With temperatures dropping and a chill in the air, we’re finding ourselves dreaming of cosying up to a nice warm fire.
As striking as they are functional, tiles are the perfect option for around the fireplace. Firstly, and most importantly they are fire resistant! Tiles get fired at more than 1200 degrees and are not a flammable material. This means you can choose any porcelain or ceramic tile to reflect your personality and style. Tile Space has thousands of different designs and each look will give a feel to your home. For a rustic feel, choose wood-look or stone-look tile or for a more contemporary and premium feel opt for marble-look.
Raw concrete-look tile is all the rage in industrial style, we love how it becomes a focal point in the room.
