Large Format Tiles

We can supply over 65 different large format tile designs,  not including the options of large format marble effect book match – so honestly, there’s definitely something to suit your unique taste here at La Fabrico!

What is a Large Format Tile?

The term ‘large format tile’ refers to tiles from 80x80cm upwards. At La Fabrico we offer multiple options of large format tile choices from 80x80cm right up to an extraordinary 162x324cm. These include 80x80cm and 90x90cm tiles from our standard ranges, as well as specialist products from Coverlam and Marazzi Grande. These two product ranges also offer fabrication in the same pattern, for a truly minimal, contemporary design flow.

Our larger-sized tiles are produced in an ultra-thin thickness to allow for easier handling, installation and opens up the option to overlay existing tiles with minimal effect on your wall thicknesses and wall heights.  

Also, a good thing to note - sales of the more traditional 60x60cm tiles have plummeted over the last year, with sales of 80x80cm soaring – so you will be bang on trend choosing these tiles for your next project or renovation. This size is normally used on the floor and is known as a floor tile, however we are also seeing these large tiles being used on the walls.

What are The Advantages of Using Large Tiles?

Other than staying up to date with latest design trends and reducing risk of your property looking prematurely dated, the benefits of large tiles are:


Minimal Grout Joints let’s start with the greatest point! Lots of grout joints can make a room look too busy as your eyes dart around the place trying to take it all in. With larger tiles, your backdrop becomes calmer and easier on the eye; they also create space.

Overlay Existing Tiles – although large format is the perfect choice for new buildings, their thinness also makes them perfect for overlaying existing tiles.

They are Hygienic – thanks to porcelain’s non-porous properties, a porcelain surface remains hygienic. This makes it not only a desirable option but also a perfect option for hospitals and medical facilities.

They are Fire and Heat Resistant – yes, this means you can have one of those ultra-modern, feature fireplaces you see in the beautiful home magazines!

It also means they do not retain heat if you are using in a hot climate.

They are Frost and UV Resistant – making them ideal for external cladding. Worldwide commercial projects are opting for porcelain cladding due to its properties and low maintenance.

They are Lightweight – our Coverlam and Marazzi Grande ranges are ultra-thin with thicknesses from 2.5 - 5mm! This makes them easier to handle and install, but do not worry about them being so thin! They also possess flexural strength.

They are Water Resistant – giving you the ability to create stunning, minimal bathroom and wet room designs. They are also perfect for external flooring, particularly around the hotel poolside.

They are Stain Resistant – so no need to worry about using these tiles in kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms – or anywhere for that matter! Simple wipe spills away, because…

They are Also Chemical Resistant – hoorah! Everyday cleaning products, even bleach, can be used on these tiles without compromising their quality.

Big tiles does not mean big maintenance!

They are Durable or Wear Resistant – so there is no question as to why they are popular for not only hallways, foyers and hotels, but also for whole-house tiling. High traffic areas are not an issue for these tiles (in fact, it’s what they’re made for.)

They are Hygienic – thanks to porcelain’s non-porous properties, a porcelain surface remains hygienic. This makes it not only a desirable option but also a perfect option for hospitals and medical facilities.

They are Environmentally Friendly – porcelain is environmentally friendly to manufacture and its raw materials are recyclable. Clay, flint and silica are natural products and are sustainable. Yes, porcelain tiles can also be recycled.

Where Can Large Tiles be Used?

The short answer to this is pretty much anywhere in residential and commercial designs!

The long answer? Well… garden pathways, external cladding, hallway floors, hallway walls, living room walls, living room floors, fireplace surrounds and hearths, kitchen floors, kitchen walls, kitchen splashbacks, fabrications, alcoves, doorways, bathroom walls, bathroom floors, shower enclosures, bedroom walls, bedroom floors, patios, swimming pools, yacht interiors, lobbies, office floors and walls, hospital walls and floors, and other public spaces.

Extra large floor tiles are perfect for achieving a sleek and understated floor design. Larger tiles give more space for the tiles’ surfaces to stand out without interruption, showing off their natural colours and patterns.

For homeowners looking to switch up their walls and floors, our stunning range of extra large floor tiles will be ideal.

There are a great number of benefits extra large floor tiles offer beyond their gorgeous appearance, which is why they’re so popular with interior designers and architects.

Create the illusion of space with large tiles

When it comes to decorating a small space in your home, it can be difficult to prevent the room feeling cramped or claustrophobic. One way to combat this is by using extra large floor tiles to create the illusion of more space. Thanks to a smaller number of grout lines between tiles, the room will instantly feel less cluttered and more airy than it would if you had chosen wooden planks or smaller tiles. Combined with other interior design hacks like a tactical colour palette and carefully placed mirrors, you can make a previously cramped space seem infinitely larger.

Add a sense of luxury to your home with large tiles

Whether you like a classic, rustic theme or you prefer minimal interiors, it’s plain to see how luxurious extra large floor tiles can make a room look - and, with a wide range of different styles available from Tiles Direct, any space can benefit from this added sense of opulence. In areas like hallways, large, marble-effect tiles can make for an elegant addition that not only visibly widens the space, but injects class and character into it, too.
