Home Living : July 12th 2011
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 12, 2011 9 HOMELIVING Tile size does matter Interior design trends change and are often driven by lifestyle choices. In Australia, there has been a major trend in the past few years to blur the line between indoors and outdoors, particularly in a moderate climate. Floor and wall treatments have changed to accommodate this trend, with many stylists now using a large tile format on living, kitchen and bathroom floors. Amber's indoor product specialist Kate Lane said large tiles -- 600mm x 600mm -- were being chosen for open-plan living, with continuous colour and design flowing from the kitchen to the living area and the covered outdoor patio area. ''It creates a seamless flow-through and gives the impression of space and light,'' Ms Lane said. ''Bathroom floors have also attracted the larger tile format and 300mm x 300mm is now the norm. Tilers have struggled with larger formats because in some states in Australia, for instance NSW, there is a requirement for two drainage holes, one in the shower and one in the floor, which makes it harder to lay the larger sizes.'' In response to these issues, there are now strip drainage solutions in stainless steel or aluminium which make it easier to have large tile formats in the bathroom. Wall treatments are following the large tile trend as well and make an excellent choice for bathrooms and kitchens as they create the illusion of space, especially when the tiles are light- coloured gloss.
