From the clean and minimalistic look of white subway tiles to bright and cheerful glass and mosaics, walls tiles can be used to create a mood in your room, and can have a significant impact on how the space looks and feels. Light colours will create an illusion of space, while dark tiles can look stylish and sophisticated.

Lappato Tiles Melbourne
Don't worry if you've never heard of Lappato tiles, as we're here to tell you all about them. From the Italian word for semi polished, Lappato tiles are, as you would think, semi-polished tiles. They have a look of their own, which is somewhere between polished and matt, and their finish very much depends on the factory where they were produced, as it's all down to the amount of polish they receive. For example, some tiles have a highly polished feel, while some factories turn out Lappato tiles with a much rougher finish.
As we've already said, the finish on Lappato tiles can vary from those which have been given just a very slight polish, just on the 'high spots' of a textured glaze, to those tiles whose surface has been almost fully polished, to reveal some of the pits or dull spots left behind. This is often a deliberate ploy to replicate real stone, which often has natural fissures. Those tiles with a rougher finish, are less susceptible to showing scratches than fully polished tiles, and are also less slippery.
So all this sounds well and good, but how can you identify a Lappato tile? The best way is to call into Yeomans Bagno & Ceramiche showroom in Eltham, and see for yourself one of the best ranges of Lappato tilesMelbourne has available. Here you'll see that lappato tiles have two depths, one that is usually shiny and reflects light, while the other has a more matt finish, which may feel rough to the touch. This means that the tile will reflect the light while offering some anti-slip properties too.
While you may be wondering whether this kind of tile is suitable for use in places such as bathrooms, the answer depends on a number of factors. The very nature of the tiles, with their slightly rough, non-slip finish means that, from a safety point of view, they would be ideal, however this characteristic also means that they're more difficult to clean, and keep clean, than smoother tiles. Therefore, if cleanliness is more of a priority than ensuring that your bathroom floor is non-slip, you may want to look at some alternative versions that require less cleaning.
However, the best way to find out whether Lappato tiles are suitable for your floor is to come along to our Melbourne tile showroom and speak to one of our experienced staff. They'll be able to tell you all you need to know about not just our Lappato tiles, but about all our floor and wall tiles. We stock a range of Lappato tiles in different styles, colours and sizes, so we're sure to have some that will be suitable for your tiling project. Drop by soon and find out more.

Carrara & Calcutta Marble Tiles
While we'd all like to be able to decorate our homes with solid natural Carrara marble or Calcutta marble, the cost of this beautiful material makes it impossible for most homeowners in Australia to do so. That said; there is a more affordable option and you can have Carrara marble or Calcutta marble in your home without having to break the bank.
Carrara marble and Calcutta marble look tiles are a more cost effective option, and they are available from Yeomans Bagno & Ceramiche, one of the most competitively priced suppliers of all kinds of marble look tiles in Melbourne.
Carrara Marble and Calcutta Marble Tiles in Melbourne
Both Carrara marble and Calcutta marble are timeless classic that are widely recognised as the top marble of choice for homeowners in Australia and all over the world.
The tradition colour of Carrara marble is white but can tonally change to include a slight hue of grey, with an intricate patterning of light to charcoal grey veins. Sophisticated Italian Carrara marble tiles mimic true Carrara marble quite well to the point that every tile is an individual piece of art.
From traditional to a more minimalist and modern style, Carrara marble tiles are suitable for a huge range of different interior design schemes. Commonly used in bathroom and kitchens, Carrara marble tiles can be installed as floor and wall applications.
At first glance Calcutta marble and Carrara marble seem similar but once you know what to look out for, you’ll be able to easily distinguish between the two.
Calcutta marble is normally whiter with bolder, more dramatic veining than Carrara marble.
Both Calcutta marble and Carrara marble tiles emulate natural stone so the best tiles will be where repetition is minimal to the point that every piece is an individual – just like natural stone.
To ensure you get a good blend of shades, we recommend laying out your tiles in the allocated area before fixing them in place.
Whether you’re looking for Carrara or Calcutta marble tiles for your flooring in your master bathroom, for your kitchen backsplash or for the vanity unit in your en suite, we’ve got the marble tile that you need.
