Which Tiles Are Best? Current Tile Trends - Trying to find tiles that won't date too quickly, and are on-trend / in-fashion isn't easy. A lot of the trends come around again eventually but not always exactly the same. We're currently talking about Large Format Tiles, include XXL Tiles. Those are hard to cut and difficult to get full adhesive coverage with. Tough fully vitrified true porcelain that will be smaller in thickness and very hard to cut. Often hand cut with diamond discs. And then of course your ceramics (hand made in the UK, or machine made and imported). And not forget the mosaics. Very hard to get flat.
