Sarah's style tips

Sarah's style tipsThis summer, why not refresh the look of your bathroom or kitchen from B&Q's fantastic new range of tiles? Find them in any of its 359 new tile shops, located instore.

Large format tiles

This year's trend sees large format tiles with light subtle textures and minimal grout lines. The look is clean and modern, and minimises maintenance.

Plus, the large format looks great on both floors and walls. The Natura tiles from B&Q's new tiling range are a great example. 




Grey is showing to be a strong trend in tiling for 2012. As a colour, it works well in traditional or contemporary spaces, and goes with just about anything.

Grey tiles come in many varieties, from finished to rough slate styles, which look great on floors - or you could try matte linen for the walls.

Textured grey shades are also making their way onto other home accessories at B&Q this summer from cushions and lighting to curtains and rugs.


If you're after something cool and modern, then B&Q's new tiling range includes a great selection of contemporary monochrome tiling, available in a variety of styles including metals, slate, marble, glass and ceramics.

Monochrome-strip mosaic tiles are also available and look great in bathrooms while other tiles in the range play with a variety of modern textures and patterns.

Bright and colourfulSara

Tiles are a great way to add colour to a room's décor scheme. Why not try injecting some brightness into a bathroom with a bright blue wall of mosaic glass tiles? Or use colourful tiles as an alternative to artwork.

If you are not sure which tiles are right for you, then take advantage of B&Q's new sample tiles service. It allows you to purchase individual tiles to take home to ensure they are the right style for you.
