Ceramic tiles

Ceramic tiles are among the most popular and common types of tiles available in tile showrooms, and for good reason. 

They’re extremely versatile, durable, affordable, and can be used in any room. Thanks to their popularity, ceramic tiles come in a wide variety of styles and colours, so it’s easy to create the look you love.

Wood effect tiles

Warm wood is a look that’s hugely popular right now, and it’s easy to see why. Wood effect tiles add the warmth of real wood, but with the durability and easy-clean factor of real tile, so you get the best of both worlds.

Wood effect tiles are perfect for places like bathrooms and kitchens where you need something that’s easy to maintain without looking sterile and cold. These tiles are also great for creating feature walls.

Stone tiles

As their name suggests, stone tiles are made from natural stone materials such as limestone, marble, granite, slate, travertine quartzite and sandstone.

Their natural materials are often associated with a rustic, warm and tranquil aesthetic that is reminiscent of the great outdoors. Some natural stone tiles require specialist grouts and adhesives which the experts at our showroom can advise on.

As well as authentic natural stone tiles we also have a range of stone effect tiles at our tile showroom, so you can get the look of stone whatever your budget.

At Euxton Tiles and Bathrooms we have a fantastic range of tiles available while our staff can offer expert advice on tile suitability. So, whatever type of tile you prefer you’re sure to get fixed up with a visit to our showroom.
