Every day more people are choosing large tile flooring for their interiors including relatively small areas such as kitchen and bathrooms. Newest tiles and designs are only available in large sizes. In every international flooring show, Everybodys’ focus is on large tiles. But, what happened to the old tiles? Why tiles are becoming bigger and bigger?

Big Tile is A Good Thing.

First of all, the new tiles are being big is not like your new pair of shoes are being two size too big for your foot and you have to return them. No matter how big is the tile’s size, it’s still much smaller than your floors that your installer will cover with your new tiles. If He uses big tiles, He will use fewer tiles to cover the area. If He uses small tiles, Then, He’ll use more tiles to cover the same area. Since the number of tiles on the floor is what causes the grout, fewer tiles will yield minimum grout lines. Fewer grout lines will result in a cleaner look and a more spacious feel in the room. Isn’t it good?

Large Tile Flooring Is Not New.

Unlike most people would think, large tile flooring is not a new thing. It has been around for more than 15 years in the form of expensive marble tiles. A 36″x36″ or 48″x48″ marble or even larger slabs used to be the only preference for expensive, high-end floors. Back then it wasn’t possible to produce porcelain tiles larger than 24″x24″. Besides, prior to inkjet printing and polished finish, porcelain tile was only a cheap alternative to marble flooring. Nobody thought that porcelain tile would be suitable for expensive houses.
