Inspired by the design trend of incorporating raw materials into design, the new Contract Collection of concrete-effect tiles adds a modern aesthetic to any space.

The Contract Collection has just landed from Spain and already it’s flying out of our warehouse. This new tile from Cifre Ceramica has broad appeal. Inspired by raw concrete, it appeals to lovers of this design aesthetic looking to update tired old spaces. Contract is ideal to create a fresh, modern aesthetic in residential and commercial spaces. These concrete-effect tiles are available in a wide range of sizes and formats for walls and floors, from 60×120 to 33,3×100 and square options in between. Contract can be installed just about anywhere indoors, with R11 anti-slip options available on special order. World of Tiles stocks three colourways:

  • Contract White is a bright, warm white and will brighten a space without it looking clinical;
  • Contract Pearl is a light-mid grey and looks fresh with raw wood and crisp white ceramics; and
  • Contract Sand is a popular beige and warms a room while keeping it contemporary.

Attractive décor tile adds subtle texture

Add to this the matching Nantes Contract décor tile in 33,3×100 format. Its delicate relief pattern will bring a subtle texture to your decorative scheme and looks beautiful as a kitchen or bathroom splashback, feature wall or alcove inset. Make a feature of a wet room by tiling all walls with this gorgeous décor tile.

Concrete-effect’s lasting appeal

All indications are that concrete-look tiles will outlast the fickleness of fashion and is one of those trends that will remain appealing and classic for decades to come. As manufacturing and design technology improves, concrete-effect tiles have become so realistic that only the grout lines will give them away. The benefits are of course that they are much easier to install than screed, and as porcelain floor tiles they are optimal conductors for underfloor heating. Contract is rectified so you can butt the tiles right up against each other for a virtually seamless finish.
