New tiles, new size!

While you might think we are always banging on about the greatness of large-format, ultra-thin tiles have you ever stopped to think about how great they actually are? Not only do bigger, lighter tiles take less time and manpower when it comes to installation but they also create fewer grout lines. This means the overall effect is a more continuous and authentic marble pattern, whatever the size of your space, and that there are fewer gullies where grime can gather – adding to that antibacterial action.

Our new Bac-Tech tiles come is an extra special large-format size of 1400x800x6mm, providing a greater surface area than our standard large-format tiles and bring even more of those benefits outlined above. They are hugely pretty and hugely practical, worth crowing about, no?

Six marble marvels

Since the sculptors and architects of ancient Greece brought the Parthenon Marbles to the Acropolis of Athens, any space featuring a murmur of marble has become synonymous with wealth, luxury and power. But did you know that when you choose porcelain marble effect tiles you are signing up for all the opulence of marble and so much more?

While natural marble is heavy to install, is prone to wear and can be difficult to maintain, marble effect porcelain tiles are ultra-thin, lightweight, hardwearing (even at extremes of temperature and moisture) and low-maintenance. What is more, whether you are channelling the Greek masters or urban-contemporary is your muse, our Bac-Tech tiles come in six sensational shades that are sure to satisfy your interior design desires: Amazingly authentic Arabescato; gorgeously gold-flecked Alabastrino; pale and interesting Galala; cool and sultry Alaska Grey; rich and regal Lavender Blue marble; and dark and soulful Grigio Alpi.

But marble is not the only classic look that Porcel-Thin has nailed; our wood effect porcelain tiles are a design revelation. From tantalising Tigerwood with its rich caramel tones to smooth and chocolatey Teak to ravishing Rosewood with its characterful contrasting knots, our antibacterial wood effect tiles are sure to shiver your timbers.  Who says wall and floor covering cannot be sanitary and stylish too?

Funky finish

The entire Bac-Tech antibacterial tile collection is available in a chic and shiny polished finish. However, our Arabescato marble offering is also available in a matt finish – for understated charm as well as added slip-resistance when used as a floor tile – and comes with two further finish options, hammered and linen, for added textural interest and ultimate style.
