Crossville’s porcelain tile collections reflect the latest in distinctive design—often looking ahead to future trends. Our products combine brilliant-to-subtle colors, a multitude of sizes and beautifully crafted decorative details to offer diverse and near-limitless installation opportunities.
Large-format tiles, like our sought-after Laminam by Crossville line, are extremely popular in today’s décor. Many of Crossville’s products are available in larger sizes—up to 24 x 24 tiles and 12 x 36 planks. The beauty of large-format tile is that it creates an open field with fewer grout lines. Whether tiling a small bathroom or a very large space such as a lobby or school dining hall, large-format tiles create a feeling of natural, unbroken space.
Today’s tiles come in an incredible array of colors and color palettes. From neutral and subdued, to bold and opulent, Crossville offers a shade for every mood, space and style.
With more options than ever before, it’s even more important to consider some key elements when selecting tile color:
- Does the space have natural, overhead or ambient lighting? Cooler tones may look harsh in artificial lighting, while limited lighting may dull a vibrant color.
- Is this a high traffic area? Heavy traffic areas may not be best suited for lighter, low-variation tiles, or very dark tiles that may show dust.
- What other elements exist in the room’s décor? Is there wallpaper, lots of furniture or a dominant color scheme? Softer, neutral tones may provide the right contrast to busy patterns on walls or upholstery, creating a more open feel for the room. Deep colors may add warmth to a large space, or help to showcase light wood furniture or fabrics.
Tile patterns mix colors and sizes to achieve clever designs that instantly customize an environment. Custom patterns are easy to create using contrasting light and dark tiles, or contrasting finishes—especially when using Crossville’s Design Tools for floor patterns, backsplashes and more. Framing the tile flooring with a border of mosaics or liners gives a clever, area-rug effect. Mixing modular sizes adds an unexpected touch of whimsy. The pattern possibilities are nearly endless.
