large format vs mosaic tiles

Preferences for wall tile sizes are becoming more divided. Large format tile or small mosaic gems are replacing regular four and half inch square tiles. So which do you go for? Well, generally it depends on the size of room and the look you’re trying to achieve but consider these pros and cons of each and you’ll make a more informed decision.

A tile or stone larger than 16” x 16” is generally described as ‘large format’. Large format tiles expand the space so are good for smaller rooms, although in really small rooms they can look a bit overpowering. They are easy to maintain; there is less grout due to fewer joins and narrow grout joint widths and more tile surface so cleaning them is easier than regular tiles (it is easier to clean a tiles’ surface than to clean grout). The large surface area makes the space look cleaner, and avoids the checkerboard look of regular sized tiles.

Large format tiles can be used both for traditional style bathrooms and kitchens and more modern sleek styles too. They are good for a minimalist streamlined look, and add a timeless accent to your room.
