelain tiles including stone-effect, cement-effect, and of course timber-effect.
Herringbone or Chevron Tile Design Installation
This brilliant floor design utilises the plank format tiles in a ‘zig zag’ pattern connected either at a 45 or 90 degree angle, which nods to the traditional French flooring style, known to be first installed at the Chateau de Fontainebleau in 1539.
A certain amount a precision measuring and cutting will be involved in the design and installation, however our expert installation team is well-versed in this particular design and is on hand if you wish to use their services.
Alternate Width Tile Design Installation
A simple and effective flooring design, which utilises 2 or more widths to create a unique installation using either the inline or staggered method. This flooring design can introduce more contrasting grains and knots between each tile but being installed within the same colour range creating an interesting, complementary finish.
