Selecting an Appropriate Tile for the Workspace

Companies are placing greater importance on creating desirable office environments, and with many workers slowly returning to the office after a long period of remote working, now is the perfect opportunity to refresh your commercial space with brand new office tiles.

Tiles don’t have to be boring, but in order to fulfil their purpose there are some important factors that need to be considered. When looking for an office tile you need to think about - durability, maintenance, cost and safety – which may lead you to decide on a tile with anti-slip properties or one that can withstand heavy traffic and footfall.

On the other hand, the design and layout of the space needs thought – for example, is the office open-plan? By specifying a large, neutral tile you can create the illusion of space alongside retaining consistency throughout; this can be particularly effective in a large commercial space lacking natural light.

Tiles can also be used to create an impactful reception area. By selecting a wall tile in a bold design, you can build a feature wall that aligns with brand colours and helps to set a good first impression for visitors entering the building.

Here at CTD Architectural Tiles we offer ceramic and porcelain tiles for commercial office environments of any size.

Porcelain Pavers Tile Ranges

Ranges: Maiora Concrete Effect | Bow | Time

Suitable for use on both the wall and floor, our Time tile is extremely high resistance and available in a natural, polished or anti-slip finish. An ideal choice for a large-scale office, the timeless and elegant stone can easily cope with heavy footfall and daily wear and tear. Available for specification in a range of sizes, Time is an extremely versatile option for a commercial project.

To create more of a visual statement, we would recommend installing something colourful. The Bow wall tile - available in colours including red, blue and green - would perfectly suit a reception area where it can truly make an impact. Inspired by the distinctive roof tiles seen in the Mediterranean, the glazed tile stands out due to its relief pattern and characteristic volume.

For a more stylish design that resembles wooden floor, we would suggest our Aspenwood tile. The porcelain design is available in a wide range of shades and mimics the characteristics of natural wood grain. Suitable for interior and exterior use, this tile is a great option for modern office buildings looking for a rustic or skandi inspired interior.

Ideal for a converted office building or commercial space looking to create an industrial feel, The Maiora Concrete Effect tile is available for specification in a range of earthy colours and in two size options – 1200x1200mm and 1200x2400mm.

Each office environment presents its own challenges, which is why we always work closely with the client to understand all aspects of the project brief.
