Digitally Printed Tiles - New Technology, Classic Look
igitally printed tiles are ceramic tiles that are manufactured and decorated so as to look like classic marble flooring or wall tiles. This means that you can have the enduring elegance of marble or natural stone surfaces in your home combined with the durability and ease of installation and maintenance of modern ceramic tiles. In the manufacture of these tiles, digital inkjet printing reproduces on the surface of a ceramic tile a high resolution image of the contrasts and patterning found in highquality marble or other natural stone, such as travertine, onyx or banded calcite. These ceramic tiles are therefore not affected or
corroded by moisture, heat or humidity as natural stone is, and yet still enable you to achieve an entirely natural, authentic look. In addition, the manufacturing process means that these tiles will not fade in direct sunlight, be damaged by water, or suffer from excessive wear and tear, and so they will retain their colour, look and appearance for many years to come, no matter the conditions. A further advantage is that you can have the look of marble or another natural stone at a fraction of the cost and without further depleting a valuable natural resource.
â€œDigitally printed tiles are now being produced by some of the worldâ€™s leading international tile manufacturersâ€? Leading international ceramic tile manufacturers who are creating ranges of tiles using digital printing are increasing the number and variety of the designs that they offer, and as a result there are now many stunningly realistic representations of natural stone available, along with coordinating accents and finishing pieces. This means you have a wide range of looks and styles to
choose from and you can select tile designs and patterns, in both polished and matt finishes, to enhance any design concept. The colours and shading of these tiles are designed to mirror the shapes and hues of natural stone and the effect is sophisticated and elegant, yet they are robust enough to stand up to the rigours of modern life. Digitally printed tiles are relatively large in size (they come in sizes 49.5 x 49.5cm or 49.5 x 99cm), meaning that installation is easy and straightforward, and a good deal less grouting is required to instal tiles of this size. These tiles also require little or no maintenance, as unlike natural stone they donâ€™t stain and are very easy to clean. These imaginative, technologically-advanced tiles mean that you are getting the best of
â€œThese beautiful tiles for both floors and walls reproduce a classic marble or natural stone look and combine it with all the convenience and durability of contemporary ceramic tilesâ€? both worlds. You can enjoy the refinement and charm that natural stone provides, while at the same time having a durable, low-maintenance floor or wall surface that can withstand the trials of everyday use.
