The winter months are officially upon us, so it’s time to start thinking about lighting the fire and creating a cosy interior space to feel warm and comfortable during the worst of the cold. At Stone & Surfaces Direct, we have all the supplies you require to design an atmospheric fireplace and inviting living area this winter.
Fireplaces are often situated within one of the busiest rooms in the house; the living room. They ooze plenty of character for an all year round feature but are particularly a charming focal point as the cold nights become more prevalent.
Whether you are looking to create a contemporary look or prefer more of a modern vibe, we have plenty of choice when it comes to interior tiles to reflect your personal taste.
To help you decide what sort of fireplace appearance you might want to go for, we have put together a list of interior tiles we know are perfect for creating a fireplace surround.
Our moody-looking Midnight Black Porcelain Tiles are the perfect option if your living room features plenty of rich colours, such as deep blues, reds, and greens. Although a dramatic look, the bold presence of black will really bring your fireplace forward from the rest of the room as an aesthetically pleasing focal point.
Plus, when you choose porcelain tiles you can rest assured that they are fade resistant. Therefore, natural sunlight won’t drain the colour from the slabs. Porcelain is also scratch and dent resistant, so you needn’t worry about ornaments or fireside tool sets scraping the tiles.
These bold-colour interior tiles are available in two sizes, 600x600mm and 600x900mm, depending on the size of your fireplace.
If you are creating a modern living room featuring shades of white, grey, silver, or beige; our Pearl White Porcelain Tiles are a crisp-looking choice for a clean look. In the winter months, white tiles also provide a frosty appearance that can often feel homely, cosy, and festive.
Decorate with some simplistic decorations during the festive season and you have yourself an elegant feature that really speaks for itself. As well as this, a marble effect can look instantly expensive in any home. That’s the great thing about porcelain paving, you can achieve the exact look of natural stone but for a fraction of the price with a huge range of other benefits.
Last but not least, we thought we’d meet somewhere in the middle of black and white tiles and recommend our Misty Grey Porcelain Tiles. This tile effect is ideal for creating a number of different looks, from ultra-modern to a little more contemporary, depending on your taste.
Highly versatile, brilliant quality, and colour maintaining; these porcelain tiles form a neutral design that easily be enhanced by subtle home decor.
