Modern engineered stones are available in so many more colours than natural stones. There’s a whole rainbow of shades, in fact, so you can have almost any hue you like for your quartz worktop or new bathroom tiles. We’ve picked a few of our favourites in each colour.
Tiles don’t have to be plain, dull or matching. Both individual decorative tiles and decorative tiling patterns made from plain tiles have been used to make homes and businesses more beautiful since Roman times. In the ruins of Pompeii, you can still see ancient tiles arranged in mosaics, bands of colour and painted with plants and flowers.
