Hot Tiles for Hot Offices in Cool Kensington
When you need to make the right impression with your exclusive London hot office suites, what do you want for the walls and floors? Ultra-stylish Porcel-Thin tiles, of course. This refurbishment project used a brilliant blend of extra-large-format porcelain tiles from our Leviathan collection, marvellous marble-effect tiles from our Ferrara collection and our super-cool Cemento Structure Concrete tiles.
How hot is the property?
Hot-desking, where workers can rent work spaces by the hour or by the day, are a big thing in the Big Smoke. Collaborative working spaces and remote workers are both becoming increasingly common and places such as this Kensington suite of high quality hot offices and conference suites are where the smart money’s at.
The property investment and development company at the head of this six-month long refurbishment project wanted something super-chic that oozed both functionality and flair. The brief: To create neat office/conference spaces with cloakroom and kitchen facilities over two floors in London’s swanky West End. The result: Sensational marble flooring and marble-effect wall tiles alongside concrete-effect tiles for a contemporary twist on timeless styling.
Every ultra-thin tile in their place…
- Main walls– All walls in the communal spaces, including the corridors, kitchen splashbacks and toilet walls (other than the disabled toilets) were decked in the stunning pure white Calacatta Borghini with subtle silver veining from the extra-large format Leviathan collection (240cm x 120cm). The polished finish on these luxury white marble tiles gives the hot offices sizzling style.
- Toilet floors – The floors of the toilets and the walls of the disabled toilets are kitted out with Cemento Zement. These delicately dove-grey concrete effect tiles measure 120 x 60cm and boast a structured surface finish that not only adds urban-chic to the interior design project but also brings non-slip action.
- Floor boarder tile – For extra panache, the floors were bordered with the impressive Leviathan Spartan River that rock a lovely latte tone and a polished finish. These wow-factor leviathan beauties measure a whopping 240 x 120cm. Now, that makes a statement!
- Stairs – Ferrara Arabescato Arabescato Square White Marble Tiles take centre stage on this posh property’s staircase. These wonderfully white Arabescato marble-effect tiles with dark and soulful character veins are reproduced on large-format porcelain squares (1m x 1m) for a sensational seamless finish. Porcelain tiles with a matt finish were used here for maximum slip-resistance in this high-traffic zone.
- Reception walls – The walls of the downstairs reception area have been glammed up with Ferrara Arabescato Square marble 1m x 1m square tiles in a polished finish for luxury at first-look.
