Extend your tile offering with supersized surfaces from Verona
Verona has extended its Grande large format collection, adding seven versatile new designs to its popular portfolio of tiles.
Influenced by the popularity of open plan living, the trend for oversized interiors still continues to be embraced in UK homes, across floors and walls, both indoors and outdoors.
The ultimate surface solution no matter the size of the room, large format tiles are an ideal option when creating the illusion of space, offering a stunning surface covering with less grout lines for a seamless design aesthetic.
Made from durable, hardwearing porcelain, the Grande collection features a wide range of modern designs and stone effects, bringing natural materials to the home in a large format. From classic marble through to distressed concrete, this updated collection caters for all interior schemes from raw and industrial with an urban edge through to softer, more feminine designs. Each range offers a realistic stone effect recreating the look of natural materials on a porcelain tile, with multiple different faces for authenticity.
A statement tile that also delivers on practicality, Grande can be installed in bathrooms, kitchens, hallways or conservatories thanks to its waterproof properties, without any special installation or maintenance needed.
Offering a mix of muted, earthy colours including pale beige and charcoal greys, these versatile shades are designed to complement existing furnishings and decor. The new multiuse tiles are available in three different sizes depending upon the design:
- Valmalenco - With a subtle textured effect Valmalenco offers plenty of textural appeal without overpowering the room. Available in a 45 x 90cm size in beige, grey and black.
- Stone Cement - Similar to the texture of cement, this design delivers intricate detail to create a unique, raw effect. Available in grey and anthracite in a 61 x 121cm size.
- Tatton and Ascot - A blotted colour effect combined with a semi polished lappato finish gives these tiles a gentle shine, reflecting light to every corner of the room. Available in Tatton Grey and Ascot Silver in a 60 x 120cm format, it is also offered in a 60 x 60cm size as part of the Al Fresco collection, with a matt finish.
To support the launch of this extended collection, Verona has developed new marketing assets to better support retailers in promoting Grande in store. Striking, specially designed display stands are available to showcase all the tile ranges with each display stand holding up to 14 samples alongside room set images to show the tiles in a lifestyle setting for inspiration.
