Before we get into the designs and details, let’s define what it means when you hear “large format tile.” With all of the new and innovative technologies of today, the meaning of large format tile has changed to encompass any tile that is larger than 15 inches and can be ceramic, porcelain, or stone.

One of the most important design elements in these tiles is the minimal grout area. This is because the material is so large that it provides more coverage and therefore, less grout is required. With less grout lines, many tiles put together can create a crisp, clean, wallpaper effect. Another plus is the ease of maintenance because we all know that grout cleaning is not the easiest task!

Now we can get into the styles and benefits of large format tiles. The large design of these tiles create a more modern look with a contemporary edge. They can be designed to mimic natural stone, concrete, metal and more!
