Discover 5 of the Best Porcelain Tile Effects
Posted on March 25, 2021

Porcelain tiles have a multitude of great qualities. They’re resistant to stains, scratches, and moisture. You couldn’t set your sites on a more durable or hard-wearing tile for your home. However, these practical benefits don’t mean you have to scrimp on style and design. There are countless tile effects available that allow you to have quality tiles and beautiful interior design.


Cement and concrete effect porcelain tiles are undoubtedly one of the most popular contemporary looks. Both residential and commercial spaces have adopted the industrial aesthetic and compliment the look with minimalist and chic furnishings.

It is no secret that the grey hue of concrete tiles can look drab to many; cultivating feels of pavements or basement floors. Cold, dingy, and uninviting. However, investing in a high end concrete tile will certainly transform any space and teamed with the right interior design scheme can look expensive and welcoming.


What is there not to love about marble porcelain tiles? Cheaper than their real stone counterparts, marble effect tiles enable you to have a luxurious look without an astronomical price tag. Furthermore, marble tiles can make an impact on both floors and walls, meaning the options you have for designing a space are endless.

At Ferreira’s we stock a multitude of different marble effect porcelain tiles. We have subtle off-white hues with delicate veins thread through. On the opposite end of the scale, we have high contrast marble tiles emblazoned with strikes of gold and ribbons of rich colour. Let marble do the talking in the space you are renovating by opting for tasteful and quality furnishings that compliment the tiles you choose.


Bold. Futuristic. Powerful. Metal effect tiles work for a myriad of different residential and commercial spaces. For a long time metallics have been a popular interior trend, from stainless steel to industrial copper. We highly doubt you can open an interior design magazine without hints of metal making an appearance.

Metal tiles are versatile and can be equally as attractive in bathrooms as they are in lounges. They give a sense of urban glamour that is sleek and stylish. Metallic tiles often have reflective surfaces which bounce light around a room with ease. This can make rooms appear larger, even if you choose darker hued tiles.


A classic look, stone has stood the test of time as one of the most popular wall and flooring options. Slate flooring and exposed brickwork are two charming styles that you will often see in homes, hotels, and restaurants. However, stone can perish, and it does require upkeep. This is where stone effect porcelain tiles can play a vital role in your renovations.

Porcelain tiles are highly durable, low maintenance and perfect for high traffic areas in your home. Merging the qualities of porcelain tiles with the beauty of natural stone is a match made in interior design heaven.


Wood flooring has been popular since the 19th century. Despite developments in production and different treatments to ensure longevity, real wood flooring has its pitfalls. Whilst it cannot be denied that wood flooring is attractive, it can be easily damaged and difficult to repair.

Wood effect porcelain tiles can allow you to bring nature inside, without having to worry about costly or difficult fixes in the future. Ferreira’s Bois Urban, Forest, and Woodland ranges of wood look tiles can be used in homes and commercial spaces with great effect.
