Large Formats

Large format tiles

Large format tiles enhance every space with minimalist, designer style.
 
There are fewer grout lines in comparison to small format tiles, creating a visual effect that amplifies the space, giving the impression of a larger, continuous surface. The large format tiles, if rectified to create perfectly straight edges, can be laid with almost invisible joints between one tile and another (a minimum gap of 2mm is still present).
The large, rectified tiles can be laid with a seamless effect, further creating a continuous and uniform effect on the floors and walls.
 
Large format tiles often feature sombre hues, yet the large surface creates the perfect canvas for interesting material effects, structures and patterns.
Wood, stone, concrete and marble effects adapt to every lifestyle, both indoors and outdoors.
From a technical point of view, large porcelain stoneware tiles require impeccable installation. Hiring a professional floor layer is strongly recommended to manoeuvre the tiles and prepare the laying surface.
 
To lay large format tiles, the screed/subfloor must be perfectly smooth, without any unevenness. You might risk breaking the slab on any non-linear surface.
Large format tiles are also synonymous with reduced thickness, featuring a thickness of less than 1cm. The minimum and maximum thicknesses range from 3.5 mm to a maximum of 6mm, reaching sizes up to 160x320.
The most suitable material is porcelain stoneware, which is very compact, solid and non-porous, it is also easier to maintain (for example in the kitchen).

Where to use large format tiles?

Large format tiles have an exceptional aesthetic impact and can enhance walls and floors of residential, public or commercial areas in a unique and special way.

What defines a large format tile?

In the past, an 80x80 slab would have definitively been considered a large format, whereas nowadays, large format tiles can reach up to 160 x 320 centimetres. However, the range is very extensive, so even tiles measuring 80x80 can be considered a large format.

Advice from Onetile.it to perfectly install large format tiles

To correctly install large format tiles, the screed (foundation) must be perfect, without any irregularities. Since a large format tile features a reduced thickness, from a minimum of 3.5 mm to a maximum of 6mm, reaching sizes up to 160x320, if the foundation is not perfectly level, there is always the risk of breaking the slab.
 
A minimum grout line of 2.00 mm is recommended
