Timeless tones of grey are set to make classics of the new Ground range of tiles, launched by Ceramique Internationale. Created by Spanish tile manufacturer Azteca, the new Ground range comprises a trio of complementary styles designed to bring effortless chic to bathrooms and other living spaces.
The Ground glazed plain wall tiles in Grey and Snow provide a subtle backdrop of colour, that proves winter shades can bring warmth and tranquillity as well as elegance to a bathroom. Crisp rectified edges produce the double benefit of on-trend tight narrow grout joints and ease of maintenance.
These 300 by 600mm glazed plain tiles are designed to co-ordinate effortlessly with the similarly sized Ground glazed décor tiles in Guess Grey. This rectified accent tile offers a stunning herringbone design. Price only marginally above the plain version, it can be used to fashion an entire feature wall without breaking the bank.
Completing the Ground range trio is the large format, polished porcelain floor tile. This 600 by 600mm lapatto polished tile in Grey provides the perfect partner to the Ground plain and décor tiles. Like the glazed plain tile, its tight, narrow grout joints are bang on trend, while making it simple to keep the tiling in top condition.
Peter Vann, Director of Ceramique Internationale, said: “We have a strong partnership with Azteca, a company with 50 years of tile manufacturing expertise. They have a great reputation for creating modern classics that stand the test of time. This new range is also a great example of Spanish manufacturers adding value in order to compete with cheaper products – by offering points of difference rather than trading downwards. The wall tile body of the Ground collection is produced in a higher value white clay, as opposed to the classic locally sourced red clay of the Castellon region: the key benefit of which is to facilitate a much higher grade and smoother surface on which to incorporate the latest digitally printed images of the material being emulated. We believe this is something the more prestigious manufacturers will be looking at more and more in the coming years.”
