Ceramic Floor Tiles
The Award winning Elite Sumba Yellow from the CP Group, is a stimulating compilation of floor and wall tiles, mosaics and borders that presents an exciting summer style for the home with its striking marble patterns.
Uniting the distinctive characteristics of marble with boldly diverse tones of yellow, brown, blue and grey, reminiscent of bright summer days and seductive, balmy nights, Elite Sumba Yellow’s modern design sits flawlessly with contemporary streamlined kitchen cabinetry, or can fit equally well with vintage style furniture.
Perfectly suited to the fashion conscious and those that like to make a real style statement, Sumba Yellow’s fascinating marble patterns and honed, matt effect tiles, look more like a piece of contemporary art to adorn your kitchen walls or a striking splash-back behind a cooker or sink, or even a full feature wall for the more daring.

The two new tile collections – Roman Mosaics and Welsh Mountain Slate are designed to be both beautiful and functional.
“I’m really excited about the new tile collections,” says Nick. “Welsh Slate is a great product. I love the Welsh mountains and I love the colours when the sun breaks through – the green meadows, crystal streams, blue skies – and, of course, the perfect blue-grey of the slate.

Leading tile manufacturer, CP Group, has unveiled the next generation of polished porcelain with the launch of its innovative Portia collection.

Available exclusively in the UK from CP Group, Sandstorm, in our picture, combines different shades of porcelain to create dramatic sandstone-like patterns with a luxurious polished finish.

Bright and bold, tiles from the Collage range, take their inspiration from the Pop Art movement of the 1950s and 60s, when collage and painting were combined to construct new art forms that heralded the cultural transformation of Britain and America at the time.

This begins with the launch of Tile Basics this month, which will carry tiles starting from just 36p each.

Here is some expert advice from award winning tile manufacturer CP Groupâ€™s marketing executive, Katy Black:
Making a statement in the home is this seasonâ€™s interior trend, bringing excitement and creativity back into decorating.
With more people improving not moving, now is the time to inject personality into the home – adding colours, textures and patterns can seem daunting after a decade of â€˜magnoliaâ€™ and â€˜white washâ€™, but feature walls are back ,adding the â€˜wowâ€™ factor without the hassle of re-decorating the whole room.
A specially selected collection of 37 new tile designs, featuring technically innovative and stunning surface effects, has been brought together in the latest Craven Dunnill Renaissance brochure, just published and available on request.
This latest collection reveals an emerging trend, towards bolder and more dramatic style statements for mainstream tiles: Industrial metallic tones are interpreted as urban chic in the new Actual range featuring intense, burnished mahogany and pitted silver options. In contrast, the delicate lustre glaze, which adorns the classic Blonda leaf design, featured here, has a timeless appeal, reflected in its black and white palette. The evocatively named Diablo range, is a dramatic example of the return of colour for bathroom walls with a blood red, three dimensional design, which seems to shimmer before your eyes.
